Waterford- Lucille G. (Lucy) Lawrence age 84, died peacefully on November 10, 2019 surrounded by her loving family. She is survived by the love of her
life, her husband of 63 years, Etienne C. (CHARLIE) Lawrence.
Lucy was born on February 18, 1935 in Grand Case, St. Martin, where
she spent her childhood enjoying the sun, the sea, and the beauty of
the island. She came to the United States in 1955, and returned to marry Etienne
in St. Martin on December 1, 1956. She was very proud when the two
of them became American citizens in 1965. Lucy was a seamstress for
many years at Hendel’s Mfg. in New London. She was a wonderful mother,
grandmother, and great-grandmother. She loved cooking for her family,
hosting gatherings and picnics, and playing cards. Most of all, she
loved God and enjoyed listening to and singing hymns. Everyone who
knew her will miss her and her many signature dishes, which were
always prepared with love.

Besides her husband Lucy is survived by her three daughters, Betty
(Alexandre) Antipoff, Ann (Matthew) Condon, and Donna (Charles)
Stroneski, all of Waterford. She leaves behind seven grandchildren,
Timothy (Rachel) Condon, Gregory (Jenna) Antipoff, and Nicholas
(Michelle) Condon all of Waterford; Tiffany Antipoff (Gavin) Wentworth of
Bloomfield; Kristina Antipoff (Benjamin) Brenners of San Diego, CA;
and Michael Stroneski and Matthew Stroneski, of Waterford. She is also
survived by her siblings, Rita Mingo and Steven Laurence of East Lyme
and Joseph Laurence of St. Martin. She also leaves behind nine
great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and blessed with many amazing family and friends from St. Martin too numerous to mention. She was predeceased
by her parents.
