Lucille Moffitt

Lucille Rose Moffitt, 90, Minot, died Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at the Villa Maria Nursing Home in Fargo.

Lucille was born February 21, 1928 at Minot, North Dakota the daughter of Frank and Theresa (Podojil) Busek. She was raised and educated in Minot and graduated from Minot High School in 1947. During her younger years, she worked for Dr. Dormant, later as a lunch cook at the Trinity business college and finally at Erik Ramstad Jr High School in the cafeteria as a lunch clerk.

Lucille was united in marriage to Rayman Moffitt on March 30, 1954 in Minot. They made their home on a farm in McKinley Township near Minot. They farmed there throughout the years, where they raised grains and cattle. Rayman died November 16, 2006. Lucille continued to live on the family farm until 2010 when she moved into Minot.   

Lucille was a longtime member of First Presbyterian Church, which later became Cornerstone Presbyterian Church, Minot, where she served the church in a number of capacities, along with the McKinley Homemakers Club, and Bohemian Lodge.

Lucille was an excellent cook and her family loved her cinnamon buns, peppernuts, kolaches, rohlikys, and her famous banana cake to which her brothers fought over. Lucille liked to sew, cross stich, embroider and make quilts. She loved to grow flowers winning many ribbons at the ND State Fair. Lucille kept busy reading, doing puzzles, crossword puzzles, played whist and loved to play skipbo especially with her Grandkids. Lucille and Rayman loved to travel, jumping in the Oldsmobile with most of their trips taking them to Ohio and Oregon. One of their last trip together was for their 50th anniversary to Hawaii. Lucille will always be remembered by her family for her wit and humor, many times asking questions about something with a sly smile at the end of the conversation.

MessageHow sorry to see this! Lucille and Rayman were the nicest neighbors when we lived in the white house on their land. It was so nice to keep in touch with them after we moved. They always had a kind word and deed for all. I can hear both of their laughs so clearly even today. All the card playing over the years - including the rounds of Skipbo. The wine sprayed all over the kitchen ceiling - so many fun memories. I also learned about electric fences from them. : ) Take care and know that we have them in our memories, too, and always will. ~Melanie, Diane, and Janet~
