Lucia Angela Hybarger


Lucia Hybarger, loving wife, mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully at home in Trophy Club, Texas in the evening of April 19th. Born on March 17, 1943 in Argentina, Lucy came to the USA in 1971 in an exchange teacher program with Argentina. She was employed as a teacher in South Carolina where she met her future husband, Richard Hybarger. Following their mariage on April 8, 1972, they lived in Decatur, Illinois , Friendswood, Texas and Palestine, Texas prior to moving to Trophy Club with their family in 2008.
A strong believer in the Catholic faith, she actively participated with her husband at the Outreach Center at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Grapevine, Texas. She was a devoted mother to her three children, supporting the kids through school work, sports and numerous other activities. She was a world traveler and excelled in ballroom dancing. She was known by her children to be the caregiver to all the animals in her neighborhood.

Lucy had a stubborn determination about her and it was that strength of character and her hope in Christ that helped her overcome 13 years of cancer diagnosis and treatments so that she could spend as much time with her children as possible. She literally willed herself to stay alive so that she could faithfully serve as a light for her family and friends. We are relieved that her battle has come to an end and that she has found peace.

Survivors include her husband, Richard; sons, Steven and Glen; daughter, Clarissa Wallace; four grand daughters, Olivia, Sophia, Madison, and Lauren; and one grandson, Alexander. She is also survived by her brother, Armando Lizza, of Argentina. She was preceded in death by her father Armando Lizza, her mother Lucia Lizza, and her sister, Anna.

Visitation will be Sunday April 28rd from 5 to 7 PM at the J E Foust & Son Funeral Home , 523 S. Main St., Grapevine, Tx.. A funeral Mass will be held Monday April 29th at 11:00AM at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church Grapevine. Internment will follow at 1:30PM at the DFW National Cemetary.

The family requests that memorials be made to St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church Outreach, 461 Wildwood Lane, Grapevine, TX 76051. An acknowledgement of your memorial, in her name, will be sent to the family from St. Francis Church.

Condolences to the family. I am deeply saddened by hearing of Lucia's passing. I worked with her many years in Palestine, TX at Northside Primary School. She taught 1st grade and I was her teacher assistant. We became very good friends. She always made me laugh. Lucia had a big heart and was one of the most caring people I have ever known. Rest in peace my friend.

Lucia and I were such good friends at work and in the community. Her smile and desire for her students to learn was such an example for all that knew her. Her love for her husband and family was fantastic.
Richard, we were so proud to know Lucia, you and your children and every time we were together we had a wonderful time.
God bless all of you and we all know that Lucia is with Jesus in Heaven and that we will see her again up there.
