Her Life
On November 13, 1930 Lucille Maud Hines entered the world in the serene village of  Belvedere, Westmoreland, Jamaica, West Indies.  She was the fourth of six children born to Louise Lawrence and Peter Dayes.

Lucille attended the Kew Park Primary School and then moved to Montego Bay in Jamaica.  Lucille married Ralph GIlrel Hines in 1955.  Lucille supported Ralph as he built his construction business, Safe-T Construction.  During her marriage, Lucille had the opportunity to become a licensed practical nurse and worked for several years as a private duty nurse for Doctor Eldemire and at Montego Bay Hospital.  Lucille later managed the western regional office of the Insurance Company of the West Indies (ICWI) in Montego Bay, Jamaica.  Lucille and Ralph built a warm home for their family on Tucker Avenue in Irwin, St. James where all were welcomed.

In the early 1990s, Lucille migrated to the United States periodically providing nursing care to elderly patients in South Florida.  It was at this time that she started attending the Maranatha Seventh-day Adventist Church where she served as a Bible Worker and Elder.  After her husband Ralph passed away in 1996, Lucille permanently relocated to the United States living in New York for several years and then moving to Coral Springs where she continued her ardent ministry at Maranatha and then Eliathah Seventh-day Adventist Churches.  In 2012, Lucille moved to Port Saint Lucie where she continued her ministry efforts at the Port Saint Lucie Seventh-day Adventist Church.  At each of her churches, she was a beacon of light and a transformational leader.  She was a prolific preacher of God’s word, Sabbath School Superintendent, Children’s Ministry leader, Ordained Elder, First Elder, Prayer Warrior, Women’s Ministry Leader, Counselor, and Friend.

Lucille leaves behind her sister Ina (Tiny) Whittingham; five children, Patricia Grey (Alton), Jean Carey  (Philip), Claudette Giscombe (Bert), Glendon (Doreen), and Devon (Annmarie); thirteen grandchildren: Neil, Erin, Phil Jr, Peter, Kamilah, Omari, Imani, D’anna, Glendon, Kaylee, Devon Jr, Anthony, and Arianna; and five great-grandchildren, Ainsworth Jr., Keegan, Tristen, Marissa and David Marilyn. Lucille also leaves a host of nieces and nephews, god children, cousins, and thousands of church family both here and abroad.

Lucille viewed every minute of every day as an opportunity to minister to everyone and bring people to Jesus.
