Wrens, GA – Lucile Newsome Boulineau, 88, loving wife of the late Joseph Myers Boulineau, entered into her eternal rest Thursday evening, February 8, 2018 at Thomson Health and Rehabilitation Center. Funeral services will be held in the James Funeral Home Chapel at 2:00 P.M. Monday afternoon, February 12, 2018, with Rev. Butch Baston officiating.

One of seven children born to the late Pearl Howard Newsome and the late Lum Newsome, Lucile was a lifelong resident of Jefferson County. After dropping out of school in the 7th grade to help out her family, she met and married the love of her life and started her own family. Her first priority in life was to take care of her family and provide a loving home for her children. At the age of 30, she started working as a seamstress, retiring at the age of 65. She loved her Lord and Savior, reading her Bible daily and joining the fellowship of Ways Baptist Church. Lucile enjoyed cooking for her family and crocheting. A fierce competitor, she loved playing Rummy, often until the wee hours of the morning. Her greatest pleasure was her family and was most content and happy in their presence. A devoted wife and loving mother, Lucile had a sweet, gentle spirit and was generous with her time and money, always helping her family and others in need in any way she could. She will be greatly missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing her.
Lucile is also preceded in death by her children, Ronnie Boulineau and Bonnie Forbes; and all of her siblings, Shot Newsome, Ross Newsome, Bud Newsome, Annie Meyers, Essie Gay and Lizzie May. Survivors include her two children, Robert J. Boulineau Sr. (Judy) and Patsy B. McNair (Paul); ten grandchildren, Robert J. Boulineau Jr. (Amanda), Billy Boulineau, Joseph Boulineau, Tabitha Helmly, Kim Boulineau, Angela Brown, Jonathan Brown, Donna Boulineau, April Farrer, and Priscilla Schmidt; 12 great grandchildren; 2 great-great grandchildren; many nieces, nephews and friends. Serving as pallbearers will be Tommy Brown, William May, Jimmy McNair, David Meyers, Junior Newsome and Westy Wells.
Due to the financial burden of a prolonged illness, the family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers memorial contributions be made directly to James Funeral Home, PO Box 588, Wrens, GA 30833.
The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home from 4:00 – 6:00 P.M. Sunday evening, February 11, 2018.
IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW
If you could see me now, you wouldn't shed a tear.
Though you may not understand why I'm no longer there.
Remember my spirit--that is the real me!
Because I'm still very much alive,
I've just been set free.
Oh! If you could only see!
I have beheld our Father's face,
And I've touched my Savior's hand.
All of Heaven's angels rejoices as
I entered the promised land.
Beyond the gates of pearl,
I've walked on the golden streets.
I've touched the walls of jasper and
Dipped my foot in the Crystal Sea.
The beauty is beyond words and
Nothing could compare.
I've evern seen your mansion and
Someday I'll meet you there.
Let Jesus be your guide because
His Word will show you the way!
So, please, don't cry because
We will meet again someday.
