Lucile Annabelle (Beard) Allardyce experienced a full and enjoyable life beginning with her loving family, consisting of three sisters and four brothers. She shared a special bond with her twin brother, Louis, who were classmates from the first grade and graduated together from Lamar Junior College in Beaumont.
She married her best friend and soul mate, Buford Allardyce, in 1940 at the age of 19. Buford, also an outdoorsman, enjoyed taking Lucile to the Red Horse Club on Village Creek and their home on Crystal Beach. Just two years later, Buford would join the Air Force to train as a pilot. Soon after, Lucile proudly accepted the secretarial position to the Surgeon of the Air Force, as he saw her education and passion to be an asset to the military. Once stationed in London during WWI, Buford spent much of his free time playing, and winning, in the game of craps, providing him the means to send home fine china and silver to his beautiful wife whom he adored. The couple, having dreamt of having a family of their own, later welcomed their greatest joys, Tom and John. Lucile shared a bond with her boys that continued to grow deeper as the years would pass. She enriched them with a love for the beauty and importance of life, and what one could make of it. Tom and John have both grown to be caring, gracious, and accomplished men because of her every day teachings.
Lucile's love for all children lead her to Austin Junior High, where she was the school secretary for many years. Lucile, being an active member of Calder Baptist Church dating back to 1954, helped nurture the babies in the nursery, taught children's classes and faithfully attended her own Sunday school class and Sunday services in the chapel.
The zenith of Lucile's enjoyment appeared with the birth of her two granddaughters, Heather and Whitney, to her son John and his wife Becky. The presence of these two angels afforded to Lucile the opportunity to put into practice her talents of cooking, sewing and playing her piano. Her love for and nurturing of her granddaughters provided a foundation which contributed immensely to their happy adult lives.
Interment will be at Forest lawn Memorial Park, Beaumont, Texas.
