Lucy L. (Daley) Brickner, 93, of Lima, passed at 10:10 a.m. Wednesday at her residence.
She was born Jan. 11, 1920, in Lima to Pete and Mary (Pisanelli) Daley, who preceded her in death.
She married Richard Brickner on September 4, 1943. He preceded her in death on April 21, 2004.
Surviving are four children; Rocky (Bev) Brickner of Elida, Joe (Connie) Brickner of Shawnee, Kan., Nancy Taflinger of Elida and Patty (John) Singer of Coconut Creek, Fla.; nine grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren; three siblings; Tom (Pat) Daley of Findlay, Louie (Barb) Daley of Lima and Mary McMurray of Ventura, Calif.; and many nieces and nephews.
She was also preceded in death by a special son-in-law, Jim Taflinger; and three siblings; Frankie Daley, Vinnie Hughes and Bessie Kunkle.
Mrs. Brickner retired from Westinghouse in 1990. She was a member of St. Rose Catholic Church, Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 370 Auxiliary and American Legion Post 96. She was a volunteer for St. Vincent dePaul Society and a 1938 graduate of St. Gerard High School. She was a great mom, a great grandma and a great great-grandma. In her wonderful Italian tradition, she was the matriarch of the family. She never met a stranger and brought a smile to the face of all who were fortunate enough to know her. Her laugh and sense of humor were contagious and the stories of her life experiences left all who listened in stitches. But most of all, she was best known for her kindness, compassion and love. She simply never stopped giving. She will be dearly missed and never forgotten. Her love will live in our hearts forever.
Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 11 a.m. on Monday at St. Rose Catholic Church, the Rev. David Ross officiating. Burial will follow in Gethsemani Cemetery.
Visitation will be 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. on Sunday at Siferd-Orians Funeral Home, where a Parish Wake will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Memorial contributions may be made to St. Rose Catholic Church; St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Memphis TN; or Lima Central Catholic High School.
