Lucille Marie Sheehan


Lucille was born to Paul Boynton and Jenny McFarland Boynton, at their home in Jay, N.Y. Lucille resided on the farm where she was born for the next 97 years of her life. She married her husband of 63 years, Irving Sheehan, in 1943. In her early years, Lucille worked at The Lake Placid Club, as well as Santa's Workshop. Later in life, she was a Librarian at The Ausable Forks Library. Her true passion was to take care of her loved ones, and the family homestead. Lucille was a lifetime member of The Jay Baptist Church, where she rarely missed a church service. She will be greatly missed by her church family. She was a member of the Keene Valley Garden Club, and enjoyed gardening at home. Lucille was an avid bridge player for all 98 years of her life, and played to win! A special thanks to all her bridge friends. Lucille is survived by her son, Kevin Sheehan, his wife Patti, and grandchildren, Ashley, Trista, and Trever, as well as great-grandson, Devonte. Lucille is also survived by her sister, Martha Theodorowicz, of Agawam, Mass., and her children, Paula, Dave, Peter, and Jennie.
A memorial service will be held at The Jay Baptist Church on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at 12 p.m., with a private burial. A special thanks to all that cared for her on her final days on earth.

I always enjoyed visiting with Lucille. She was a great woman and she will be remembered with a smile.

Boo was so many beautiful things in one little lady: warm, genuine, charismatic, nurturing, and always trying to feed or care for us whenever we visited! I loved her passion for Jesus and her boldness in sharing the gospel with anyone she could. When I think of her I think of ice cream, long conversations about everything, her cacti in the spare room (long before it was popular), the beautiful barns and green grass, the tree farm, how proudly she spoke of her grandkids, Fern Lake and tuna sandwiches, the pictures of family, her candies in a glass bowl, riding out to church as she zoomed past the cows, her bucket hat and driveway greetings, and how she always saw us out to our cars. She loved... our church and I’m convinced that if she lived in Mass. we would’ve seen her at many more services. Boo made us always feel welcome and comfortable, except when she wouldn’t sit down and rest for herself! She was an amazing great-aunt and even though we didn’t see each other very often she has left a remarkable imprint.Read more
