Lucy was a graduate of Burdett College in Boston, MA. She worked as an office manager for the Eastern Massachusetts Council of the Boy Scouts of America and as a real estate broker and corporate relocation director for the Martel-Fletcher Company.

Lucy was a long-time resident of both Manchester and Hampton, NH. In her youth, Lucy was an avid surf fishing enthusiast who enjoyed fishing on Plum Island and sailing offshore aboard her uncle's 90 foot schooner out of Gloucester. She was an early supporter of the Strawberry Banke Museum in Portsmouth. For many years, Lucy was an active volunteer for the UNH Cooperative Extension Service. A skilled artisan with clay pottery, Lucy was at one time a juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen. Above all, Lucy was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother who cherished time spent with her family.
