Lucy Cisneros, a lifelong Douglas, Arizona resident, passed peacefully on November 24, 2022 in Tucson, Arizona. Lucy was born on August 29th, 1931 in Douglas, AZ. Lucy was a single mother that raised three children and worked as a clerk at J.C. Penney for many years prior to her retirement. She was a member of St. Luke’s Catholic Church when she resided in Douglas.
Lucy had many loving family and friends that will miss her very much. Lucy became disabled and unable to care for herself and spent her last days at Park Senior Villas at La Canada in Tucson where she was well taken care of by their wonderful caregivers and employees.
