She was united in marriage with Donald Nordquist on June 27, 1959, in LaBolt. They were blessed with four children: Cheryl, Kristine, Todd, and Brad.
Lucille lived in the LaBolt area all her life and lived in the same house for 60 years. She stayed at home and raised her children and helped Don at the gas station. She owned and operated the grocery store in LaBolt from 1977 until 1993. She and Don managed the LaBolt Mini Mall until her retirement.
