Jeannette was born July 19, 1944, and passed away December 8, 2023, at the age of 79. She began her 32-year teaching career in Leesville but soon moved to Florien Elementary where she taught second grade and then traveled from Florien to Negreet teaching the gifted and talented class. During this time, she worked tirelessly to earn her Master’s Plus 30 degree in Education. After retiring from the school system, Jeannette worked at Walmart in Many for over 10 years. Jeannette liked to make silly jokes that kept her family laughing and was a fantastic cook. She would often create her own recipes, but her food was always delicious. Growing roses brought her joy, and she especially loved watching the birds gather at her bird feeder. When she was in bed fighting cancer watching the birds outside her window lifted her spirits. Jeannette was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who will be missed by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her son, Sidney Young Lucius Jr. and parents, Elbert Gass & Elma Lee Walker Gass.

Those left to cherish her memory are her husband of 54 years, 2 months, and 4 days, Sidney Young Lucius Sr.;

sons, Jason Emory Lucius of Florien, LA and Samuel Wilson Lucius and wife Joyce Weissbohn of Anacoco, LA;

daughter, Joan Claire Trepanier and husband Wayne of Fort Riley, KS;

grandchildren, Ethan Perkins and Sidney “Trey” Lucius III;

brother, Thomas Gass Sr. of Pasadena, TX;

and sister-in-law, Claire Thompson of Florien, LA.
