Lucille G. Emerson, of Southern Pines, died December 12, 2020 at St. Joseph of the Pines.

Lucille was born in Illinois on May 20, 1918 to Walter and Meta (Bartels) Johnson.  After a successful real estate career, she and husband Robert (Bob) Emerson retired to Carolina Trace in Sanford, NC.  Following Bob’s death, Lucille moved to Belle Meade Retirement Community.  She was an accomplished artist, had a flair for fashion, and will be remembered for her radiant smile.
