She was a lifetime resident of West Monroe and was predeceased by her husband; Terrell Gordon Kincaid, Sr.; her sisters, Lavern and Lorraine; and her brother, Jack. She is survived by her children; Ann McClendon, Ross LaDart and Terry Kincaid; her grandchildren, Kathy Marshall, John D. McClendon, Jr. DVM, Sean LaDart, Lori LaDart, Terrell Kincaid, III, Tucker Kincaid, Logan LaDart and Lizzie LaDart Bergmann.Lucy life spanned generations all of whom benefitted from her positive influence. In retirement, she enjoyed life as a successful realtor and the owner of Lucy Lee, which was the pinnacle of retail fashion in North Louisiana in the 1980. More importantly, as an employer, she mentored scores of young women who learned the value and practical responsibilities of having a job.She also loved her family of fellow retirees from the phone company known as the Pioneers.But Lucy was not a phone company pioneer in name only. In the late 1970, when a much higher paying male only company position became available, Lucy applied. When she was rejected solely due to gender, she sued and was eventually awarded the job along with back pay. Lucy never bragged or claimed martyrdom from her results, but lived with the quiet satisfaction of a Depression era matron providingfor herfamily. However, as a result of Lucy case, the Company changed its employment and promotionpolicies removing obstacles for similarly situated women across the South. As a former Union President reflected, Lucy broke the dam. She was a pioneer pioneer.Her friends and family viewed her as a super hero with boundless energy, confidence, and aggressive enthusiasm in everything she did.Honoring Lucy as pallbearers will be her grandsons John D. McClendon, Jr. DVM, Sean LaDart, Logan LaDart, Terrell Kincaid and Tucker Kincaid.Online condolence messages may be sent to family at www.kilpatrickfuneralhomes.com.
