Obituary of Mary Dell Lacey

Our precious angel mother, Mary Dell Lacey, was born November 26, 1924 to Mary Zuckero Ciulla and Phillip Ciulla in Houston, Texas, and entered into eternal life on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 in Houston, Texas.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Paul Francis Lacey; sister, Pauline Hall; and brother, Anthony Phillip Ciulla.

She is survived by her daughter, Karen Renee Lacey; son, Michael Phillip Lacey; nieces, Sharlyne Norellini, Lisa Cornett, Stephanie Jenkins; nephew, Phillip Ciulla; and sister-in-law, Josii Ciulla; as well as may great-nieces and nephews.

Mary Dell was a charter member of the Neo Debs Club and a member of Theresians International Day One Community.  She also worked many years for the Gordon’s Jewelers.

Mother was stricken with Alzheimer’s Disease 10 years ago.  She never complained and was literally a living saint.

She had the gentlest touch and the sweetest smile. 

The family would like to thank, Drs. Kevin Nickell, Peter Chang, Viren Shah, and Vivian Pham, as well as Memorial Hermann Southwest ER and Home Health.  Also, many thanks to Houston Hospice.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m., Monday, December 17, 2018 at Corpus Christi Catholic Church, 9900 Stella Link, in Houston, Texas.  The Rite of Committal will follow at Forest Park Lawndale Cemetery in Houston, Texas.
