Lucile Cleary

January 16, 1910 — June 19, 2014

Longtime Rawlins resident, Lucile Marie Beauseigneur Cleary, 104, passed away on June 19, 2014, at Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation in Rawlins. Lucile was born January 16, 1910, in Dixon, Illinois, the daughter of Julius and Mary (Clarity) Beauseigneur. At the age of 7, Lucile moved to York, Nebraska with her family. She resided at the dormitory of the Ursuline Catholic Convent, where she received her education. Lucile came to Rawlins in 1939 to help take care of a friend's children, thus beginning her life in Rawlins. In 1940, she went to work as a cook at the old Carbon County Memorial Hospital and was employed there for seven years. It was at this time that Lucile met and married the special man in her life, Roland Cleary. On May 7, 1946, they married and were together until his passing 24 years later. Lucile went to work as a cook at St. Joseph's Catholic School upon their opening and until they closed in 1985. She then went on to volunteer her time cooking and serving at the Senior Center, which she enjoyed. Lucile was a member of St Joseph's Catholic Church and faithfully attended early Mass and Sunday Mass as long as she was able. She was active in the St Joseph's Altar and Rosary Society, was President of St Mary's Circle for many years, and was active in the Lady Trainman and Drill Team. She was a past Sweetheart Queen at the South Central Rehabilitation Center. Lucile loved working in her yard with her flowers and gardening. She enjoyed playing cards and liked to walk. Her greatest passion was cooking and entertaining, and her specialty was fried chicken. Lucile's favorite charity was St Joseph's Children Orphanage in Torrington. Lucile is survived by one nephew, Ed and Janice Cleary of Cheyenne, WY; six nieces, Regina and Clarence Applegate of Helena, MT, Sharon Groh of Walnut Creek, CA, Dorothy Moore of Lawrence, KS, Dorthy and Ottie Waginkecht of Milledgeville, IL, Betty Ann and Glen Godberry of Genesea, IL and Linda and Mark Robnovitz of Deerfield, IL; six cousins, Bill Sintek of Powell, WY, Jack and Dorothy Sintek of Saratoga, WY, Don Sintek of Loyalton, CA, Margerie and Huey Crouse of Escabedo, CA, Patty and J.D.
