We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Molesworth-Williams P.A. Funeral Home
Helen Lucille Screen, 97, of Gaithersburg, Maryland passed away at home September 1st, 2022.
Lucille was born in Lakewood, New Jersey, April 9th, 1925, to her parents John and Mildred Clayton and was the oldest of 5 children Doug, Glenn, Beverly, and Clifford.
Lucille graduated from Toms River High School and worked for the New Jersey Bell telephone company. She had a great love for the ocean and fishing. She later moved to New York and graduated from Traphagen School of Fashion where she had a real talent for design. She had so much talent that a skirt was featured on the cover of Mademoiselle Magazine and a blouse in the Sears catalog. There was not anything she could not do from making wedding dresses to upholstering furniture to making the perfect pie with the thinnest pie crust. It was in New York on New Year's Eve, 1953 that she met Ernest at a party. It was love at first sight and they were married in June 1954. The couple moved to Maryland where they had two children, Craig and Janet. Lucille and Ernest also built a home at Deep Creek Lake, MD which is enjoyed by many friends and 4 generations of family. She was involved in Y Women, Homemakers Club, Sugarloaf Mountain Region AACA, The American Legion Post 171, Harwood House Thrift Shop, and the Girl Scouts. Lucille loved her family, especially her grandchildren, and great grandchild.
She is survived by her husband of 68 years Ernest Screen, her brother Glenn Clayton, her daughter Janet Rossignuolo and husband Jon, her grandchildren Morgan Screen, Kristy Rossignuolo, Tony Rossignuolo and wife Kaitlyn, Allison Fleming and husband Justin, and great granddaughter Brooke Rossignuolo. She is also survived by her late son's wife, Karen Screen.
