Lucille Kimbrough Thomas was born on September 13, 1927 in Talbotton, Georgia to the late Joe Henry Kimbrough Beach and Lizzie Miller Leonard Kimbrough. As a young girl she moved and grew up in Cartersville, Georgia.

She was involved in many of the accomplishments at the church. She was a faithful member until her health declined.
Mother Thomas to some and Ms. Lucille to others, was a loving soul and a true gift from God that lived her childhood and adult life serving the Lord and exemplifying His love to all she came in contact with. She became the matriarch of her family after the loss of her husband in 1979 that she provided care for many years. She encouraged and prayed for so many people. She was an avid believer and trusted God.
Left to cherish her loving memories are nine children, Bernice Williams (Charlie), Long Beach California, Barbara Elder, Matthew Mallory Jr., Beverly Hinson, Paula Johnson (Clark), Henry L. Thomas, Minnie Thomas (Henry), Carolyn Banks (Stacy) and Tyrone Thomas all of Cartersville, Georgia; one brother-in-law Willie Thomas, Atlanta, Georgia; Sixteen grandchildren, twenty-one great-grandchildren with one on the way and eleven step-great grandchildren, special cousin/sister Mary Lee Carter and two special friends Mary Lou Kitchen ,Susan Wade and a host of church family and friends.
