Obituary for Mary N. Lucas

March 12, 1938 - July 31, 2021
Westlake, Ohio | Age 83

Loving Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother, Sister and Friend


Mary N. Lucas, 83, of Westlake passed away Saturday, July 31, 2021 at Ames Family Hospice in Westlake. She was born March 12, 1938 in Cleveland, Ohio to James and Essie (McMorris) Lee.

Mary leaves behind a legacy of love and joy to her friends and family. Growing up in Cleveland, she learned the value of hard work and close relationships. Mary always enjoyed family gatherings for birthdays and holidays and sharing a meal together at her favorite restaurant Golden Coral. She also had an incredibly special bond with her twin sister Martha Carpenter; they both attend the Twin Festival in Twinsburg, OH and raised their children together. Mary had a beautiful smile and a singing voice to match. Music of all kinds brought her great joy, she sang in her church choir, taught herself how to play the piano and enjoyed listening to older R & B and contemporary Christian music on her radio

Mary leaves to cherish her memory four beloved daughters Zeytavia (formerly known as Linda) Bagwell, Alessa Tate, Maria Tate-Dickson and her husband Gary Dickson, and Teresa Blanchard and her husband Erin Blanchard; devoted grandchildren Sabino Tate, Remona Taylor and her husband Raymell Taylor, and Angelaca Tate-Washington and her husband DeSean Washington. She is also survived by her identical twin sister Martha Carpenter, and sister Helen Spencer; a host of great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mary is preceded in death by her parents; her son Jordan Tate; and eleven siblings.
