May 25, 1926 – March 23, 2020


Lucille was a camper in the 1950s. She earned a bachelor’s degree at the University of Illinois. Her MA and PhD were earned at the University of Iowa. Lu taught at Beloit College, University of Iowa, Austin MN high school, and retired from PSU College of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation as Professor Emerita after twenty six years of teaching. Her involvement in the development of women’s intercollegiate sport was a highlight of her career. Lu also loved the diversity of the world in which she lived. Travels were a learning experience and the Delaware shore a summer oasis.

Those Who Have Taken Their Last Portage: Clearwater Camp works to remember and honor those alumnae who have passed away. We learn about alumnae through the Clearwater network of family and friends, who may let us know or make gifts in their memories. For these tributes, we use materials including their published obituaries and other remembrances from family and friends. Please contact Clearwater if there is an alumna you would like remembered by the camp community.
