Lucille B. Cardoza/Draney/Caine

The cutest, sweetest, most delightful lady of old Tahoe passed away on March 8, 2007 at the age of 85.

Lucille B. Cardoza/Draney/Caine moved to North Tahoe with her husband V.W. “Zero” Draney in 1945. They were pioneers in developing North Lake Tahoe.

“Lucy” was in domestic work and care giving. She took care of our old people and our young people, our cats and our dogs, our houses and our yards. Her main concern in life was to make sure that everyone had enough fun. She never met an enemy and she was truly loved.

She is survived by two daughters, five grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, as well as many close relatives and dear friends.

There will be a celebration of her life on Sunday, Aug. 19, 2007 at 2 p.m. in the “Ramada” Pavilion, North Tahoe Public Utility District Regional Park, 875 National Ave., Tahoe Vista.

Look for the red balloons to guide you (there is a $3 per car fee for admission to the park; someone in a big sombrero will be at the pay gate with a pile of dollar bills from 1:30 to 1:55 p.m.). Sandwiches, salads, and desert will be provided at about 4 p.m. Please bring beverage and RSVP to Linda Draney Gorelangton by phoning (775) 747-4409.
