Lucy D. McAfee

Lucy Dunn McAfee, 93, passed away Tuesday, March 11, 2014.

She is survived by children Jennie McAfee Wildermuth (David), Pennie McAfee and Roy E. McAfee; sister Nancy Rankin (Don); grandchildren Eric Wildermuth, April McAfee Herlitz, Jane McAfee Jarrett, Duncan E. McAfee and Elizabeth McAfee; great- grandchildren Gavin E. Herlitz, Isabel Herlitz, Evan Wildermuth and Cohen Wildermuth; niece Judy Hallman; and nephews Jay and Ned May.

She was predeceased by her husband of 47 years, Ralph E. McAfee; sister Estelle Dunn May; and daughter-in-law Linda Wagner McAfee.

She was born in Bowling Green and then moved to Fredericksburg. While in Fredericksburg, she was a longtime member of Fairview Baptist Church and was a child care provider out of her home. She had worked as a C&P Telephone operator, then she volunteered as a plane spotter for the Army during World War II. Her main devotion was always to her family.

Her gentle and loving soul will live in the hearts of those whose lives she touched.

A memorial service and celebration of her life will be held at her home the weekend before Easter.

Expressions of sympathy may be made in her name to local food banks.
