Lucille Ann Stolark, 72, of Summerville, South Carolina passed away, Saturday, August 18, 2018. She was born on August 1, 1946 in Wilmington, Delaware to John and Marion (Acee) Gungui both preceded her in death from Clark Mills, NY and her husband Francis Stolark of Frankfork, NY.

Survivors include her children, Debbie (Ronald) Olney, Katie (Robert) Arrington, and Connie (Eric) McClanahan; She is also survived by her sister Connie (Kenny) Goodson of Clark Mills, NY. Lucille had several grandchildren who were her total heart. Michael (Shannon) Martin, Christian (Stephanie) Homrich, Haliegh (Justin) Andrews, Kelsey McClanahan and Andrew Joseph McClanahan, Nina (Gideon) Alexander and four great grandchildren; Jackson and Charlotte Alexander and Sterling Andrews and in early 2019 Baby Andrews. These babies were all her heart and each of you made her so very happy.

Anyone who met her were all asked to call her “Mam” and she was the center of our family, to say the least. Our Mam taught us all a few very important life lessons ; Love God, To always remember that is family is EVERYTHING ,To always say ” I love you” when you leave, because she knew all to well that tomorrow is never a guarantee.
Our Mam, also loved to cook with and for her family, she took on the work of documenting the families recipes for generations to come to share. Mam was raised with a belief to cook was to love, and she really loved her family, especially with sweet treats. Our Mam was indelible on every soul she met and loved to make people smile. No one ever left a conversation with her and wasn’t laughing, what a gift from God she was to this family and those who were blessed to met her.

Mam did a lot in this life for many, but raising her 3 daughters was by far the most important mission she had in this life. She taught her 3 girls to go and make their happiness and to always know and remember that we could do anything we set our minds to. Mam you taught us to sing show tunes loudly from the heart, to dance holding each other hands to anything with a beat, to squeeze hands hard 3 times and to find a way to laugh at the “Luckies” in life.

Mam had a final wish to be cremated and made into a ocean reef to celebrate her time with us, as well as have a family dinner together. At the dinner she requested to order dessert first and have white tulips on the table and light a white candle in memory of her love for all of us. Mam loved the water and wanted to be apart of life forever, so we are honoring Mam’s final wishes. Mam will be placed in the ocean during a service in April 2019. The family will have a private mass and celebrate her just as she requested.

So in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Jude’s as she loved this and donated monthly. To make a donation and honor her life! Please click here.
