Lucille was loved and adored by so many, but her heart and soul were her “Girls” her mother, and all 13 brothers and sisters who will miss her dearly!

Lucille was born on July 25, 1956, to Elizabeth Ann King of Lebanon and the late Howard Dunn.

Third born seven months early, she was ready to see what this world had to offer. She took Catechism, attended, and was wed at St. Augustine of Lebanon, Kentucky.

Finding love at a young age she found love and married right out of high school Van Allen Newton from Campbellsville, Kentucky and moved to Detroit, Michigan for two years then returning to Kentucky moving to Louisville.

Lucille was very crafty and loved making things from her prom dress to all her husband’s clothes. She became a seamstress working for Enro and Fruit of the Loom for 35 years until her hand couldn’t. Lucille “Girls” was her heartbeat and her besties, but her sister was everything to her too.

She was preceded in death by Maternal and Paternal Grandparents, her father Howard Dunn, three sisters, Mary Ann Shockency, Emma P and Claudia Mae; one brother, David Keith Dunn.

She leaves to morn her girls, Vanetria Antoinette and Crystal Elizabeth both of Louisville, KY; her mother, Elizabeth A.
