Lucille was born on January 22, 1932 to Ed Pettit and Agnes (Jones) Pettit Rudolf at Hebron, Iowa. She was the oldest of seven children living most of her life in Adair County. She attended school in Zion and Macksburg, Iowa.

On June 2, 1953 she married John Dallas Meisenheimer in Winterset, Iowa. They raised her youngest sister Janice and a niece, Rosemary and nephew, Mike. They then took in 27 foster children the last one being John Dallas Meisenheimer Jr. who is still in our family. After Johnny graduated she became a long time caregiver to many elderly people. She enjoyed this very much.

Dallas and Lucille were longtime members of the Stuart Friends Church where she served in many capacities. Above everything else in life she loved serving her lord Jesus Christ. Her greatest joy was attending church, being with her church family and helping others.
