Lucille Etta Wentworth went home to be with her Lord and Savior on December 16, 2010.  Born to John and Emma Stein on February 3, 1920 in Killdeer, North Dakota she enjoyed telling tales about growing up with five older, protective brothers.

During the Great Depression, she moved out west with her parents to Vancouver, Washington.  After graduating from Fort Vancouver High School, she worked at Howard’s Ice Cream Shop.  It was there she met Staff Sergeant Robert F. Wentworth.  They were married on June 7, 1943.  “Bob” was deployed in the European Theater during WWII.

Lucille loved being a mother to their three children; Cheryl, Steven and Nancy, and was a dedicated, loving mother.  With Bob’s support, Lucille believed that foremost their children’s relationship with Jesus Christ came first.  Her guidance and encouragement was foundational to their spiritual, academic, and personal growth.

    I was thirteen when Steve introduced me to his mother Lucille. After seeing her with her two daughters and with Steve, she set the standard for what all mothers should be for the rest of my life. She’s sweetest lady I’ve ever known.
