Lucille Trossman, 94 years old, peacefully passed away on Wednesday, March 24, 2021 with her family by her side. Lucille loved her country and her hometown of Yorkville, of which she was a lifelong resident. Lucille’s work career began in the early 1950’s caring for George Widolff and taking care of Mickey and Dutch’s children. In the late 50’s she started working in Widolff’s Store and continued her employment there until 2003. She met a lot of people over the years and made many life-long friends.
Lucille had a gift for making each customer, young and old, feel special and she made sure everyone left satisfied. The children loved her ice cream cones with a little extra added as well as the candy she would so generously give them. The adults especially liked the way she attractively displayed the meat and made sure there were many different cuts to choose from. Lucille will always be remembered for walking barefoot most of the time while working. She dearly loved her work and put her whole heart into it.
Lucille developed a love for gardening at a young age. After she retired, she put her energies into tirelessly working to make sure her garden was free of weeds. Many days she worked from early morning till dusk barely stopping to eat. Her abundant bounty of potatoes, tomatoes and corn were shared with family and friends.
If anyone needed help, Lucille was there and was very innovative by taking what she had and making it all work out. She often fixed things with duct tape, even fixing a bad spot on her car making it look really good. Lucille loved her family and spent a lot of time with her many nieces and nephews when they were young. She loved her church parish, helping to make quilts for the annual picnic, as well as working in the lunch stand and at the Prime Rib Dinner.
Lucille will be greatly missed by her siblings Violet Trossman (Yorkville), Jo Ann Buschur (Hamilton), Rita Duggins (Cincinnati), Rose (Babe) Martini (Yorkville), and Floyd (Mary) Trossman (Yorkville), and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Joseph & Loretta (Kuebel) Trossman; brothers Kenneth Trossman and Roy Trossman; sisters infant Mary Trossman, Leah Davis, and Agnes Trossman.
