Lucy Meisel

May 20, 1944 — October 22, 2023

Lucy Meisel of Louisville, Colorado found eternal life Sunday, October 22, 2023 at the age of 79 years. She was born May 20, 1944 in Saint Louis, Missouri to Robert and Jesse McLaughlin (Craig). Lucy was a loving wife to her husband Paul Meisel of 53 years and together they raised their two sons, Tim and Todd.

Lucy’s love for life was shown in many ways. There wasn’t an animal she didn’t like and if she could have adopted every dog or cat she would have.

She loved spending time outdoors swimming. In the summer, you could always find her at Memory Square Pool swimming laps. In fact, she swam so much one summer, the chemicals in the pool messed with the chemicals in her hair turning it light green.

Lucy worked for the Milwaukee Journal as a beat writer, before focusing on her real love of cooking. In 1973 Lucy and Paul moved to Aurora, Colorado. Along with raising her sons, she taught adult evening cooking classes and would try-out many recipes on her own family. In the mid 1990’s she realized her real dream of teaching kids and went back to school to become a teacher. She was a Home Economics teacher at Broomfield Heights Middle School before retiring in 2009. She thought of her students as her own kids and loved each and every one of them.

1960’s Rock & Roll was her favorite music, and she would often have the radio in the car at full blast singing along with the music.

She was a beloved mother of Tim (Christina) and Todd (Kelly) and a proud grandmother of Douglas, Daniel and Dakoda. She was the oldest of 3 children and loved her siblings, Molly, Susan (John), and many other relatives and friends. Lucy was preceded in death by her beloved husband Paul, and her parents.
