Tributes for

Feeney, Lucille

Lucille May Feeney
December 30, 1920 - August 2, 2014
Born in Vallejo, CA and raised in San Francisco, Lucille May Feeney joined her late husband, Thomas Edward Feeney, on Saturday August 2, 2014.
She was the youngest of the three children born to the late Daniel and Nellie, and was predeceased by siblings Marjorie and Daniel.
Lucille graduated with honors from Balboa High School in San Francisco, and then attended U.C. Berkeley. She graduated with distinction in 1942, majoring in History and excelling in Library Science. Indeed, after getting a job at the San Francisco Public Library, she met the love of her life Tom when he happened to visit the Bernal Heights branch where she worked.
Although love of learning was a lifelong passion, it was surpassed by her dedication to Tom and her children: Kathleen Teter (Harry), Sheila Bannan (Jerry), Thomas Feeney (Andrea), Teresa Dugan (Paul), John Feeney (Pamela), Michael Feeney (Juanita) and Patricia Gallagher (Jack).
Lucille enjoyed the adoration of 13 grandchildren: Elizabeth Teter, Brigid Sramaty (Ed), Barney Bannan (Monica), Joe and Claire Feeney, Kelly, Kaitlin, and Matthew Dugan, Kevin and Nolan Feeney, Jack, Nora and Molly Gallagher. She is also survived by three great-grandchildren, Emily and Tommy Sramaty and JB Bannan, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Lucille enjoyed good health and traveled the world with Tom. Closer to home, she and Tom golfed and loved to walk the fairways at Lakeside at the Olympic Club. For decades, she managed the Feeney Family summer pilgrimage to the Peninsula so that the children could escape the foggy San Francisco summers.
Lucille will be remembered for her grace, good humor, and warmth. She made everyone feel at home.
Friends and acquaintances are cordially invited to attend the funeral mass on Friday, August 8, 2014 at 10:00 AM at St. Cecilia Church, 2555 17th Avenue, San Francisco.
Lucille's family deeply appreciates the attentive care that she received from the staff at the California Convalescent Hospital in San Francisco.
In lieu of flowers, the family prefers donations to St. Anthony Foundation or the Friends of the Public Library, San Francisco.
Interment follows with a private ceremony at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma.
