Lacy lived many years in Flowery Branch, GA, was married and while raising her daughters owned her own home health care business, Interim Healthcare of NEGA. Always with a big smile on her face – always helping others in need. She was quite a Woman!
She was the life of the party or any gathering, she was very witty and a great mimic! She was a voracious reader and could discuss any topic. She loved music, most any genre and especially rock and roll. She always had a beautiful smile on her face and loved to live life. She made every moment count, even while sick she still had boundless energy. She loved her friends and family and adored her children and grandchildren. She left us too soon and would tell all this advice – Stay young at heart, love one another, don’t argue and enjoy the short time we have on this planet!
The memorial service will be held at Hamilton Mill Memorial Chapel and Gardens in Buford, GA on Friday, September 17, 2021 at 3:00 pm.
