A humble woman, Lucia appreciated all things and delighted in spending time with her family. She was a homemaker, who loved to cook and be surrounded by those she loved and loved her. You could always catch her listening to all types of Mexican music but most of all, music from her favorite artist – Chuy Quintanilla.
