M. Lucille (Beverlin) Dumas, 94, formerly of Malone, NY, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Friday, April 2, 2021. She is now reunited with her husband of 61 years, Leonard J. Dumas, who predeceased her in 2007.
Myrtle Lucille was born in Wray, CO on July 24, 1926, the daughter of Charles and Nina (May) Beverlin. A graduate of Lakewood, CO High School, she and Leonard settled in Malone upon their marriage in 1946, where they raised their three children and were active and social members of their community. Lucille was a faithful communicant of the former Notre-Dame Church, serving as a BINGO caller and on their Altar Rosary Society, a member of the Golden Age Club and American Legion Post 219 Women’s Auxiliary. Lucille retired from Alice Hyde Medical Center as Director of Medical Records for more than 25 years where she supported health care initiatives as a volunteer for their Auxiliary. Lucille relocated to Connecticut in 2008 to be closer to her family, and continued her volunteerism as a longtime resident ambassador while living at Village Gate in Farmington, participating in their many events and fundraisers. She was a passionate UCONN basketball fan, and showed her love for her home state of Colorado as a lifelong follower of the Denver Broncos, watching games alongside her faithful feline companion “Benny”. She “Blessed Our Little Hearts” with her warm smile and ever present kindness and will be missed dearly.
She is survived by her daughters Nancy Wasley and her husband Alan of Southington and Sandra Dumas-Laferriere and her husband Roger of Bristol; her daughter-in-law, Shirley Dumas of Mobile, AL; six grandchildren, and several great-grandchildren. She also leaves her brother, Gary Beverlin and his wife, Vi; her sister-in-law, Marjorie Beverlin; many nieces, nephews and her dear friend and caretaker, Glennis Wheeler.
She was predeceased by her son, Ronald and her brother, Charles “Jack” Beverlin.
