Lucy graduated high school from Highland Park in 1956. Sometime between 1956 and 1960, she met the boy’s father, Johnny Clark. She and Johnny began to raise their family in 1961 having a total of 4 sons. Most of Lucy’s activities surrounded the boys. She played an avid role in Northwest Garland Little League helping the boys and their baseball activities. As well as, keeping the boys out of trouble as they were always up to know good.
In 1976, she and Johnny went their separate ways in life and soon after, she met and married Jerry Baker. Lucy and Jerry were married for 25 years living in Garland, TX until Jerry’s passing in 2002.
