She was born July 20, 1927, in East Bonne Terre, Missouri. Lucille was married to Bill Frazee on June 7, 1947, at Bee Ridge Methodist Church, near Edina, Missouri. Her parents were Otto John and Minnie Marie (Duschl) Kirschner, who preceded her in death. Lucille was also preceded in death by husband Bill; two sisters Josephine Kirschner and Pauline (Kirschner) Glasener; two brothers John Kirschner and Robert Kirschner; one nephew Jim Hunolt; one niece Barbara Joann Estes; great-granddaughter and great grandson, Persophone and Pierce McFarland.

Lucille graduated High School from Anna-Jonesboro Community High School in Jonesboro, IL in May 1946. Through a chance meeting of Lucille’s soldier brother John and another soldier, Bill Frazee, Lucille began a pen pal relationship which ended in a wedding June 7, 1947. It was a marriage that lasted 61 years.
She was a former member of Bee Ridge and Edina United Methodist Churches, and a member of Smithton UMC.
Lucille devoted her life to her God, her husband, her family, her Albert (Pujols) and beloved St. Louis Cardinals, her grandkids and great grandkids, and their activities. She was a fixture at Knox County Eagles games during her children’s growing up years, and Smithton Tiger games during her time living in Smithton, MO. Lucille was an avid Karen Kingsbury reader and loved a good Hallmark movie (is there a bad one?). She supported several Christian organizations by adopting children from their childhood into their adulthood.
Lucille, Mom, Grandma, GG, your compassion and unconditional love for others has been evident all the way down through your great grandkids. We have all experienced, felt, witnessed, and observed what a life serving God and loving others looks like. You have loved us all well and we will be honored to continue your legacy.
