Riebe Waters, 74, of The Villages in Florida, formerly of Griffith, passed
away on January 19, 2017.
She was born July
15, 1942, in Racine, Wisconsin.
She is survived by
her loving husband of 55 years, Richard Waters. Also surviving her are
children, Jim (Leslee) Waters of Valparaiso, Dianna (Ray) Kubik of Phoenix,
AZ, and Lisa (Frank) Kusbel of Valparaiso.
She is preceded in

grandchildren, Chris (Alyssa) Waters, Michelle Kubik, Rebecca Kubik,
Brittany Kubik, Deborah Kubik, Kathleen Kubik, Matthew Kusbel, Lauren Kusbel,

Lucy was a 50-year
resident of Griffith and was often seen driving the streets in her red Trans
Am. When retiring to The Villages she would always enjoy a round of golf and
often attended the entertainment of “The Square”. She often loved the
challenge of playing the marble game with her beloved family. Lucille was
such an animal lover that when posed with the challenge of adopting a duck
she embraced it, so the story of “Quacker” will always be remembered. She
also spent many family vacations enjoying having her family surround her.
Lucy had a heart of gold and her kindness and love should be a lasting
lesson for us all.
