REFUGIO – Elizabeth Lucille Jordan Selle, 89, of Hondo, formerly of Refugio, died Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012.

She was born May 1, 1923, in Vernon, to James Henry and Effie Lee (Clark) Jordan.

Lucille spent her early life in San Marcos, where her family owned a hotel and resort on the San Marcos River. They later owned a farm in Dilley and settled in Poteet, where she graduated from high school. During WWII, she worked as a driver at Kelly AFB, transporting dignitaries and wounded soldiers.

Later, she operated a restaurant in Poteet. But her fondest memories of her working years came from her time spent as a nursing assistant.

Survivors include her daughter, Janet Zerr and husband Marc of Hondo; two sons, Robert Autry and wife Rebecca of Seminole and Ronald Autry and wife Shirley of Victoria; and six grandchildren
