Funeral services for Roseann Lucidi, 65, of Kempner, will be at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Crawford-Bowers Funeral Home in Copperas Cove, followed by a graveside service at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery.
Mrs. Lucidi died Jan. 30, 2018, at Scott & White Hospital. She was born Sept. 10, 1952, in Amityville, N.Y., to Anthony and Rose Marie Pesce.
Mrs. Lucidi grew up with two siblings, Lorraine and Anthony, whom she cherished deeply. She received her associate degree from Harriman College in 1972. In the same year, Mrs. Lucidi met her future husband, Joseph, at a coed mixer while he was attending West Point. They later married in 1974 and, as a proud Army wife, she traveled the United States and Germany with her husband.
In 1981, she moved to Texas, where she would reside the rest of her life. In December of that year, they became proud parents of their only child, Jennifer.
Mrs. Lucidi taught elementary school for many years, was the director at a local daycare, and then started a position at the Texas Workforce Commission, where she currently worked. In the 20 years she worked at TWC, she developed many special lifelong friendships.
One of Mrs. Lucidi’s biggest joys in life were her two grandchildren, Jacob and Madison. She had a special relationship with them both that will be forever treasured.
Mrs. Lucidi is survived by her husband, Joseph Lucidi; daughter, Jennifer Hyslop; son-in-law, Kevin Hyslop; grandchildren, Jacob and Madison; sister, Lorraine Pesce; brother, Anthony Pesce; sister-in-law, Sherry Pesce; and two nephews, Anthony and Axl.
Mrs. Lucidi was an avid shopper, enjoyed dancing to her favorite ’50s music, and always lived life to the fullest. She loved fashion, jewelry, her puppies, Starbucks, and coffee ice cream.
Her untimely death will forever leave us brokenhearted, but those who love her will always ensure her memory lives on.
Visitation will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Crawford Bowers Funeral Home in Copperas Cove, which is in charge of arrangements. The family invites you to leave a message or memory in her tribute at www.crawfordbowerscopperascove.com.
