She was born on July 2, 1928, in Lewistown to the late Cloyd P. and Rae (Feese) Ziegler. She was preceded in death by three brothers, John Wesley Ziegler, Dean F. Ziegler, and R. Lee Ziegler and a daughter, Pati Kaufman.
Lucille was a retired elementary school teacher from the Mifflin County School District. She was an active member of Paxton United Methodist Church, Harrisburg, the Lewistown Chapter of OES, and a life member of the Pennsylvania Scholastic Association of Retirees. Lucille was a longtime volunteer with Meals on Wheels and the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and was a strong supporter of Bethesda Mission. Lucille always trusted her strong Christian faith to guide her through her long and prosperous life. Her love of God was reflected by the love and devotion that she extended to her family. Lucille’s kindness and generosity to her family and to others was a living testament of her unwavering faith and values.
Lucille was the widow of James E. McClain, Sr., (1976), and Sherwood W. Doughman (2006). She often joyfully proclaimed that her life was blessed by her marriages to those two wonderful husbands. The years that she devoted to being a wife and mother provided her with personal fulfillment and appreciation for how good life can be.

Heycock and her husband John L. of York Haven, daughter Barbara Minchhoff and her husband Fred of Millersburg, daughter-in-law Sharon Kaufman of Pittsburgh, and Barry Foltz and his wife Kris of Wisconsin.
