68, of O’Fallon, Missouri, was granted her angel wings on April 7, 2021.
Lucia is from the Latin for ‘light’. Undeniably fitting for this beacon of love and caring.
Lucia was loved by so many because she loved so many and so strongly. She was the perfect example of selflessness, as she gave and considered the needs and wishes of others more than her own.
She grew up in Affton, Missouri, the 7th and youngest child of Ione and Martin Rosemann and sister to Kathleen, Elvira, Gilbert, Shirley, Cecilia and Jane. Lucia attended St. George grade school and DuBourg high school.
She married to Dennis Nickell on June 01, 1973 and was planning for a big 50th wedding anniversary party for the last several years.
She was a loving mother to Jessica Dawn (Shinn), Dana Marie (Frank), and Jason Caleb, and a caring Mother in law to Lee Shinn, Jon Frank and Kathryn Wecker.
Lucia was a proud and loving Grandmother to Connor Orion Haupt, Harvey Robert Frank and Josephine Brook Nickell. She so loved all her children and grandchildren. She was constantly making crafts and knitting things for them.
Lucia loved strongly and cared deeply for so many. Her outgoing nature and willingness to greet anyone with kind words and a smile is shared by her grandson Harvey. She will be so dearly missed.
Rest in peace my love, my light.
