Vivian Lucille (Mayfield) Brewer, 88, passed away Febraury 26, 2014 at Delaware Highlands Assisted Living in Kansas City, Kansas. She was born September 6, 1925, daughter of Floyd William and Letha May (Wilmot) Mayfield. She spent the majority of her life in the communities of Drexel and Harrisonville, Missouri and was a graduate of Adrian High School, Adrian, Missouri.
Lucille was very social. Her family remembers that everywhere she went, she ran into people whom she knew and enjoyed visiting with them. She genuinely cared for other people and was very interested in how they were doing and things happening in the lives of others, much more so than her own. She particularly enjoyed visiting on the phone with her family, and you never knew how long the conversation might last!
Lucille was a very hard worker, particularly on the family farm where she milked cows for many years. She never felt she could get enough canning done; and from farm life to raising her family, Lucille was always on the go.
Lucille was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Lonnie Brewer; brothers Clifford, Ben, Elmer, and Melvin Mayfield; and one grandson, Kenneth Lee Nelson, II. She is survived by her children: Ken Nelson and wife Kim of Costa Rica; Darrell Nelson and wife Sandy of Drexel; Brad Nelson and wife Paula of Kimberling City; Rick Nelson and wife Janet of Shawnee; grandchildren Jamie May and husband Perry; Carrie Page and husband Luke; Rickey Kyle Nelson and wife Rachel; and Tracy Hughes and husband Shawn. She also leaves behind seven great-grandchildren, Jillian, Riley, Boden, Layton, Austin, Alyssa, Kale, and one on the way. She is also survived by her siblings Ines, Ralph, Doris and Jim.
