Lucille Geraldine Peoples was born on November 6th, 1935 deceased on September 7th, 2021 at the age of 85. She lived a wonderful life full of laughter, love, tears, joy, sadness and happiness. She always seemed to be happy, loving, kind and generous. As a youth, her family would travel from city to city between Arizona and California depending on the crop in season at the time. She and her family would pick whatever was in season. She affectionately remembered the times that they stayed at her Grandma and Grandpa Brogdon's dairy farm in Arizona. When they were not traveling, they would stay there on the farm. This wonderful woman outlived all of her siblings, her mom and dad as well as 5 nieces and nephews.

She always brought joy and happiness to everyone she met. She was kind hearted and would give you whatever you needed even if it meant she went without. She truly loved life always thinking the best of everyone. She met her 1st love in Tulare, CA on a peach farm. His name was James Peoples. They married on June 23rd, 1955 and soon thereafter began their family with a daughter and a son.

Lucy was a woman of great faith. She always believed that God would take care of things.

She was quite an artist always enjoyed to cook, garden and crafting - including knitting, crochet, embroidery and oil painting. She would even make her own patterns for what she envisioned. She passed on those talents by teaching her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

With all of the difficulties she had while growing up, it was later on in life that she moved to Las Vegas, Nevada to attend Culinary School. Her family was very proud of her for completing culinary school. It was there that she put her skills as a sous chef working alongside well known mainstream chefs that would recruit Lucy due to her extraordinary skills working with food.

She is survived by her daughter, Debra Baltazar and her son, Marty Peoples and his wife Trisha. Grandchildren Michael, Clare, Katy, Bryan, Gerilyn, Sean and Samantha. As well as six great grandchildren and numerous nephews and nieces.

Our beloved mama and grandma will be greatly missed and will forever be in our hearts.
