Lucille Toney

Lucille Reel Toney, 88, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away on the evening of Thursday, October 29, 2020 at Autumn Care of Marion.

A native of McDowell County, she was born on October 09, 1932 to the late Zed and Bertha Curtis Reel. She was a graduate of Marion High School.

Mrs. Toney worked for many years as an LPN both for Dr. Mark Burton and at the McDowell Hospital, even working until she was 80 years old. A member of First Baptist Church of Marion, Lucille was a faithful Christian who truly loved the Lord. She was a lifelong member of the Order of the Eastern Star and the Order of the Amaranth. She was a wonderful wife and mother, and she will be remembered as a great caregiver. She always looked out for others, whether they were family or not. Lucille was well loved and respected, and she continued her legacy of caring and teaching even as a patient at Autumn Care.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Carroll Toney; her daughter, Sherry Toney; four siblings, Jim, Dan, Melvin, and Georgia Ruth Reel; and four nieces and nephews, Pam Hardin, Ruth Reel, and Kirby and Dan Toney.

She is survived by her sister, Sarah Reel Roper and many special nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 01, 2020 in the chapel of Beam Funeral Service at 4:00 p.m. with Dr. Scott Hagaman officiating.

The family will receive friends from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., one hour prior to the service.

There are no words to tell your family how much those of us that were blessed to work with Lucille admired her strength of character and loved her. How she inspired us because I know there were many days she didn't feel like being there but she always showed up and did the very best work! I never had to worry about her patients because she had a tender heart and those that were privileged to have her assigned to their care benefited every day by her wonderful care. I loved her, we shared many laughs and there were even a few times I benefited from her directing me in a different route than the one I happened to be on. This week end I was at my sons for my grandson's 19th birthday and when he was diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum Lucille was one of those who hugged me and told me that God would care for our entire family during this journey and He has. I know that same God will give you strength as you face the loss of this dear lady.

I had the pleasure of working with Lucille and she exhibited the love of her Lord to her co-workers and patients. Her kindness will never be forgotten.

Lucille was such a wonderful nurse & friend when we worked together at The McDowell Hospital. She never wasted any time after shift reports to get out on the floor & begin her patient care. I still have a pair of nursing scissors that she gave to me.
