Vera Lucille Heckman, better known as Lucy was born September 17, 1920, to Ira and Vera (Lower) Sheeder,  passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on November 25, 2019, at the age of 99 years.

Lucy was a member of the Methodist Church and worked at the Guthrie Center livestock auction for 37 years.

Lucy loved bowling, playing cards, gambling, being a jokester, and having fun, but most of all she cherished her friends and family.

Lucy is survived by sons Delmar (Marion) Reeves, Dennis (Colleen) Reeves, stepdaughters Cheryl (Mark) Pappadacus and Nancy Meyer. Grandchildren, Daron (Pam) Reeves, Terri (Mike) Peterson, Deb (Daryl deceased) Reeves, Deb Hurt, Brooke Riley, Paige Pappadacus, eight great-grandchildren, six and a half great-great-grandchildren, one brother Delbert (Ilene) Sheeder, and too many others to mention.
Lucy was preceded in death by her parents, five brothers and sisters, husbands Blane Reeves, Virgil Benton, and Oscar Heckman, one grandson Daryl, and one great-great-grandson Jennings.

She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
