Lucie graduated from the convent in Duck Lake in 1954. She attended Teachers College (L’Ecole Normale) in Saskatoon. She then taught one year in Titanic and then went to teach in Butte St. Pierre. This is where she met the Love of her life – Louis de Montarnal. This was a quick romance. They met in September, engaged at Christmas and married Easter Monday, April 22, 1957. They lived on the homestead and farmed until 1966. They then moved to Debden with 5 children. One more was added to this union. Louis and Lucie farmed until 1977 and moved into town in 1995.

Lucie was awarded the Bravo Benevoles in 2008 from Le Conseil de la Saskatchewan. Lucie was active in her community. Her francophone language and culture were the root of her volunteerism. She volunteered on organizing committee for winter carnivals, centennial celebrations, school reunions and parish missions. Lucie was recognized for her dedication and commitment to the Literacy Volunteer Program and her volunteer contributions to Saskatchewan Penitentiary.
Lucie enjoyed baking, she tried many new recipes on her family and most times were hits. She also liked entertaining. She enjoyed doing all kinds of crafts, she completed many plastic canvas projects.
Lucie loved drama, doing skits, and even writing some of her own. She always had to plug in a joke (always appropriate for the occasion).
Lucie bowled and was quite competitive, even top scorer at one time.
