It is with admiration but burdened hearts we announce the passing of our courageous and beautiful mother and grandmother. Lucille was predeceased by the love of her life, husband of 61 years, Jerry on May 19, 2010 and her dearest brother, George Collins on June 03, 2013.

Lucille was an outstanding cook and a gracious host. Lucille worked as a medical receptionist and then at The Hudson’s Bay Company and Canada Safeway. Retiring in 1986 after many years of dedicated service, Lucille enjoyed her retirement years with Jerry wintering in Palm Springs, California.

Lucille was a loving and supportive mother, grandmother and mentor. Mom/Nana, you will be deeply missed and always remembered.

Under A Blood Red Moon
By Brett Lang

Under a blood red moon
He let you leave us today
Now all the pain has gone away
Not a moment too soon

Under a blood red sky
In your loving memory
Love in our hearts will set you free
God only knows you tried

Now the sun begins to shine
We’ll wipe the tears away
In our thoughts and heart you’ll stay
To the end of time

Daylight give way to a blood red moon
Was the day she said goodbye
Salted faces from tears cried dry
“A Toast” To being all together, not a moment too soon

We all love you “Mamma Bear” and will forever miss you XO

I wrote this for Mom but dedicate it to Roslyn and Bernie & Janis and Neale for their never ending devotion of time and love

In living memory of Lucille Lang, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot Chapel, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. Telephone: (403) 241-0044.

Offer Condolence for the family of LANG, Lucille (nee Collins)

    Joan & I would like to offer our sincere condolences to all of you. It is always regretful that we seem to lose touch with extended family over the years but your Mom/Nana has always held a special place in my memories. She was a wonderful person.

    It has been thirty – five years that I have not seen you Janis. I lived next door to you and Neale, in Airdrie. I remember the fun times we shared together. I think of you, Neale and the boys ever so often.
    I am deeply sorry for your loss. I remember your Mom, Jan. I had met her once. She was a wonderful lady. Please know that you are in my prayers.
    Love in Christ

    To my family, my heart is with you I share your pain, I will miss Nana dearly. I have great memories. One that stands out was when I got to work with Nana and wrap groceries for her at Safeways Brentwood Mall and the the many camping trips when we were kids, but I suppose the biggest was the green candy jar that was hidden but always in sight, she was the best Nana one could have! Nana you were the best bar none.

    Seven weeks have passed,
    Since we had a heart-felt chat,
    That you were going to go.

    We shed some tears,
    We shared some laughs.
    You gave me strength,
    You showed your love,
    And forgave me of my past.

    Now that you’re reunited
    With Granddad in Heaven,
    Know that you are loved dearly
    by your grandson Kevin.

    Now that you are with God
    and Granddad at rest,
    I love and promise you both
    I will honour you proud
    and with your memories of
    kindness and unconditional love,
    I will try to do my best.

    And when we meet again,
    I will hope to say
    I did it for me and our loving family,
    And made you proud.

    All my love,

    I am at a loss for adequate words to express my sadness for you Roslyn and Janis. I had the blessed opportunity of knowing your mom. You are both a reflection of your mom, in the way you treat people with respect and empathy. Not to mention the way you make each person feel loved.
    I am so sorry for your loss.

    Memories – As Lucille was my sister-in-law, we have known one another a long time. As young couples Jerry& Lucille, Jack & myself shared such good times together. With young families we continued back and forth for family visits. Such great times and memories. Now our families have grown and it’s time to say goodbye Lucille.

    When I think of Auntie Lucille I always recall the beautiful bridal shower she gave me. Dinners at Christmas were also full of cherished memories. With time things slip away but time cannot take away what you hold in your heart. Condolences to the family. Shann
