Loving Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother


Lucille Lytle, age 78, of McHenry, passed away peacefully Friday, January 19, 2018. She was born May 16, 1939, daughter of Walter and Eugenia (nee Muchowicz) Gazda.
Lucille graduated from Mount Sinai in Chicago with her nursing degree. She had a life-long career as a Registered Nurse. Even after she retired, she continued to care for others and would even go into her neighbors' homes to help care for them. Lucille loved going on adventures. Whether it be a hike, trip to the ocean, or a picnic, she was always up for anything. Most of all though, she was an amazing mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Lucille will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
She is survived by her loving children: Sheryl (Robert "Murph") Haag, David (Laura) Lytle, and Jennifer Nelson; dear grandchildren: David (Sarah) Raber, Morgan (Andrew) Bykowski, Cory Raber, Heather (Kris) Shuart, Brian Haag, Stephanie Lytle, James Lytle, Michelle Lytle, Alison Schmidt, and Braden Huff; cherished great-granddaughter: Giavanna Raber; beloved brother: Kenneth Gazda; and fond sisters-in-law: Betty Rych and Elisa Rych.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brothers: Reginald Rych and Michael Rych; and Felix Rychlicki.
