Lucille Contant, a 10-year resident of Grass Valley, passed away Sept. 10. She was 88, living independently, loving life and doing her exercises when she took a Parkinson’s Disease-related fall.

She had lived in Chicago, Illinois, San Jose, Santa Cruz and Paradise, but she loved the sweetness and beauty of Grass Valley most of all.

Among her favorite people are her daughters Terri Stair and Marianne Coveney; her granddaughter, Amy Stair; her sons-in-law Roy Stair and John Coveney, and her beloved niece, Ann Riehle of Illinois.

Lucille’s intellect, practicality, grit, sense of humor, love and wisdom will forever enrich her loved ones.
