Eileen Lucille Lust, 99, of Bucyrus, died Sunday, April 25, 2021 at Carlisle Place.
She was born September 11, 1921 in Bucyrus to the late Charles H. and Esther E. (McGee) Heath and graduated from Bucyrus High School. On September 14, 1940, she married Lawrence E. Lust and they shared 62 years of marriage before his death in 2002.
Eileen and Lawrence moved into the home where he was born and she cared for their family as a homemaker and farm wife. She was not afraid of hard work and was a very resourceful lady. She tended to a rather large garden and cared for the animals on and around the farm. They rarely needed anything other than some basic items from the local store. She was a gifted seamstress and prepared some fantastic meals, including her cornbread and beans as well as her mom’s recipe for crumb cake.
Eileen was a longtime member of Scioto UMC where she was active in the Friendship Class. She and Lawrence served on Farm Bureau Council and she spent many years working for the Crawford County Board of Elections. She loved hearing how her grandchildren and great grandchildren were doing, and she was always there for her family when needed.
Eileen is survived by three children, Leonard (Sandra) Lust, Becky (Michael) Gribler and Paul (Judy) Lust; four grandchildren, Darcie (Rocco) D’Ascenzo, Derek (Eva) Gribler, Matthew Lust and Stephen (Erin) Lust; ten great grandchildren as well as many extended family members.
She was preceded in death by brothers, Charles, Wilson, Jay “Skip”, and Gerald Heath and sisters, Esther Colcord, Joan “Pat” Kennedy and Beverly Long.
Please join Eileen’s family at her graveside in Oakwood Cemetery on Monday, May 3 where her funeral will be held at 10:30 am with Pastor David A. Smithey officiating.
Donations can be made payable to Scioto UMC or to Kindred Hospice and will be accepted at the cemetery on the morning of services or through Wise Funeral Service. Memories are encouraged to be shared on her tribute page.
