Lucile married Francis “Butch” Polzean September 23, 1944 at St. Patrick’s Church, Fond du Lac.

She was employed at Citizens Loan (the Money Shop) for 37 years. Lucile was a die-hard Brewers fan. She loved spending time fishing with her husband.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband in 2001 and a brother, Donald Zahn in 2000.

Her only surviving relatives are cousins.
