1921 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
LUCILLE SAGAN Our dear, sweet mother, Lucille (nee Nitz) Sagan, passed away March 23, 2017, surrounded by her family. Though we are heartbroken that she left to be with our father, we are so grateful that she was with us past her 95th birthday. Born Dec., 7, 1921, to Leo and Constance Nitz, she always said that growing up in Toledo, Ohio, was one of the favorite times in her life with her brother, Eugene, sister, Rita, and among her many aunts, uncles and cousins, in a mostly Polish, partly Austrian, extended family. She met our father, Julian (Joe), in Hamtramck, Mich., at a family wedding. It was love at first sight. After getting married in 1946, they began their life together in Detroit where their daughters, Julia and Diane, were born. Dad wanted to raise his family outside the city on a lake. Around 1954, they moved to Lake Orion, first renting a house on Square Lake, and then building their own house on Bunny Run Lake. Soon Elaine was born. After they retired, they decided to move to Las Vegas in 1989, along with their daughter, Julia. Diane soon followed. They loved the change, especially the weather and visiting their local casinos. They enjoyed every minute of it together until the passing of our dad in 2004. Mom moved in with her daughter and son-in-law, Julia and tom, and truly enjoyed her life until her passing. She was sharp, alert and mobile until she fell and had to be hospitalized on March 2, which was the beginning of the end. The last thing she said was that she missed our dad. She leaves behind her daughters, Julia (Tom), Diane and Elaine; eight grandchildren and their spouses; six great-grandchildren; nieces; nephews; and cousins to mourn her passing. Services will be at 10 a.m., Thursday, May 11 at Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Veterans Memorial Drive, Boulder City, NV 89005, where she will be rejoined with our father. Thank you, mom, for giving us so much of yourself. We miss you!
