Lucille (Lucy) Matison, the daughter of Eva and George Kunkel, was born on Sept. 17, 1932 in Almena, Wis. Her parents had five children, all daughters, and Lucy was the fourth. She grew up on a small dairy farm, attending both the church and country school which were located within walking distance. After graduating from Cumberland High School, she moved to Minneapolis where she worked for a few years and then attended Augsburg college, graduating with a degree in business. After graduation she worked at Lutheran Brotherhood as a secretary to the president. She met Jerry (who was also a student at Augsburg) through a college friend – they shared mutual interests in the natural world, animals and a love for rural living. They were married in a small wedding in Minneapolis in 1960. They had a son, Thor, in 1962 and a daughter, Krista, in 1964. The next year Jerry took a position as a game warden in New Prague, and a few years later in Mound, where Lucy worked as a secretary at the local Lutheran church. In 1970, Jerry took a position in Glenwood and the family moved to the house where Jerry still resides.
