She later graduated from San Jose State University with a BA in Nursing. She started her career in Hospital Nursing in Seattle, WA and continued to Millbrae, CA, Syracuse, NY, Cleveland, OH, and San Jose, CA. Her second career was dedicated to caring for Seniors which grew into Care Service Agency management positions. She met her husband, Joe in the Bay Area and was married on August 26, 1967 in Seattle. Soon thereafter they bought their home in Pleasanton, began a family and became active in the community. She was an active member of the Catholic Community of Pleasanton and a part-time Parishioner of Our Lady of The Sierras Church in Arnold, California, the location of their Mountain Home. Lucy spent her life helping people. She spent the first part of her career as a hospital nurse and later went on to become an advocate and management of Senior Care services. She enjoyed playing the piano, exercising, baking, traveling, playing horseshoes and playing cards, and small stakes gambling but most of all she enjoyed spending time with friends and family. Lucy was a diehard fan of the San Francisco Giants and 49ers. She was wife and best friend to her husband Joe for 56 years. She maintained a lasting relationship with her twelve siblings and extended family. She passed on the legacy of the Catholic faith, the love of neighbor, dedication to care giving and just having fun.
