Life Reflections

Funeral Services for Mrs. Maggie Wormley Lucas of Warsaw were held 1 P. M. Saturday, November 29, 2008 at the Second Baptist Church with Pastor Gernard Reed, Officiating.

Maggie Wormley Lucas was born on September 22, 1915 in Reedville, Virginia, one of nine children, to the late Henry and Lenora Fleet Wormley.

Maggie spent her early childhood in Northumberland County, where she was baptized and entered into the fellowship of Shiloh Baptist Church in Burgess, Virginia. At the age of 23, she moved to Warsaw, Virginia and shortly thereafter, united in marriage with the late Harry B. Lucas.

In her thirty years of working outside of the home, Maggie was a nanny, housekeeper, and florist assistant. She then retired and assumed the role of a full-time babysitter to multiple grandchildren and neighborhood children as well. She always had a kind word, a funny story, and a dollar in her pocket for anyone in need. Maggie may have been a mother of five, but she was truly a Momma to all.

In addition to her husband, Maggie was preceded in death by four of her children: Harry Beverly Lucas, Jr., Phyllis Lucas Starks, Mary Elizabeth Lucas and James Edward Lucas.

On Sunday, November 23, 2008, Maggie quietly slipped into eternal rest.

Left to cherish her memory are one son, William Henry Lucas and his wife, Jean Richardson Lucas of Tappahannock, Virginia; twenty seven grandchildren; thirty-three great grandchildren; twenty-four great great grandchildren; a host of nieces and nephews.

And for their many years of friendship and dedication to our beloved Maggie, the family would also like to make special note of her brother-in-law, Owen Thornton of Baltimore, Maryland; Ms. Fannie Johnson of Warsaw, Virginia; her nephew, David Cottrell and wife, Jeanette Pope Cottrell of Kilmarnock, Virginia; Gloria Jean Carey, Sandra Gray and Shirley Cupitt all of Warsaw, Virginia.

Interment services were held at the church cemetery where her pall bearers were her grandsons and her floral bearers were her granddaughters and nieces.
