She was united in marriage to Herschel Wisner on February 16, 1935 at the First Baptist Church in Woodward. They were blessed with four children, Gene, Laveta, Phillys and Thurlene. They made their home on the farm south of Ft. Supply and had 32 happy years together. During those years, Lucille stayed very busy raising her four children, as well as, working in the kitchen at Western State Hospital and later at Ft. Supply Public Schools.

She was a member of the Fairview Baptist Church and when that church disbanded she moved her membership to the Ft. Supple Baptist Church and was a faithful member there until her passing.

Supply Baptist Church’s 50th Anniversary Celebration as the oldest member of the church.

She especially loved to play Parcheesi with her daughters. She also loved to fish and loved spending time with her family.
