Obituary for Lucille Choate

Lucille Choate, 91, of East Peoria, passed away at 12:15 pm on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at her daughter’s home after a long battle with ovarian cancer.

Lucille was born in Cedar Hill, TN to Sam and Alma Anderson on Nov. 14, 1928. She was raised with her 5 siblings. She married Robert Choate on Dec. 6, 1947. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, two brothers, one sister and one grandson.

She is survived by one daughter, Sherry (Mike) Potter and one son, Robert Jr. (Janet) Choate, both of East Peoria. In addition, she was the proud “MEMA” to 5 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren.

Lucille was employed by Thompson’s Food Basket in Bartonville, retiring in 1983. She was a devout Christian and attended the Church of Christ in Washington, IL. Her passion was being “MEMA” to all her grandchildren.

She loved to go out to breakfast, which was her favorite meal, and going to Absolute Hair to get her hair styled while chatting with all her friends there.

As per Lucille’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral service. A private graveside service will be held with immediate family at Fondulac Cemetery in East Peoria, IL.

Memorials may be made to the Washington Church of Christ, 430 N. Wilmor Rd. Washington, IL 61571.
