Hebb, Lucy Marion – Conquerall
Mills. Lucy was born to Ruth and D. Stewart Hebb, pioneers in the
greenhouse business, August 15, 1958. She was the second to last of
six children. She joined her older sisters Dianne and Maryann, along
with brothers Rickey, Bubby (Stewart) and later Baby brother Bill.
While growing up Lucy and all her siblings worked at the family
greenhouse & farm. After graduating from Hebbville
Consolidated High School, Lucy took a Clerk Typist course at the
Bridgewater Vocational School. She worked at a few witnessing jobs,
then she moved to Lunenburg in an apartment with her best friend Rae.
Together, they worked at National Sea for seven years. During that
time, Lucy realized that factory work wasn’t for her, she
needed the freedom to maker her own decisions, to be her own boss. So,
Lucy and Rae purchased a small bus and made it into a mobile canteen
which they named the Yum-Yum !!, after Rae’s mothers
original Yum-Yum Bus. For many years they travelled around Nova Scotia
to Exhibitions and other events. Although it was long hours and hard
work, every day was an adventure and they were living the dream. They
later set up the canteen on Crescent Beach (Lun Co.). The beach was a
beautiful place to work. Lucy was especially fond of the friendly
local people. After 31 years the old bus had seen its better days and
it was time to end an era. Lucy returned to a place she truly loved,
her family greenhouse business. Rae and her husband Joseph joined her,
and together the three of the them renovated, expanded and built up a
successful business growing and selling their flowers. Lucy was
exceptionally talented in creating beautiful planters. Her mother and
father would have been so proud of her and they way she handled the
business. Although Lucy was not much for hobbies, she liked sports and
followed them closely. She fondly recalled the family all sitting in
front of their black and white television on Saturday night watching
the hockey games. She was a devoted Toronto Maple Leafs fan all her
life. For a month each winter, Lucy, Rae, and Joseph would travel
south to enjoy the warmth and explore the beauty of Costa Rica. A lot
of inspiration for the planning and changes to the greenhouse was done
here surrounded by lush green Vegetation and gorgeous flowers. Lucy
was diagnosed with stage 4 Colon Cancer early in 2016. Even with these
diagnosis, she still continued to do the things she loved between
Chemotherapy treatments. She still liked working in eh greenhouse,
picking and selling vegetables and entertaining customers and friends.
She even went camping in Newfoundland, Cape Breton and some of the
local campgrounds in the area. Before her diagnosis, Lucy lived a very
healthy life and had never been to a doctor or hospital for anything.
We will be forever grateful to the staff and volunteers at Chemo for
making “Lemons into Lemonade”. Lucy said that any
one of those nurses could be her friends. Many times, Lucy said
‘How did I get so lucky to have Dr. Heather Johnson, and Dr.
Heather Robertson as my doctors,”. She would recall how Dr.
Proctor saved her life by doing emergency surgery late at night. Lucy
truly appreciated all the kind and caring help that she received from
throughout the Health care System and from her friends and family
during her illness. The family will be receive friends from 7-9pm
Tuesday in R.A. Corkum Funeral Home, Wileville, and where Memorial
Service will be held 2:00pm Wednesday. Interment will be in Hebbville
Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the
South Shore Regional Hospital, SHAID Animal Shelter or the Charity of
your choice. On-line condolences may be made by visiting
