"Mrs. Lucienne Morgan, nee Ramcharan, lovingly known as \u0026quot;Lucille\u0026quot; or \u0026quot;Aunty Tiny\u0026quot;, was born on May 16th, 1939 in St Mary, Jamaica to Isaac and Louise Ramcharan. As Lucille grew to the age where she was old enough to start school, she attended Water Valley Primary. As she grew into a young lady, she then went on to attend a Commercial school in Port Maria. As a young woman, Lucille met and fell in love with Astley Mason (deceased). From that relationship, Lucille would come to give birth to a daughter Patricia, lovingly known as \u0026quot;Pat\u0026quot;, and a son named Ron, lovingly known as \u0026quot;Phillip\u0026quot;. Lucille migrated to the USA in the late 60\u0027s and resided in Brooklyn, NY. During that time, Lucille met the man that would become her husband, Ronald Morgan (deceased).
