Lucy Coulter Schell, 93, of Candler, passed away Thursday, August 2, 2018 at Pisgah Manor Health Care.

Born in Ojus, Florida, Lucy was the daughter of the late Herbert Lee and Christine Graves Coulter. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Robert Johnson Schell, and brothers Clyde Ray Coulter, Sr. and Herbert Lee Coulter, Jr.

Lucy was a former resident of Connelly Springs, NC, then moved to Asheville to attend Cecil's Business College. She formerly worked as the secretary and a kindergarten teacher at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, where she was a member, and sang in the choir. Lucy was also a member of the Garden Club and Malvern Hills Community Club, and enjoyed neighborhood Bible study. Her servant spirit led her to spend much time at Manna Food Bank and ABCCM.

Surviving are her daughters, Carol Bruckner and Rebecca Mietzner (David); grandchildren, Kyle Mietzner (Ellee) and Jessica Shepherd (Kyle); and great grandchildren, Evangeline Meimi Schell Mietzner, Agnes Lucy Elina Mietzner, Irene Selma Anne Mietzner, Isla Mae Shepherd, and Fiona Ann Shepherd.

Memorial services for Mrs. Schell will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, with the Rev. Dr. Michael McFarland officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 51 Wilburn Place, Asheville, NC 28806.
