For those who don't know our Mom's story, or some who have forgotten....our Mom, Lucy Wiles, was orphaned by her mom at the age of 3 and again by her dad at the age of 11. There were two more sisters who married young and a brother who joined the Army (they lied and said he was 17, not 16, to get him in). She was raised by an aunt who shared her name, Lucy. She finished high school and wanted so very much to go into Nursing. During the war they were paid to go to school, so she signed up. However, the war ended, classes were no longer paid for, and she had to quit. It was very hard as she watched all of her classmates finish Nursing. She married a farmer, Sherman Wiles, and had 3 girls, Sharon, Donna and Tracie. She loved our farm, working hard for it's success, but always dreamed, one day, of going back to nursing school. Our Dad later retired from the farm and they moved closer to a vocational school where she was able to be admitted (at 50 years old). At that time, you could become an LPN in 13 months. She stayed up most nights until 1:00 AM, cramming, and was able to make perfect scores without missing one single day. At last, 35 years later, she finally became a Nurse. She absolutely LOVED working at Rayville Guest House! She loved all of the residents and did her job well. She worked for the next 12 years until she had to quit to take care of Dad's failing health. Even after we lost Dad in 2000, she volunteered many hours to needy neighbors and residents at the local nursing home where Dad had been living. From the ages of 83-88, she has lived in a nursing home herself and, if able, she would STILL be taking care of others. THANK YOU MAMA for being the most selfless and giving person we know. Thank you for teaching us all how God wants us to treat others. We love you, Mom, Aunt Lucy, Granny Lucy, Mamaw Lucy and just Lucy (from a lifetime of friends). You've fought the "good fight" and will one day hear our God say, WELL DONE! We will always love you, Sharon, Donna Sue & Tracie.

I knew most of Mama/Grandma Lucy's story. I spent many a night at the Wiles house with my bestie, Tracie. I knew of them as my 2nd set of parents. I am proud to be a nurse as well and to walk in the footsteps of a wonderful nurse like Mama Lucy. She always treated me as one of her children. She made the best buttermilk pie, ever. Rest in Peace, Mama Lucy. God be with Tracie, Donna Sue, and Sharon. Love y'all.
