“Grandma” as she was affectionately known by many of those who loved her, was a graduate of Kipp High School in Kipp, Kansas. She was a track star and was awarded for her 50-yard dash.  She worked for many years with Chesterfield Manufacturing and later kept children in her home.


Lucille was an avid reader, and often would read a “good book” long past midnight. Her hobbies included traveling, reading, dancing, flower gardening, shopping with loved ones, and she was especially partial to “a good Belk store.”  She often shared fond memories of her travels with her husband Fred.  She was a New York Yankees fan. She loved big and always had a welcoming home to anyone who stopped by for a visit.  Her smile was infectious and her love unconditional.  


In addition to her parents, Lucille was proceeded in death by her husband of 56 years, Frederick Wilson Gaskins, Sr.; brothers: Dean and Dale Rinquist, sister: Virginia Barr; and grandson, James Thomas “Tommy” White.
