Obituary for Carla Marie Lucett

July 11, 1936 - May 17, 2020
Burlingame, California | Age 83


Our precious Carla, passed away peacefully at home in Burlingame CA, surrounded by her loving family who meant the world to her. Born in Oakland to Karl and Edna Loeffler and loving sister to her pre-deceased brother, Scott. Carla was a loving and devoted wife to Neal of 56 years. She leaves behind her daughter Denise Soucy (Roger), her four sons, Matthew (Lisa), Michael (Chris), Scott (Chere) and Terrance. Carla's four grandchildren: Derek Jensen, Christa Dean, Erin and Collin Lucett and great-grandchildren: Jameson and Laila Dean, and Hadley-Rose Jensen adored their Grandma and Grandma "Lu". Carla's extended family composed of loving brothers-in-law, sisters-in law, nieces, nephews, and cousins are additionally deeply saddened by her passing.

Carla graduated from Notre Dame High school in Belmont in 1954. In addition to being an amazing Mom to 5 children, her occupations included bank teller for Wells Fargo, and instructional assistant for 12 years, teaching children at McKinley Elementary and Burlingame Intermediate School. Carla possessed a strong faith and was a dedicated member of St. Catherine's of Siena Catholic Church in Burlingame for the past 51 years. She volunteered selflessly, teaching catechism to children for 25 years and RCIA classes (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) to adults who wished to convert to the Catholic faith. She additionally became a Eucharistic Minister and provided communion to senior citizens who lived at Sterling Court in San Mateo.

Carla, with Neal were incredible friends to many and enjoyed traveling and laughter- filled social gatherings with those friends. But clearly, Carla's greatest source of joy was living her faith and spending invaluable time with her family whom she loved dearly and who loved her in return even more.
Due to present restrictions on social gatherings, a private rosary will be held on Monday, May 25th in the evening followed by a private funeral on Tuesday, May 26th at Crosby N Gray in Burlingame. Attendance is limited to Carla's children and their spouses. A memorial mass and reception for extended family and friends will occur at a later date.
