Lucille Marie Hennessy a lifelong resident of Dobbs Ferry was born on June 21, 1944 to Anthony and Antoinette Ciancio in Yonkers New York. She passed away on March 31st after a short but strong fight with pancreatic cancer. She attended Dobbs Ferry schools and graduated in 1962. She was very proud of her athletic achievement while at DF High School winning awards in track & field, softball and volleyball. After school she worked in her Uncle Sam’s restaurant with her family. She met her husband Edward on a blind date in the summer of 1961; they were married on August 16, 1969 at Our Lady of Pompeii church. She spent her life raising her two children Brian and Kathleen, and caring for her grandchildren. She was very active in her children’s grade school, Sacred Heart of Dobbs Ferry, serving on many committees and was co-president of the Home and School Association and a Co-Chairperson of the fundraising committee. She and her close friend Geraldine Mullen started the Limited Ticket Raffle for Scared Heart which is still one of the major fundraisers for the Sacred Heart-Our Lady of Pompeii parish. She was a parishioner of Our Lady of Pompeii parish and active in their annual spaghetti dinner. Lucille was a person who could brighten your day with her infectious smile and laugh; she would make anyone she met comfortable and go out of her way to help her friends. She was very proud of the friendships she maintained from high school and will be sorely missed by everyone who knew her. She is survived by her husband of 50 years Ed, son Brian (Rosanna), daughter Kathleen Tobacco (Jason) and grandchildren Gabriella and Christian Hennessy, Kailee and Jaden Tobacco, brother Anthony Ciancio (Eleanor) of Whitesboro NY along with many cousins, nieces and nephews from both the Hennessy and Ciancio families. Due to the current state guidelines there will be no funeral, only a graveside service with the immediate family, at a later date a memorial service will held.
