Lucile Katie Robertson, born October 28, 1920 in Whiteside, Tn., died on January 7, 2013 at a local hospital.

She was known as “Granny Lucy” to everyone she met at her grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s softball, baseball, football and wrestling events.  Referees for these events appreciated her insight even when they threatened to expel her from the game.

Granny Lucy loved her family, friends, the Atlanta Braves, “live” wrestling and the National Enquirer.

She raised three daughters as a single parent and worked many long hours to provide for them. She taught them the meaning of family, hard work, perseverance, fairness, humor and most of all right from wrong.

She was preceded in death by Sheila Higgins, her middle child; parents, Oscar and Bessie Bailey; brothers, Harry, John, Fred, Jimmy and Donald Bailey; sisters, Peggy and Elizabeth Bailey, Betty Headrick and Mildred Synder.

She is survived by her daughters, Teressa (Silas) Fletcher, Dayton, Tn., and Pam (Peter) Duffy, Chattanooga; grandchildren, Traci (Tom) Smelas, Shane (Cheryl) Fletcher, Shannon (Michael) Faires, T.J. Higgins, Jim (Staci) Higgins, Chattanooga, and Zollie (Tate) Cantrell, Knoxville; 12 great-grandchildren.  

A special thanks to Billie Varnes for the love and help she provided over the years.

The family will receive friends from 1-3 p.m. on Jan. 9, at Chattanooga Funeral Home North Chapel. Graveside services will be at 3 p.m. in the Chapel of Devotion at Hamilton Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Lucile’s memory to a charity of choice.

Arrangements are by Chattanooga Funeral Home Crematory and Florist, North Chapel, 5401 Highway 153, Hixson, Tn. 37343.
