The former Lucille Mae Conrad was born May 16, 1927, on the family farm in rural Alhambra. She married Lester Korsmeyer on May 14, 1949, in Alhambra. He died June 24, 2008. She earned a bachelor's degree in education from Greenville College in 1970. She was a teacher for the Highland Community Schools for 20 years, retiring in 1983.

Lucille and her husband were active members of Salem UCC in Alhambra, and then Evangelical UCC in Highland. She moved to the Quad Cities in 2009, and became a member of First Congregational Church.

She was a strong supporter of veterans, and was very proud of her husband's service in the U.S. Air Force. She was a member of the VFW and the American Legion Auxiliaries in Highland and Alhambra. She also was a 60-plus year member of the Alhambra Morning Glories 4-H Club in Madison County, earning the 4-H Hall of Fame Award in 2005.

She enjoyed quilting and crocheting, gardening, and baking cookies. Above all else, family was the most important thing to Lucille. Her pride and joy were her great-grandsons, whom she called "the boys".

Lucille is survived by a son and daughter-in-law, Lanier Korsmeyer and Janet Blair of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin; a daughter and son-in-law, Leanne and Steven Satterthwaite of Coal Valley, Illinois; grandchildren, Randall and Mary Satterthwaite of Denver, Iowa, Kristen and Jon Canfield of Roscoe, Illinois, and Michael and Tara Korsmeyer of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and "the boys", Nick and Zack Satterthwaite, and Graham, Jason and Levi Canfield. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Lester; and siblings, John Conrad, Jr. and Melvin Conrad, Fern Suhre Schroeder, and Aletha Uhe.
