Marilyn (Hucke) Lucas (1943-2023)
Marilyn peacefully departed this world on September 2, 2023. She was born on April 14, 1943 in Farmingdale, NY to Herbert Hucke and Teresa Carbone. She spent many happy childhood years growing up with her sister Doreen and cousin Dottie, and numerous cousins, aunts and uncles.
Marilyn faced many adversities during her life, but faced them with strength and tenacity. Due to these adversities, she developed a strong personality, but was quick to forgive and forget.
Early on she worked as a nurse and later as a hairdresser; but her true passion and talent was art and painting. She loved nothing more to spend hours in front of her easel painting beautiful things. She was an avid reader and loved nothing more to learn about the world and different people. Due to her lifelong pursuit of knowledge, including other cultures, she created a colorful and eclectic personality.
She leaves behind her 2 sons, Barry (Suzanne) Reil and Jeffrey (Marilyn) Lucas; along with her granddaughter Zoe Lucas; bonus grandchildren, Elizabeth and Christopher Beiderwell; younger sister Doreen Benze; nieces April Alberti, BethAnn Barefoot as well as numerous extended family members.
