Harvetta Lucas passed away August 6, 2018 at WilMed Hospital in Wilson, North Carolina following a courageous fight with cancer.
Harvetta was born December 29, 1963 in Columbus, Georgia, where she was also raised.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Harvey and Annie Ruth Lucas, and her loving pet and companion, Major Lucas.
She graduated High School at Hardaway High and earned her Bachelor's in Criminal Justice at Columbus State University.
She was a faithful member of Truth Tabernacle Ministries where she sang in the choir even when her health declined. She loved her church family and pastors.
She worked briefly at Tri-County Industries and OIC Family Medical Center. She was an honorary member of Project Hope Ministries Community Outreach Ministry in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. She loved helping others and seeing their lives changed for the better. Her life was filled with the Joy of the Lord, when in conversation with her, in spite of her illness, she would let you know “I believe God for my healing”. Her presence, humor and love will be greatly missed but we are confident that she is with the Lord.
She is survived by her son Joie Lucas (Alexis) of Charleston, SC; her daughter Javohnia Lucas of the home; granddaughter, Jada Lucas of Columbia, SC, her spiritual parents, Everett and Shirley Yates and her life- long friend, Lorie Daniels of Fort Washington, MD and also a host of nieces, nephews, friends, coworkers, doctors, and extended family.

Celebrating the life of Ms. Harvetta Lucas
Thank you for signing Ms. Harvetta Lucas's Guestbook
I am sorry to hear about the death of Ms. Lucas. Death is a tragic event that we all have to bear. We miss spending time with our love ones. We may even become downhearted and depressed. Fortunately, we have Acts 24:15 to look forward to stating that there will be a resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous. God’s promises always come true. Wishing the family well.

Dear Lucas Family,
I am very sorry for your loss. Maybe at a less stressful time, look in your copy of the Bible in Acts 24:15. There it mentions''... a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." This is happen on the earth. I hope this offers comfort for you and your family. For more information, please go to www.JW.org. and look up "Hope for our loved ones".
