Ms. Harvetta  Lucas



Wilson, NC

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.
