Lucille was born on Nov. 30, 1922, in Clifton, Texas, one of six siblings. At age 18 on Nov. 23, 1940, she married her lifelong love, Quentin “QP” Cain, and he was her loving companion for 64 years of marriage.
During Quentin’s service in World War II, she worked at a garment factory and the Bell Telephone exchange in Waco, Texas. She enjoyed her time contributing to the war effort and spoke fondly of her work for many years. Following the war, she dedicated herself to family life.
The Cain’s had one daughter, Caron, who they raised in Robinson, Texas.
Lucille was an accomplished seamstress and was often called on by family and friends to alter and make clothing. She sewed Caron’s prom dresses, her wedding gown, and her bride’s maid’s dresses. In addition to sewing, Lucille enjoyed cooking, tending her flower beds, and traveling with friends. She was a dedicated grandmother and will always be remembered lovingly by her grandson, Justin, as his “Gangan.”
Prior to becoming homebound, she was an active member of Beverly Hills Baptist Church.
Lucille was proceeded in death by her parents, five siblings, and her beloved Quentin.
She is survived by her daughter, Caron Tepe; son-in-law, Matthew Tepe; grandson, Justin Tepe, his wife, Lora Tepe; and her beloved great-grandsons, Quentin “Parker” and Jacob Tepe.
