    Lucy, in minutes your family will be laying your body to rest in God’s good earth. I wish it weren’t so as you were too young. You have touched so many lives, young and old, it won’t be the same with you gone. Reality is, no one prepares family to consider the coming years without the matriarch, rock, the soul of a family. You were that soul Lucy. The honor gets passed on as family members pass, but sometimes, with the passing of souls like yours, it leaves a hole. God willing, Conrad, Connie, Terri & Tom’s heart will be spared the pain of such a loss and he will fill their hearts with the love and knowing that you feel no pain and suffer no more. I love my memories of childhood, thanking God you were a big part of my growing up. Thank you Lucy for being mom to so many of us. God bless you.

  • Terri Claybo-Handrich

    Momma I miss you so much… You are such an amazing person and I am so blessed that I got to be your daughter.. I am so sad that Adalynne only got you for a little while, but I will never ever let her forget you. I couldn’t ask for a better Angel to watch over all of us! I prayed for a miracle that you would come back to us, but Jesus needed you more. I am so jealous that he gets to see you everyday. Love you to the moon and back. HAVE A GREAT DAY!

    We, the daughters of Wade and Dot Ammons, extend our sympathies to your family during the loss of your wife and mother. Mom and Dad always enjoyed welcoming any of the Claybo family into their home. Lucy must have been a special person much like our Mom, Dot, was.

    Lucy was the kind of neighbor everyone dreams of having. She was always there for my family. She loved my kids just like her own and they spent as much time at hers and Conrad as home. Baseball, football, tag or whatever all the kids in the neighborhood gather to play and always some knid of treats for them. Thank you for letting our family be apart of your life for over 50 years and all the love, caring angel you were to all. We will miss you but have beautiful memories to hold in our hearts. Our prayers go out to the family for comfort and peace knowing your no longer suffering and heaven has gone another precious angel. We loved you Lucy!

  • Judy Hazel

    To Conrad, Connie, Tom and Terri…My heart goes out to you as you lose this precious part of your life. I have so many happy memories from my childhood of your mom and spending time in your home…eating oreos!(you always had them), playing Barbies, playing school, running in your big yard and your mom running your house with love and friendship to all! If you feel like a mountain has just disappeared from your horizon, that is how I felt as I lost my parents…my courage came from the thought of finishing the journey without them, but with all the love,faith wisdom, time and effort they had poured into me. May your memories now all fade to good and God’s presence be real to you at this time. I love you all! Steve and Judy Hazel

  • Billie and Tony

    No words will ever describe how Lucy felt to everyone in the Earley family. She was my mother’s best friend. She was there in every aspect of every stage in my life. In my family’s life. There will never be enough words to make the loss go away or make the pain lessen. She was truly one of a kinda and you can see it in every person she touched and every member of her family. We might not be there physically but know that our hearts are there with all of you 100%. I know she is sitting up in heaven right now telling Mom all about what’s been going on and smiling when she talks about all of us. Lucy Claybo…until we meet again.

  • Phyllis Claybo

    Lucy-I will miss our ” talks” with each other, our texting times, because I always knew you’d answer quickly, and knowing you could be counted on for prayer….Thankyou for your friendship, for being a grand part of my married life…just always being there for me. You truly were an angel and I bet the singing was loud and glorious when you entered heaven!!!! Love you….

  • Keith&Joann Gardinier

  • C. Joyce Droll-McNamee

    Lucy will always be remembered as a very dear friend of more than fifty years. We shared time together in high school, choir and cruises Saturday night in Corpus Christi as silly teens.
    I will have her in my heart always .

  • Samantha

    Lucy was always welcoming with open arms. Living next door during my childhood, I spent many days running in and around her house. As well as many dinners with her family and grandchildren. She treated me just like part of the family. I will never forget all the memories made. She was a wonderful woman and will be truly missed!

  • Lisa Claybo-Pundt

    Aunt Lucy is in a better place now.
    She held a special spot in my heart and I loved her dearly. Aunt Lucy has always been supportive, generous, and loving. She has been there for me when I needed her in my life and will be greatly missed. – Lisa
