LUCY LEE McMANUS AURIT CHRISTY

Feb. 28, 1921 – Dec. 16, 2020

Lucy Lee McManus Aurit Christy, 99, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2020, from COVID-19.

She was born Feb. 28, 1921, to Wilbur and Verdie McManus in Meadville.

During World War II, she met Philip Aurit, and soon after they were married.

After the war, they moved to Los Angeles, Calif.

She was a dedicated wife and mother — first and foremost.

She took great pride in gardening, fashion, socializing, and, of course, her family.

Her husband Philip was tragically killed in a car accident in 1972.

She then went to work for Hughes Aircraft, and retired in 1985.

Once retired, she was reunited with long-time friend, Miles Christy, and they were married in 1985.

Together, they enjoyed golfing, traveling and dancing.

Lucy is survived by her four children, Philip, Mark, David and Jenny, and daughter-in-law, Hannahmarie; grandchildren Brian, Gregory, Tara, Julie and Jared; and great-grandchildren Owen, Athena, Maxine and Emelia.

She was deeply loved by all.

Funeral services are to be determined at a future date by the family.
