She was born in Blanch, North Carolina, one of six children of Harry and Fannie Slade. After graduating from Duke University with a degree in nursing, Lucy joined the army at the start of WWII. She was very proud of her service as an army nurse, and she enjoyed speaking to various groups about her experiences in the Pacific Theater. Lucy was a long standing member of the Calvery United Methodist Church , enjoyed singing in the choir, and a member of P.E.O. International. She also was an avid gardener and many of her plants have been shared throughout Annapolis. She enjoyed playing bridge and visiting with her neighbors, especially in her later years.

She was pre-deceased by her husband, Edwin C. Libby, whom she met in the army. She is survived by her sister, Betsy Wampler, and her children, Ron Libby, Gayle Curtiss, and Jan French. She also is survived by her five grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
