Lucille Dawn (Davis) Yancey

April 8, 1943 ~ June 25, 2020 (age 77)


Lucille D. Davis Bittle Yancey, 77, of Kannapolis, went into her heavenly home on Thursday, June 25, 2020.

Lucille was born April 8, 1943 in Murphy, NC to the late Ira Davis and Anna Lou Grogan Allen Davis Rhodes. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husbands, Charles Bittle, Charles Ingle and Joe Yancey, her daughter Anita Sutton and her brothers, Robert Allen, Hillard Davis and James Rhodes.

Lucille was a faithful member of New Covenant Baptist Church. She loved the Lord, her church and church family and her family, no matter how hard it got to cope. She attended A. L. Brown H.S. and worked for China Grove Cotton Mill and others. Lucille loved doing her word search puzzles and watching TV. She loved going to the singings with her special friend, William Harrington and taking rides with him to the lake.

Those left to cherish her memory include her sons, Randall Bittle (Rhonda), Darrell Bittle, Jeff Bittle and Mike Bittle; her daughter, Debra Mullen (Jimmy); her grandchildren, Shannon Bittle, Greg Thompson, Amanda Smith (Brian), Angel Bittle, Isabella Bittle, Chasty Graham, Kayla Graham, Chase Hudson, Mikela Bonino and Haley Gree as well as numerous great-grandchildren, her special friend William Harrington and her beloved pet Chloe. Lucille is also survived by her brothers; Buddy Rhodes (Bernice) and David Rhodes (Pat); her sisters, Marie Allman (Lee) and Janelle Lee and numerous nieces and nephews.

She will be greatly missed by her siblings, especially the ones that have been so close and cared for her. We will meet again.

The family will receive friends on Monday, June 29, 2020 at Whitley’s Funeral Home from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. The funeral service will begin in the chapel at 1:00 p.m. with Rev. Bob Edwards officiating. Burial will immediately follow the service at Carolina Memorial Park.
