Lucy and Ed celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary this June. A graduate of Kutztown State U in Eastern PA, Lucy moved to Chicago with a friend who worked for the Lutheran church to teach, and met Ed in Illinois when he was a long-distance truck driver. Ed is a life-long Cleveland resident. Lucy joined Advent soon after she moved to their Richmond Road home (they have since moved to Seven Hills), but Ed was in leadership at the First Hungarian Reformed (Walton Hills), so they shared churches. While his leadership positions have now ended, you'll find him still participating in the egg-noodle making there each week.
Ed and Lucy have 6 adult grandkids. Lucy's brother lives in the Lehigh Valley of PA with his 4 children and their families.
Lucy taught math in the Warrensville schools, completed physician assistant trainging, then did some mental health counseling before teaching again, while Ed worked mostly in truck driving and transportation.
Lucy's hobbies include travel, reading, and music (they both frequent the free concerts at Baldwin Wallace). Ed's main hobby is coin collecting (he is quite the expert and has helped many a friend understand the value of those bags of coins left by ancestors!). Lucy has served on the Fellowship Committee since Pastor May. You might know her from our annual Bunco night, or as the "Cake Walk Lady" at the congregational picnics. Lucy is a pianist and member of adult choir and bell choir, and currently serves on the Word & Sacrament Board.
Ed and Lucy say they appreciate the fellowship and Christian family at Advent, and that it is well worth the drive across 480. to experience their faith within this Christian church family.
There's a place for YOU here, we do better together!
