Carolyn Joyce Schlinke Lucas, 67, of Cuero passed away Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020. She was born on July 5, 1953 in Cuero to Farris and Rosa Lee Matejek Schlinke. Carolyn was a retired CNA and worked for Cuero Home Health for over 20 years. She was a caretaker to all, even when she was sick. Carolyn enjoyed seeing the flowers bloom from the small “cuttings” she loved to collect and was always up for a good laugh. She absolutely adored being a “grammy” and “momma.” Her greatest joy was seeing her children and grandchildren happy.
She is survived by her daughter, Tina Alese Lucas of Austin; son, Tommie Gerald Lucas, Jr. of Cuero; sister, Nancy Schlinke Bostick of Rocksprings; brother, Harold Schlinke of Cuero; and grandchildren, Layla Ann Lucas and Rose Lee Thomas, both of Cuero.
She was preceded in death by her parents and husband, Tommie Gerald Lucas, Sr.
A memorial service will be held at a later date once the dangers of COVID are lifted.
