Lucille Rose Meyer was born September 18, 1921, on the farm that was acquired during the Land run of Oklahoma, and was delivered to our Lord on September 17, 2023, just 24 hours shy of 102 years on Earth.

Lucille was the youngest of two children, herself and her sister, Carlene Drusilla, born to Marie Florence (Millen) and Henry Meyer.

She married John Edward Bohr (Eddie), on January 11, 1940, and to their union were born two children, William Henry Bohr (Willie) September 3, 1943, and Cheryl Ann Bohr, January 4th, 1955. Lucille and Eddie farmed the Harman place in the red hills southwest of Omega, southeast of Watonga, for decades until the tornado of 1967 destroyed their home. They then moved to the Home place by Greenfield. She enjoyed farming with Eddie and making plaster nick- knacks, and ceramics.

Lucille and Eddie attended the Pentecostal-Miracle Church for many decades, in Watonga, with Pastor Goldie Dunn. She and Eddie were baptized 1959, in the Canadian River on Clifford Landreth’s farm. She loved her cats, Tuite Bell, Gert, Huckleberry and Little Lucy. Lucille met King Antonelli and married him in 1980, moving to Mustang, Oklahoma. Lucille later divorced and returned, in 1983, to live in Watonga. After moving back, she opened the LuCher’s women’s dress shop in Watonga, 1984, then retired in December 2006.

Dale Awtrey, a former high school boyfriend, of Greenfield, moved back to Watonga from California, and they remained partners until Dales’ passing. She enjoyed her grandson, Ruff’s company, who lived next door to her home. Cheryl and Lucille did everything together; enjoying life. Lucille ran the cash register at the End O’Main restaurant for over 20 years; she loved visiting with the customers and their children, to whom she always gave a lollipop. She went to many catering events, the largest of them being an OEC event with 8,000 people in attendance, where they served 32,000 cookies!

Lucille was blessed with many friends who visited and called her every week; Wilma and Willie Cruts grew their garden in Lucille’s backyard for many years. Nephews and Nieces would visit Lucille about the family history on the Bohr side. She always looked forward to visits from nephews Duke Pendergraft of Texas and Johnnie France of Watonga, as well as Janice and Joann Pendergraft; and many others.

Lucille resided at the Corn Heritage Rehab Facility for five years, until her passing. She truly lived a full life, filled with joyful times, enjoying family, friends, and her cats.

She was preceded in death by her father, Henry Meyer, on August 10, 1956, her mother, Marie Meyer, on May 23, 1978, her husband, Eddie, on November 14, 1979, her son, Willie Bohr, on February 18, 1999, and one sister, Carlene, on October 16, 2011.

She is survived by her daughter, Cheryl Ann and her husband, Jerry Steven (Steve) House, one grandson, Steven Ruff House, great-grandson Hunter House, as well as various nieces and nephews, their families and friends.
