Lucille Grace Stakes
Lucille “Lucy” Grace Stakes, age 94, passed away peacefully at Kindred Hearts Assisted Living Facility in Plymouth in the early morning hours of February 8th. She had been a resident at Kindred Hearts for the past year and formerly lived in her own apartment in Kiel. In her final days, Lucille was blessed to be visited and/or hear final goodbyes from her children and all of her grandchildren.
She was born on September 29, 1923 to the late Ralph and Grace (Stellmacher) Tubbs in Seymour, WI. Growing up she raised Chow-Chow dogs. She attended local grade schools and graduated in 1941 from West High School in Green Bay.
Lucille was engaged to a U.S. Army fighter pilot who unfortunately was killed on his first combat mission in Europe during the early months of WWII. On August 7, 1947 she married Hollis J. Stakes at the First Methodist Church in Green Bay, WI. She was a homemaker, volunteer and also sold Avon cosmetics. Her husband’s A&P Cheese Co. job transfer brought them to Plymouth in the late 1950’s.
Lucille was an avid mystery novel reader, enjoyed playing Bingo and Yahtzee and didn’t like to lose. She had a feisty spirit and spoke her mind. Growing up just a few blocks from Green Bay’s old City Stadium, she naturally became a passionate Packer fan. She was especially devoted to her middle daughter, Barbara, who suffered from bipolar disorder. They are now together in heaven.
In her later years Lucille was well-known for her unique style of polishing her own nails – one stripe down the center, and always wearing a black turtleneck and black slacks.
Lucille wasn’t very happy about losing her independence and having to leave her Kiel apartment and her friends: Twilite, Marcie, Monica and Darwin, to move to Kindred Hearts (due to health issues). Once during a visit to Plymouth by Twilite and Darwin, Lucille said: “I guess the only way I’m getting out of this place is to get married.” Darwin’s reply was: “Sorry, it looks like it’s time to go.”
Lucille was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her daughter Barbara (Dickman) (Lubach) Corrente; Barbara’s infant daughter, Jaclyn Lubach; her only sister, Ethel Skar, and her brother-in-law, Ray Skar.
Survivors include two daughters: Linda (Lee) Schneider of Plymouth, Lisa Stakes of Santa Fe, NM, ten grandchildren and six great grandchildren: Chris (Danielle) Artabasy (their children Kellen & Lilla) of Georgia; Quentin (Kalli) Webb of Florida; Clayton (Nicole) Webb of Florida; Rachel Webb (special friend Jay Wesson II) of Vermont; Tyler Lubach, Ryan Lubach and Nicholas Lubach all of Sheboygan County; Ethan Desangles of Santa Fe; Shelby (Craig) Schneider-Hoffart (their children Reese & Rileigh) of Texas; Scott (Robyn) Schneider (their children Sophie & Harry) of Plymouth; and one niece Carol (Gilbert) Venson of Kansas.
Lucille’s family would like to thank the entire staff at Kindred Hearts; the staff from Heartland Hospice Care; the staff at Aurora Palliative Care; and the family (especially Jon, Chris and Chuck Stellmacher) and friends who provided support over these challenging years when their mother was diagnosed with dementia and heart disease. Last year her cardiologist, Dr. Kuttickat, told her if she didn’t quit smoking “it’s goodbye Lucille.” So at age 93 she quit.
Following Lucille’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no services or visitation. Memorials would be appreciated to Kindred Hearts of Plymouth.
