Lucille was born to Anton and Frances Vidlak on December 21, 1929. She was born in Omaha and was number 11 of 12 children. They lived on a farm in northwest Omaha.

Lucille was a faithful Jehovah’s Witness for over 50 years. She enjoyed discussing the Bible with everyone. She was an advid reader and was very passionate about her gardening. Her yard would look like a park with all the flowers in bloom and her apple pies were wanted by all. She did not work outside of the home but was an excellent furniture upholsterer for years.
Her family was very important to her. Her guidance, kindness, humor and smile will be missed by all including 21 grandchildren, 38 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren.

Condolences for Lucille Cox
I am truly sorry for you loss. I did not have the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Cox, but I am a friend and co worker of Mrs. Barbara Gelbart. If she was anything like Barb, your family has truly lost a gem of a person. I pray for peace and understanding for your entire family. And pray for better days to come.
You adopted me and raised me from 11mo old. Thank You for the life you gave me….
I love you and miss you every day. Jehovah is watching and waiting to bring you and Dad back. I Love You!
