Lucille (Lou) Frances Kieklak (nee Zinram) was born into this world on July 7, 1937 and entered eternal life on May 5, 2019.  Lucille was married to James on June 10, 1961.

She is survived by her husband of 57 years and three daughters, Nancy Baadsgaard (Timothy) Mary Lynn Yocum (Scott) and Carol Martin (David) with seven grandchildren, Christine (Ian), Rebecca (Corey), Mathew (Ana), Nick, Maria, Natalie, and David and a very special cousin, Lou Mack.

She was preceded in death by her son, Joseph (one day old), her father, Herbert and her mother, Gertrude (Creadon) and her siblings, Arlene, Imelda, and Robert.

Lou loved her family first, then sports, especially major league baseball and national league football.  Her special sport was golf.  She and Jim golfed every chance they had, including vacations to other areas.  She was a president of the Sand Creek Ladies Golf and in 1999 was the winner of the Sand Creek Ladies A Flight Gross Champion.

My condolences to Jim, Nancy and Tim, Christine, Rebecca and Corey, Carol and family, and Mary and family. I have known Lou for over 40 years and will always remember her kindness, generosity, and humor. Whenever I saw her, she was always smiling and always wanted to know how my kids were doing. She had great compassion and was truly a very caring lady. I think of her often.

So very sorry for your lose. Lou always had a smile and was so very fun to be around. Will never forget her story of high school graduation tickets. Lou made my mother's life happy, and for that I will forever be grateful. I hope that you all find comfort in each other. She was a great lady, and I am better for knowing her.
