Lucille Shelly Sperle celebrated her 100th birthday on March 25, 2017, with a family celebration at Woodstone Assisted Living and a potluck at Twin Falls Church in Idaho. She was born March 28, 1917, in Leedey, Okla., to Oscar and Bertha Jones.
Lucille loves people, and her life shows it. She was a literature evangelist and continued that spirit with a literature rack near her door at home so she never missed any opportunity to hand out tracts to visitors. She was also an aide/house mother at several assisted living facilities including Skyview, Heritage and Woodstone.
At church, Lucille taught kindergarten and has been an active greeter. To this day, Lucille still loves to greet and talk to people at church. Her warm and friendly smile makes them feel at ease and welcome. Lucille is a beautiful example as she shines for Jesus in her everyday life. Her family and friends have now had a special celebration for her 99th, 100th and 101st birthdays.
Her family includes her children, Gene of Twin Falls, Idaho; Ladonna, who has passed away; her husband, Gideon, who has also passed away; 6 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren.
