Lucille was born on August 19, 1921 in rural Granville, the daughter of Domnick and Petronella (Van Bergen) Penning. She was raised in the Granville area and received her education at St. Anthony's Catholic School in Hospers. She married
Edmund Bueltel on January 21, 1947 at Hospers. They farmed near Granville until retiring on the farm in the fall of 1982. Edmund died August 29, 1990. Lucille continued to live on the farm until she moved into Granville in 1998. In October 2009 she moved to Sioux City to be near her children.
She was a member of the St. Joseph Catholic Church, the church guild and Christian Mothers. In Sioux City she was a member of Immaculate Conception Parish. Lucille loved to quilt and did so until about a year ago. She loved to watch the birds outside her window-especially the humming birds as she said her morning prayers. She loved to color stamped designs to help her daughter, in making homemade cards. She enjoyed visiting with her son, Butch, on the phone catchinq up on his activities. She got a twinkle in her eye when she could win at cards, especially when playing one-on-one with her son-in-law, Paul. She loved to be teased by her granddaughter, Kristina, even letting her put neon green fingernail polish on her nails. She enjoyed being visited by her grandkids (Heather and Brad, Mick and Mark, Pat and Tanya) and her great-grandkids (Blake, Shelbie, Carter, Cole, Kendal, and Brayton) especially on Halloween. She enjoyed evening meals with the residents of The Pointe and the group of ladies on her table.

wife, Jim and Betsy Bueltel.
