Lucita Alcarez

Lucy was the most caring, strong, outgoing woman ever who loved to be with her children, grandchildren, and entire family. Family was everything to her.

Lucy worked as a registered nurse for many years and most knew her by Dr. Lucy. Lucy will be missed by so many and will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

Services for Lucy will be held on March 13, 2021, at Sacred Heart Church in Clifton, starting at 10 a.m. with a rosary, the Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m., and burial to follow in the Sacred Heart Cemetery.

The family will be having a luncheon to celebrate Lucy’s life at her residence immediately following her services.

Arrangements are under the direction of McDougal’s Caldwell Funeral Chapel & Gila Valley Crematory.  Online condolences may be extended at
