Lucille McDowell

Lucille Hubbard McDowell (Granny Mac), our Mom and solid family rock, went to be with her Lord Saturday, June 2, 2018, after 89 years on this Earth.

During her younger years, she resided in Glace, WV, then moved to White Sulphur Springs, WV, in 1970.

Lucille retired from the Greenbrier after many years of service. She was the daughter of the Toney and LeAnna Hubbard.

Granny Mac was famous for spoiling her grandchildren and great-grandchildren with her cakes and brownies. She enjoyed crocheting afghans and giving them away to friends and those who were sick.

She could nearly always be found in the yard working on her flowers or in her rocking chair on the back porch with her cat.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, James Clyde McDowell; daughters, Linda McDowell Craft and Donna Jean McDowell; grandson, David Hoke; great-grandson, Liam Craft; siblings, Ruth McCarthy and Wanda Hubbard; sons-in-law: Vernon Hoke and Norman Smith; and special sisters-in-law, Hazel Largen, Noreen Ramsey, and Margie Dickerson.
