Obituary for Lucy Herring Elmore

Lucy H. Elmore
March 31, 1944 - December 12, 2018

La Grange-Lucy Herring Elmore, 74, passed away on Wednesday, December 12, 2018. Lucy was born March 31, 1944 to the late Vernon “Mutt” Herring and Virginia Ruffin Herring. Lucy’s husband of 46 years, Gerald Page Elmore, preceded her in death on August 1, 2007.

Lucy led a simple life. Nothing made her happier than being outdoors working in her flower beds. If you knew Lucy, you know that her dogs and horses held a special place in her heart. She took great care in finding just the right home for each of her beloved fur-babies.

With Lucy, if you didn’t want to know, you’d better not ask. She had an opinion about most things and didn’t mind sharing it. While she was quick to speak her peace, she had a heart of gold. She was always caring and generous, and would give to anyone in need. She loved her family fiercely and thought the world of her grandchildren. Ryan, Jason, and Sean were the apples of her eye and she was proud to dote on her grandboys.

Lucy lived life to the fullest. Each day was a fresh start and new adventure for her. Her fighting spirit carried her through life, right into her final moments.

A service to celebrate and honor Lucy’s life will be held Saturday, December 15, 2018 at 2 p.m. at Rouse Funeral Home with a time of visitation and fellowship to follow. Burial will take place at Fairview Cemetery.

Lucy is survived by her son, Gerald Page “Pete” Elmore, Jr. and wife, Barbara; three grandsons, Ryan Elmore, Jason Elmore and Sean Elmore; and four siblings, Johnny Herring, Vernon Herring, Penny H. Gray and June H. Tyndall.
