The former Lucille Amanda Christine Germer was born on February 5, 1921 to Fred and Lillian (Granlow) Germer in Browns Corners, Dodge County, Wisconsin. On December 9, 1940 she was united in marriage with Aaron Korht at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Browns Corners. She worked with flowers, crafting, and doing elder care all of her life. Lucilia and Aaron owned and operated numerous flower shops, mostly in the Dodge County area. For a period of time, they lived in Eau Claire and Lucilia had the honor of making floral arrangements for first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, which was a conversation that she loved to share with anyone. They started the Flower Shop and Green House (Juneau Floral) in Juneau and ran the Colonial Shop in Horicon for a number of years. Some of her best memories were while she lived in Fox Lake from 1991 until 2011 where she enjoyed maintaining her home and caring for her garden. She was a Leader of the Recovery Group Incorporated for 10 years. Lucilia was a member of various garden clubs as well as a long-time member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Fox Lake.
