Obituary

Lucile “Luci” Leeth Bentley went to her heavenly home on September 12, 2022. Luci grew up in Lebanon, TN, where she met her husband, Bob. They later moved to Hazel Green, AL where she has resided for over 60 years.

She dedicated her life to Jesus Christ as a young girl and has lived to serve him. She has been a very active member of Hazel Green United Methodist Church serving as Sunday School teacher for adults and children, youth leader, choir member, leader of women’s groups, Stephens ministry and in many other areas of church leadership. She supported missions and spent two months serving in Bolivia, herself. Her Christian life was as beautiful as the flowers that she loved so well and her influence will forever remain in the lives of all who knew her.

She worked alongside her husband, “Dr. Bob”, in their veterinary clinic, serving as book-keeper and receptionist. She was also very active in her community and local schools. She was a voting poll worker for years and was involved in PTA, Band Boosters and supported her children in any and all endeavors. She was a beautiful seamstress, an avid gardener, and loved reading, crosswords, music and dancing (line dancing and jitterbugging with Bob).

Her beautiful life will be forever cherished by her husband of 65 years, Dr. Robert Bentley and three daughters: Bekah Boswell (Freddy), Katherine Howard (David), and Bitsy Dickard (Woody) and by her nine grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. She is also survived by 2 sisters and a host of devoted nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Visitation will be at Hazel Green United Methodist Church at 11:00 am on Saturday, September 17, 2022 with services to follow at 12:30 pm.  A graveside committal service will follow at Maple Hill Cemetery in Huntsville. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Hazel Green United Methodist Church or Clearview Cancer Institute.
