Lucille Josephine Theodore, 85, of Fairfield Glade, passed away peacefully at Good Samaritan Society in Fairfield Glade on Jan. 13, 2018.
She was born March 12, 1932, and raised in Detroit, MI, as Lucille Josephine Sikorski but most commonly went by "Lu." While attending Commerce High School in Detroit, Lu met her life-long love and future husband, Chris Theodore. They married at Queen of Apostles Catholic Church in Hamtramck, MI, Feb. 3, 1951. Together they raised a loving family while residing in Garden City, Westland and Canton, MI, and eventually retired to Fairfield Glade.
Lu was a business and English teacher at Roosevelt High School in Wyandotte, MI, and Kennedy High School in Taylor, MI. She enjoyed designing and creating dry-floral arrangements and started her own small business doing the same. Lu's greatest love in life was her family.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Lucy Sikorski; father, Adam Sikorski; loving husband of 61 years, Chris Theodore; beloved daughter, Karen Carpenter (John); and brother, Don Sikorski.
She is survived by her sister, Del Sikorski Baker; sons, Toby Theodore (Kim) and Jeff Theodore (Karen); grandchildren, Lee Dreps (Katie), Erin Dreps (Ali), Kelsey, Eric, Cody, Luke and Shane; and great-grandson, Jensen.
