Veteran Columnist for the Rockford Register Star Dies

Lucy Miele died over the weekend at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota where she was being treated for a bacterial infection.

Miele's first column appeared in the newspaper in 1970 and she continued to write slice-of-life style articles until she fell ill about a month ago.

She also performed in one-woman historical presentations at the DeSoto House Hotel in Galena. Her shows included a depiction of Julia Dent Grant, the wife of Ulysses S. Grant.

Her husband Terry Auen says Miele loved people and tried to help them in any way she could.

Funeral services will be held Friday morning in Stockton.
