Lucy was married to Charles Miles for many years. After his death she later married Zebedee Blue Jr.  Lucy was employed at the Milbourne Crab Company for many, many years. After leaving the seafood industry Lucy was employed as a custodian for the Crisfield Elementary School #1. Lucy was also a loving home caregiver for many years.

Anyone that came in contact with Lucy grew to love her. Lucy would have you rolling in stitches with her dry sense of humor. Lucy was known as the local family historian. She could tell you who was related to whom down to the 25th cousin twice removed.  Lucy was quite a strong and compassionate person. She would open her home and kitchen to all. She never turned down anyone who was hungry. Lucy instilled strong Christian values and strong work ethics to her family.  Lucy was a communicator; she loved talking on the phone to her best friend Miss Emily Taylor and all of her close associates, her children and grandchildren on a daily basis.

Lucy leaves to cherish fond memories with:  two daughters, Gloria Boon of Norristown, PA and Lucy Ames of Millersville, MD; four grandchildren, Tanyous F. Boone of Norristown, PA, Adrienne M.
