Lucille Marie Matthias was born on May 8, 1917, in Greenwood, the daughter of Albert and Alma (nee Kieselhorst) Matthias. At the age of 5, her family moved to Loyal, and then at the age of 8, they moved to Neenah. She was raised and received her education in Neenah, where she graduated from high school. After graduation, Lucille worked as a telephone operator in Neenah for a few years. She married Hillus K. Kadolph in Neenah on Feb. 24, 1941. They moved to Loyal and farmed on his family farm. In 1952, they built the Dairy Queen at the south end of Marshfield, which they operated for two years. She worked for several years at Weinbrenner Shoe Company in Marshfield, and farmed with her husband until 1970. They sold the farm to their son and daughter-in-law, Roger and LaVerne, and moved to Arizona where they resided for 18 years. They moved back to Loyal in the late 1980s. Her husband, Hillus, died on June 7, 2003. Lucille moved to Marshfield in 2004 and resided there until her death. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church and its TLCW, and a member of the Clark County Homemakers. In her spare time, Lucille loved gardening, sewing, quilting and polka dancing.

She will be dearly missed by her three sons, Roger (LaVerne) Kadolph, Loyal, Randy (Jean) Kadolph, Waupaca, and Jack (Vicki) Kadolph, Loyal; one daughter-in-law, Marian Kadolph, Marshfield; 12 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; and other relatives and friends.
