Born in Alexandria, Ontario on January 31, 1943, she was the youngest of six children. Lucille graduated from the Ontario College of Art in Toronto in 1965 and built a successful business in interior design, creating beautiful homes for families over four decades. Sundays found her at the kitchen counter in her apron, elbow deep in the pizza dough that would make Mrs. Pensa’s pizza renowned at bake sales, class parties and family events. A talented cook, her holiday tables were always surrounded by loved ones and heavy with platters of food prepared with love and lots of butter. She took great joy in all children and enormous pride in her own girls. The visits of her five grandchildren were an enduring happiness to the very end of her difficult illness.
