The Rev. Larry Kastens officiated. Organist was Janet Hipple, and Ann Nelson was soloist. Pallbearers were Lucille's nieces and nephews. Interment was in Beardsley Community Cemetery at Beardsley. Annie "Lucille" Palmer was born Nov. 1, 1902 to Schyler and Rachel (Jessup) Palmer at Ocheyedan, IA. At the age of one she moved with her family to the Clinton-Beardsley area. Lucille attended Beardsley Public Schools and then took nurses training at Graceville and Anchor Hospital in Minneapolis, where she graduated in 1930. She worked as a nurse at Sisseton, SD; Glenwood, and approximately 30 years at the Ortonville Hospital. She retired in 1972. Moving to Cambridge in 1990, she lived at the Riverwood Village for six years before moving to the Grandview Christian Home. Luciile passed away on Saturday evening, Sept. 26, 1998, having reached the age of 95 years, 10 months, and 25 days. Lucille enjoyed cooking, traveling, church activities, reading, making new friends, taking recreational day trips and attending family gatherings. She was a great "people watcher," and could spend many hours just "observing life." Many little things in life might have gone unnoticed had it not been for Lucille's quiet observation. She will be remembered by those close to her for her dedication to her family, her profession and to her Savior. Survivors include her sister-in-law, Marion Jane Cardweli of Beardsley; four nieces, Arlys (John) Brown of Coeur D'alene, ID, Eva Lou (Larry) Stickland of Watertown, SD, Patricia (Gary) Cardwell of Clinton and Sandra Arndt of Ortonville; five nephews, Donald (Mary) Palmer of Greenwood, WI, Hazen "Red" (Marlys) Palmer of Cambridge, Chester Palmer of Las Vegas, NV, Dean (Carol) Palmer of Barnesville, and Darryll (Beth) Palmer of Brooklyn Park; a cousin, George (Geri) York of Oak Dale; 28 great nieces and nephews; and 37 great great nieces and nephews. Annie was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Lois; three brothers, Austin, Harvey, and Harold; and a great nephew, Eddie Palmer.
