Obituary: Luci Ann (Bedrick) Greenwood


12/15/1953 – 10/12/2017

Lucille “Luci” Ann Greenwood, 63, of Pilot Point died Thursday, Oct. 12 after a long battle with cancer. She passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family.  

Luci was born in Pilot Point, and attended high school in Denton.  She met her husband Terry in 1970 at Lewisville Lake.  They married in 1972 in Denton, Maryland when they lived in Delaware for Terry’s work.

Luci and Terry moved back to Texas. They soon settled in Lewisville with their daughter Jennifer. There, they joined St. Phillip’s Catholic Church and renewed their vows.  

In 1981, they moved to Pilot Point and grew their family, having two sons, David and James.  In Pilot Point, Luci became an active member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church.  She taught CCD at the church there for about 15 years, and served many years as a Eucharistic minister.

A highlight of Luci’s spiritual life was in 1988 when she traveled with family to Medjugorje (now in Bosnia and Herzegovina) on a pilgrimage to the site where the Virgin Mary appeared on Apparition Hill.

As a licensed vocational nurse, Luci spent 32 years caring for elderly patients in nursing homes.  Most of that time was spent in Gunter. She had to stop working in 2015 when she learned that she had cancer.

When she was able to, she loved to fish, garden and crochet.  In her role as Mamaw, Luci babysat and spoiled her three grandchildren when they were little.  One of Luci’s favorite ways to show her love for her family was to cook a Sunday dinner and bake delicious pies and cakes.  Her potato salad was legendary.

Luci was preceded in death by her parents Lillie and Rudolph Bedrick Sr., her brothers Daniel Bedrick, Rudolph Bedrick Jr., and her sister Dianna Bedrick.

She is survived by her husband Terry Greenwood, her daughter Jennifer Southwell, her sons David Greenwood and James Greenwood, and her grandchildren Seth Southwell, Isaac Southwell, and Harlie Greenwood.

Slay Memorial Funeral Center is handling the funeral arrangements. A memorial rosary will be said at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church at 9 a.m., Friday, Oct. 20.  Funeral Mass follows at 10 a.m., with graveside interment immediately following.  A luncheon will be served after that at the Parish Hall.
