Born July 20, 1917 in Allentown, she was the daughter of the late Harry and Charlotte Nagle Norbeck. She resided in Lancaster with her husband of 61 years, the late John C. Groenendaal, who died in 2000.

In her early years, she worked as a fashion model in Philadelphia and then as a legal secretary. After her marriage, she was a homemaker and a church secretary. Lucille was a past president of Lancaster Christian Women's Club, Women's Christian Temperance Union, and American Businessman's Club Auxiliary. She also served as a Friendship Bible Study teacher, a guide at Wheatland, and volunteered as a Red Cross worker and at the Blind Association.
