ADRIAN – Lucille May Millet, age 89, of Adrian, died Friday, January 8, 2021, under the care of Hospice of Lenawee at Provincial House in Adrian, where she has resided the past 8 years. She was born January 16, 1931, in Tipton, the youngest child of fourteen born of the late Herman and Anna (Heubner) Luck. Lucille spent her early years on a turkey farm in Tipton, before moving to a farm on Pentecost Highway. Throughout her life she proudly dignified herself as a “farmer’s daughter.” She understood and exemplified the values of hard work and perseverance. On July 29, 1950, Lucille married Angel Luis Millet in Monroe, and he preceded her in death on March 29, 2008. Lucille primarily served as a loving homemaker for her family. She is fondly remembered for her skill at embroidery and for her famous old-fashioned peanut butter and chocolate fudges. Lucille also worked as a clerk at several local clothing stores. She especially enjoyed her tenure at the JC Penney department store in Adrian from 1971-1977. She greatly anticipated annual trips to Sault Ste Marie, MI with Angel and her six children. She was a longtime member of the First Church of the Brethren. Surviving are her children, Allen (Deb) Hatt of Jasper, Angel Millet, Jr., of TN, Deb (Sid) Barrow of Hudson, Cheryl Millet of WA, Marlene (Mike) Diederich of Tecumseh, and Kevin Millet of CA; eight grandchildren; and numerous great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, and step-grandchildren. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by all thirteen of her siblings.
