Anthony Collins, David Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, Shawn Barnes, Kenneth M. Tyler, Creighton Moorehead, and Buddy Hogan Shae Barnes, Larry Jordan, Eric Jordan, Andrew Johnson, Thomas Bonner, Lennie Harrison III, King Gooch, Charles Davis, and Gerald Sharkey It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone For part of us went with you The day God called you home. To see you face to face and watch you smile. To sit and talk with you awhile. To be together in the same old way Would be our greatest wish today. You left so suddenly - without a goodbye. But you left us memories that will never die. God gave us strength to bear it And courage to face the blow. But what it means to lose you No one will ever know. I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me. Philippians 4:13 REPAST St. John AME Church, “Mack Tyler Fellowship Hall” ARRANGEMENTS ENTRUSTED TO In loving memories of my sister, Lucille. I will always remember her caring and cheerful ways. We shared many phone calls. She referred to them as " popcorn calls," it didn't matter the time of day. It was a joy to be in her presence. I will surely miss her. Sister Alice To My dear Sister, You were a beautiful sister always there for me even as children. I am truly going to miss you. Love you, your brother Joseph To a dear Sister & Aunt, We Love you and we all are going to miss you. You were a beautiful blessing to all of us. The Jordan Family Acknowledgment PALLBEARERS HONORARY PALLBEARERSLucille Tyler, affectionately known as “Cille”, was born November 29, 1932, in Columbus, Mississippi to Lennie Moore and Mary Lee Harrison. She enjoyed her early life with her two brothers and five sisters. After graduating from Robert E. Hunt High School in 1952, she embarked on a life journey and moved to Kirkwood, Missouri. When Lucille arrived in Kirkwood, she began work as a server at Scullin Steel. Working in the cafeteria, she met the love of her life and husband of 63 years McPhaniel “Mack” Tyler. Shortly after the birth of her daughter Jean, the family moved to Omaha, Nebraska in 1955; some years later she welcomed son, Kenneth. During her life in Omaha, Lucille worked as a nurse aide at Doctor’s Hospital and retired as a CNA from Methodist Hospital. After retirement, Lucille worked a number of years for the Omaha Public School System and she was a home health care nurse. In addition to being a wife, mother, and grandmother, Lucille lived a full life displaying her many talents and hobbies. She was a skillful seamstress, making outfits for family and friends which included making matching bedding and curtains for her newborn grand-babies. She enjoyed craft making, fashioning corsages and centerpieces for parties and get- togethers. As a talented baker, she loved making delicious cakes, pies, breads, and cookies to not only fill your belly but add some pounds to it too. Often she would team with her husband Mack, as she baked the sweets and he cooked the meats for the many church events at St. John AME throughout the decades. Lucille also found enjoyment in bowling and yard work. Despite life’s challenges, Lucille remained a devoted Christian and long-time member of St. John AME Church. She was a member of the 20th Century Club, Missionary Society, a stewardess, and served as choir president for a number of years. Along with her walk with Christ, family was definitely what mattered most to Lucille. She stayed steadfast to her family, never missed a family reunion, and served as an Officer of the Harrison Family Reunion Committee for many years. In the afternoon of May 20, 2021, Lucille Tyler closed her eyes at the age of 88, surrounded by family in her Omaha home. Lucille was preceded in death by her parents Lennie and Mary Harrison; husband McPhaniel Tyler; children Joseph Tyler and Bernice Baker; four siblings Rosetta Johnson, Elizabeth Bonner, Lennie Harrison II, and Mary Haynes. She will lovingly be remembered by her daughter, Jean (Lambert) Rusan; two sons Kenneth (Angie) Tyler and Mack ‘Lee’ Tyler; and three siblings Alice Smith, Evelena Jordan, and Joseph Harrison. She will also be deeply missed by her ten grandchildren, Anthony (Kim) Collins, David (Belinda) Jackson, Jermaine (D’Andria) Jackson, Shae Barnes, Shawn (Credessa) Barnes, Naomi Washington, Christina Rusan, Kenneth M. Tyler, Angela L. Tyler, and Johnathan Wiggins; and a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and
