Lucille Phelps Obituary

Lucille M. Phelps, age 93 of Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin passed away Monday, December 4, 2023, at home surrounded by her family. She was born on the family farm in Glen Haven, WI on September 21, 1930, the daughter of Edmund and Charlotte (Ackerman) Mergen. She grew up in the Glen Haven area and graduated from Bloomington High School with the class of 1949. She then worked as a candy striper in Dubuque, IA. After the death of her father, she greatly helped her mother care for their immediate and extended family. Lucille married Dale Phelps on September 26, 1959, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Glen Haven, WI. Together, they had 4 children and raised their family both in Rochester, MN and Norwalk, IA. When her husband retired, they moved back to southwest Wisconsin. Lucille was the consummate housewife with a devout Catholic faith. She enjoyed praying, keeping the house in order, and attending Mass and church events. She also enjoyed gardening, spending time with family, and in her later years, watching college basketball. Lucille’s husband Dale preceded her in death on August 31, 2015. She is survived by 4 children Darrel Phelps, Angela (Roger Moots) Conklin, Monica (Luis Morales) Mains, and Christopher (Jenny) Phelps; granddaughter Susan Conklin, numerous nieces and nephews, and her Godchild and personal caregiver Julie Metcalf Cull. She was preceded in death by her parents, an infant sibling, brothers Jerome, Raymond, and Donald Mergen, and sister Mary Huser.
