LUCILLE IRENE MORELAND Saturday, September 17, 1927 - Monday, August 21, 2017

Mrs. Lucille Irene Moreland, age 89, of Clever, Missouri, passed away on Monday, August 21, 2017, in her home. She was born September 17, 1927 in Vandalia, Illinois, the daughter of Louis and Irene (Metcalf) Knabe.

Lucille was united in marriage to Kenneth James Moreland, Sr. on November 5, 1945. Soon after Kenneth’s retirement in 1986, they moved to Republic, Missouri, and then had finally made their home near Clever for the past 17 years. Kenneth and Lucille enjoyed nearly 67 years of marriage before Kenneth’s death on June 7, 2012, and were blessed with nine children.

Lucille was known as a frequent visitor to the first Wal-Mart in Republic, so much so that she and her friends from Clever even had their own “table” to sit at inside of the Wal-Mart at the Radio-Grill. On Lucille’s front door was a sign… “If I’m not at home, I’m at Wal-Mart.” Others who preceded Lucille in death were their son, James Allen; their daughter, Jeanne; two grandchildren; and her parents.

She is survived by seven children, Joyce Henderson, Janet Moreland, Kenneth James Moreland, Jr., Terry (Yvonne) Moreland, Roger Moreland, Leslie Fiedler, and Teresa (Eddie) Farmer; 22 grandchildren; and several great and great-great grandchildren.

To the family please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one.  May you take comfort from the scriptures that soon all sickness and death will one day be a thing of the past. May these scriptures give you a measure of comfort.  Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3-5
Dear Aunt Lucy, I will miss writing to you and thinking of things to make you laugh.  You were always so sweet to me and my Mother.  I have missed stopping in at Mother's when you and uncle Kenny were in town,  listening to stories and talk about your family. You were and are, still loved. To my cousins: Joyce, Janet, Ken, Terry, Roger, Leslie and Teresa... I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother.  She was a very precious lady.  I pray God will be your comfort in your grief.  Love you all.
We didn't get to see Aunt Lucy very often, but we loved her and are saddened at her passing. May God comfort all her children, and all of their families. May she be resting AND rejoicing now in her Heavenly Home.
