Celebration of life services will be at 10 a.m. Saturday in Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors Ivy Chapel, 2800 Paramount Blvd.
Lucile, aka "Momsie," "Mama Lou," "Lucy," and "CG," was born Feb. 8, 1919, in Texhoma, Okla., to Exie and Harvey Tiff Thomason and died peacefully in her sleep, with her lipstick on. She and her brother, Jerry Thomason, were raised in Texhoma, where they and their parents spent much time in the family business, Thomason Brothers Dry Goods Store.
She graduated from Texhoma High School with the Class of 1936
Lucile and John Carl Bergner were married on Jan. 5, 1941, and raised five children in Stinnett, where they were involved in ranching, farming and other businesses. The Bergner family were United Methodist Church members. Lucile was a sought-after vocalist and the first woman to serve on the school board.
She was always taking care of others and devoted much time to the United Methodist Church, Meals on Wheels, Suicide Prevention Crisis Hotline and Crown of Texas Hospice. One of her favorite things to do was to prepare a colorful, healthy lunch for one of her many friends and visit about meaningful feelings, thoughts and ideas.
Her granddaughter, Marci, describes Lucile as a friend and mentor to many of all ages, she was nonjudgmental and accepting of others, appreciative of the simple things in life, a practical and inquisitive thinker, and she was poised and gracious until her last breath.
She was preceded in death by her husband, John, and their three sons, Charles, James and Bill Bergner.
She is survived by and was lovingly cared for by two daughters, Betty Womble of Spearman and Scout Bergner-Deese of Dallas. Lucile's extended family includes Levi Robinson of Weatherford, Okla., and O.K. and Sue Starks of The Woodlands. Survivors also include her husband, Roy Oakley, whom she married on Sept., 21, 1973; four grandchildren, Sheli Johnson of Grapevine, Robin Dye of Spring, Carson Womble of Spearman and Marci Barnes of Dallas. She was also blessed with eight great-grandchildren, Jordyn and Jake Johnson, Dillon and Darbi Dye, Wyatt and Tatum Womble and Bailey and Abigail Barnes.
The family suggests memorials be to Hospice Care of the Southwest, 1301 S. Coulter, Suite 404, Amarillo, TX 79106.
