Edith "Lucille" Head Obituary

Edith Lucille Head, 91, passed away on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, in Louisville, Kentucky. Lucille, as she was affectionately known as, was born in Richmond, Virginia on November 13, 1932, to the late William and Ada Stagg. She moved to Louisville in 1955 when she married her husband, Edward Head. They were married for 65 years and raised four children in the Portland Neighborhood. She was a long-time member of St. Cecilia and Good Shepherd Catholic Churches.

She is preceded in death by her husband Edward; son, Paul Head; granddaughter, Meghan Thomas; 4 siblings, and her famous dog, Brandy.

She is survived by her daughter, Cheryl (Rick) Thomas; 2 sons, Mark (Tara) Head, and Bill Head; 11 Grandchildren and spouses; 8 great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; and a host of extended family members and close friends.

Lucille was blessed to have many lifelong friends and neighbors on 29th Street. Although she was visually impaired, she knew instinctively when any child in the neighborhood was standing on the hill in her yard.

She had a great love of U of K Basketball, The Fish House, and Father John Burke, in that order.

In the last 3 years of her life, she lived at The Aldersgate Unit at Wesley Manor. She changed her identity with the move and was lovingly known as Edith to her caregivers.

It has taken a village to help assist Lucille (Edith) through her life. We her family are eternally grateful for all our caregivers. Their dedication and love for our mom will never be forgotten. Phyllis and Trina helped to keep our parents in their home as long as possible. When she did move to the Aldersgate Unit, Edith received the most loving care from everyone. She was treated as if she were their mother.  It would take a book to publicly thank everyone at Wesley Manor. Just know that you are all very special to our family.

A funeral mass for Mrs. Edith Lucille Head, will be held at 11 AM, on Tuesday, Febuary 6, 2024, at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, 3511 Rudd Ave., Louisville, Kentucky. Visitation will be Monday, February 5th from 2 PM to 8 PM at Legacy Funeral Center – Schoppenhorst Chapel, 1832 W. Market Street, Louisville, Kentucky. Burial at Calvary Cemetery will follow the service.

 There are lots of stories to tell and we look forward to hearing them.
