July 12, 1928-March 2, 2019
God’s Plan for Lucille (Lucy) Rae Browne Chamberlain is now complete. She went to be with the Lord on March 2, 2019 at the age of 90 years old. We would like to thank her friends, family, church family and nurses for their caring support during her illness. She will be remembered for her incredibly positive attitude that carried her through many adventures.
Lucy was born in Binghamton, New York and was a Saint Augustine resident since 2004. She led an extraordinary life, graduating from Maryland Institute of Art, and then becoming a professional artist, working for The May Company and Vogue magazine. She did hundreds of portraits for families, scenery and still lives and attended workshops with many preeminent artists. She traveled extensively to the Philippines and Micronesia while raising a family. Following her husband’s career to Colville, Washington (Confederated Tribes), she went to Thailand, Nepal and Indonesia twice.
Lucy is pre-deceased by her Husband, Philip Chamberlain; parents Raymond and Luella (Gee) Browne; and sisters Barbara Moran and Connie Lee.
She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Daniel and Debra Chamberlain; grandson, Colin Chamberlain; brother Raymond Browne and many nieces and nephews.
