Obituary for Lucille Holub

Lucille (Gummow) Anderson Holub, age 91, died peacefully on September 13, 2018 at Woodland Terrace in Bridgman, Michigan.

Lucille (Lucy) was born July 13, 1927 in Rockford, IL to Lester A. Gummow and Helen (Gleasman) Gummow.

Lucy was a graduate from Hononegah High School, Class of 1945 and worked for many years at the renowned Wagon Wheel Resort in Rockton, IL. Lucy loved to explore the world with her husband Russell. She traveled all over the world having been on 52 cruises and visited more than 130 countries. It was on the Panama Canal cruise she met Russell Holub of Three Oaks, MI. They were married in October of 1987 and resided together over 30 years at the Holub farm. They continued to travel for many years together and some of Lucy’s most memorable trips with Russell were on the Russian Ice Breaker, an African Safari Trip, seeing the Taj Mahal in India, and of course the Panama Canal where they first met.
Lucy was a member of the Red Hat Society and loved photography. She enjoyed taking photos of her many trips and her extended family. After Lucy moved to Michigan, she continued to travel back “home” along with her husband Russell for every holiday, wedding, or other special event that her sister Josephine (Gummow) Shedd and her family were having. Lucy was a very kind, thoughtful and generous person who would always remember to send a birthday card, anniversary card, and a Christmas gift.

Lucy was previously married to the late State Representative Merle K. Anderson of Durand, IL., who passed away in 1981.

The family would like to thank the staff at Woodland Terrace and Caring Circle, St. Joseph, MI. for their care. Survivors include her husband Russell Holub (Three Oaks, MI), stepsons David (Ruth) Holub and Mark (Tami) Holub of Three Oaks, MI; a host of nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, -nephews, great grand-nieces, -nephews; and step grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents Lester and Helen Gummow, her sister Josephine (Gummow) Shedd, brother Albert Gummow, and her first husband Merle K. Anderson.
