Lucille DeEntremont "Yaya" of Stony Point and formerly of Pearl River, died May 7th at Pine Valley Nursing Home in Spring Valley. She was 94. Lucille was born on August 21, 1928 in Chicago, IL to Louis and Helen Chronin. Soon after, the family moved to the Chelsea district of New York City where Lucille was raised and graduated from Washington Irving High School. Two of her fondest childhood memories were of going to Camp Felicia thru the Hudson Guild and riding on the motorcycle of a friend while sitting on the gas tank.
In adulthood, Lucille worked for over 20 years at Bambergers in the Nanuet Mall as a "White Flower" service manager. In her retirement, Lucille enjoyed extensive traveling throughout the world with her friends, gardening, bird watching, reading, watching her beloved NY Mets, ("He did it again!") and crossword puzzles, especially the Sunday NY Times.
Lucille was a longtime member of the Old Stone Saddle River Reformed Church. Lucille/Mom, will forever be remembered for the love she showed her family, her kindness and her overall happiness with life. Those who knew her will long remember her smile. She was also the "Best Class Mother on school trips".
Lucille is survived by her children Josh (Amy), Stephen (Deborah), Jessica Kent (Frank) and Paul (Sally). Grandchildren Dana, Joshua, Chloe Tiongson (Mike), Daniel (Beem), Scott, Gage Kent, Luke Kent (Caitlin), Matthew Herman (Kristin), Kenneth, Jacqueline Santos, Mark, Gabrielle Hernandez (Joel) and great grandchildren Aidan, Gavin, Emma June, Peter Scalia, Eileen Herman, Nora Herman, Jack Santos, Luke Hernandez and Reagan May Kent. Lucille was predeceased by her parents Louis and Helen and siblings Jack and Xenia.
Services for Lucille will be held on Thursday May 11 from 4-7 pm at Wyman Fisher Funeral Home in Pearl River. Burial will be private at a later date.
