Waltraud Erica Lucken known as "Oma" to everyone who loved her, passed away on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at the Jewish Home for the Elderly. Wally was 83 at the time of her death. Born in Gleiwitz, Germany on July 30, 1934. She immigrated to the United States in 1956, and worked in New York City. She was predeceased by her husband, Wilfred ("Fred") Lucken. Wally and Fred were married May 3, 1959 in Hoboken, NJ. Wally was also predeceased by her son, Thomas James Lucken of Monroe, CT. She is survived by her daughter, Karen Cady, her son-in-law Peter Cady, their children Emily and Sarah Cady all of Monroe, CT. Wally is also survived by her grandson Cyrus Sullivan of Crystal Springs, MS. After a long, challenging battle with Alzheimer's, Oma is finally at peace. Her kind, and gentle soul will be missed by all who knew her. Respecting her wishes we will not be having a wake or funeral. Instead, we will be spreading her ashes this summer when we can be together as a family.
