Lucille Huether

Lucille Huether, age 90, Wall, S.D., died Friday morning, Dec. 8, 2017, at Meadowbrook Care Center in Rapid City.
Lucille Doughty was born Nov. 8, 1927, in Quinn, the youngest of five daughters born to Philip and Clara (Evenson) Doughty. 
She grew up on her parents’ ranch along Deep Creek in the Grindstone area. She attended rural school in the area, and then attended Quinn High School, graduating in 1945.
After graduation, she moved, along with her sister, Phyllis, to Everett, Wash., where they worked in the shipyards during WWII. After the war, she traveled to the East Coast to meet up with a young Navy veteran, Walter Huether.
Lucille was united in marriage to Walter April 20, 1946, in Elizabeth City, N.C. They returned to the Huether homestead where they operated the family ranch until moving into Wall in 1997. During that time, she worked as a billing clerk for West River Electric for over 30 years. Her husband Walter preceded her in death Feb. 9, 2005. Lucille continued to make her home in Wall until moving to Rapid City in 2013.
Lucille was a member of the First Lutheran Church in Wall, and served as Imlay Township clerk for a number of years. She enjoyed cooking, embroidery and playing cards. She always made sure there was enough food, so she prepared a bounty of food for every meal.
Survivors include her son, Wayne Huether and his wife, Marcia, Interior; one daughter, Sheryl Sether, Hot Springs; four grandchildren, Jackie Sawvell (Dale), Quinn, Stacey Fielder and Bart Fielder, Rapid City, Scott Huether (Tammy), Interior, and Shawn Sether, Lead; six great-grandchildren, J.C. and Carson Fielder, Jesse and Kyla Sawvell, and Cody and Dylan Huether; and a host of other relatives and friends.
In addition to her husband, Walter, Lucille was preceded in death by four sisters, Esther Doughty, Eva Forkner, Gertrude Wooden and Phyllis Reub.
Services were held Wednesday, Dec. 13, at the First Lutheran Church in Wall.
Interment was Wednesday, at Black Hills National Cemetery near Sturgis.
