Lucy I. Lasek
Lucy I. Lasek, 96, a resident of Oviedo, FL but lived the majority of her life in Ft. Myers, FL, passed away Tuesday, November 29, 2016 in Winter Park, FL. She was born September 30, 1920 in Fort Myers, FL to Rocco and Antoinette Pavese, now deceased.
Lucy, Grandma, Nana or Aunt Bubs, no matter how you knew her, you knew that you were in the midst of greatness when you were in her company. A true matriarch of a huge Italian family, one that she cherished beyond measure. She was a registered nurse for over 50 years and that caring nature filled her life in every way. She was the first one there when someone needed her and never complained. She spoke ill of no one, always seeing the good in people. Her smile brightened up the darkest of rooms. She loved being surrounded by her family, beaming with joy at each new member that joined our loud bunch. She was adored by all that knew her and gave freely of her time to anyone she met. She lived for college football on Saturdays, cheering on her beloved Notre Dame Fighting Irish whether they had a winning season or not. Her spirit was boundless and her faith was never shaken even during the roughest of times. Lucy showed everyone what it meant to be strong willed but also kind hearted. She will be missed by all of us and will never be forgotten.
She was preceded in death by her daughter, Jacqueline Wagnor and son-in-law, Steve Wagnor. She is survived by her grandchildren, Shannon Goodblood (Cory) of Oviedo, FL, Jennifer Whatley (Gary) of Pt. Charlotte, FL and Jamie Wagnor of Pt. Charlotte and her beloved great-grandchildren, Nicholas, Angel, Brandon, Caleb, Sarah and Cody as well as two sisters, Amelia Castenir of Elizabethtown, KY and Ann Palmer of Ft. Myers, FL and countless nephews and nieces.
