Lucy Lustig Charlotte Carolina Cremation Charlotte

Lucy Jane Biron Lustig lived 56 exuberant years, planting creativity, friendship, and hope around her native Charlotte. She was a cook, gardener, quilter, entrepreneur, and dreamer who encouraged others to see the richness in their own lives.

Lucy was incessantly curious. Her formal studies included dance, anthropology, horticulture, shiatsu, macrobiotics, and painting. She wanted others to dream as big and fiercely as she did, and was forever sharing visions for businesses we could create, communities we could build, and resources we could tap to create local economies.

Lucy was born on Oct. 15, 1961 and died on Thanksgiving 2017. She was pre-deceased by her parents Joseph Leodore Biron Sr., and Mavis Rowlett Biron and is survived by her partner Kenny Buettner, her brothers Joe and Dale Biron, her sister-in-law Judy Burgio, her former husband Andrew Lustig, and many friends.

A celebration of Lucy’s life will be held at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, 2201 Springdale Ave. at 4 pm Sunday Jan. 7, followed by a potluck celebration.

If you’d like to honor Lucy, make a donation to or Hospice & Palliative Care,  and keep creating your own beautiful, amazing life.

    Joe, Dale, and family… I am so very sorry to learn of your loss of Lucy.

    Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).

    Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences…. John

    My sincere condolences to your family for your loss. God promises to fortify us and hold our hand during difficult times Isaiah 41:10,13. Continue to rely on Him for comfort and strength.

    My deepest sympathy to all of you. Lucy was a very bright light in my life. We were in the same quilting bee in the early ‘90s. Although I did not see her often after that, when we ran into each other her greeting was always with a big smile and the question, “How are YOU.” Always Lucy. Always putting others first. She was an amazing woman who will be missed.
