1921 – 2015 We quietly mourn the passing of our Mom at Leamington Hospital on March 1, 2015 surrounded by her family. Lucille was born in Romney Township on March 12, 1921 to Parents, Perth and Norah (Toomer) Heatherington. Growing up in Wheatley, she attended school, participated in track and field and played softball. On March 28, 1942 she married the love of her life Jim Declerck, who predeceased her in 1986. They raised a family of five, Barbara Hazael (Robert 2014), Pat Cameron (Murray), Jean Dobson (Gerry), Dennis (Carla), and Jeff (Tracey). She was the Cookie Grandma to her grandchildren, David (2001), Eric, Michael, Kathy (2009), Mindy, Kristen, Greg, Patty, Julie, Greg, Jim, Jennifer, Jason, Vanessa, Chantel, and Justin. Great Grandchildren, Erin, Zach, Lola, Cameron, Bronwyn, Noah, Piper, Kaden, Kyan, Dallen, Amanda, Haily, Ethan, Abigail, Andrew, Lucy, and Emily. Great Great Grandma to Owen and Olivia. Affectionately known as Dee-Dee to her Sisters, Betty Setterington (late Wilfred), Mavis Rutter (Allen) and late brother Russell. Lucille is also survived by her sister-in-law Fay Heatherington. Along with all the cookies she baked she managed to find time to knit hats and mitts each year for the RBC Christmas tree and followed the Detroit Tigers. For the last ten and half years Mom has called Royal Oak, Kingsville her home. Always positive she said that if she had not had her stroke she would not have met so many wonderful people.
