Additional Notes:  

Found some additional information in Ancestry's U.S. School Yearbooks 1900-1999 Collection. Looks like Lucille attended University of Wisconsin.  She appears on page 148 of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's 1921 Yearbook. I'd love to read her thesis.  

The other surviving daughter mentioned in the obituary is Mary Madeline Stanley, wife of Howard Ashley "Ted" Bailey.
