Margaret “Honey” Lucas nee D’Autilio, age 87, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 16, 2019 in her home on Pleasant Street where she lived her entire life. Honey was born May 17, 1932 at Greenwich Hospital to Jennie (nee Perry) and Pasquale D’Autilio, and was a lifelong resident of Cos Cob. In her thirties, she learned to love golf and could often be found on the course with the ladies at Hubbard Heights or Bruce Golf Course, looking for the elusive hole in one. Honey was one of a kind, finding joy in helping others. She loved her family, cherished her time with her grand and great-grand-children and socialized often with her many long-time friends. She was married for over 50-years to pre-deceased William John Lucas, also of Greenwich. Honey was a long time parishioner of St. Catherine’s beginning with Baptism, Marriage and now her final Burial Mass. Honey is survived by her daughter and son-in-laws Joseph and Janet Lucas Panaro of Greenwich and Dwight and Linda Lucas Danielson of Florida; Grand-daughters Jennifer Anderson (nee Panaro) of Fairfield, Alyson Panaro of Fairfield, Keri Danielson of California and Kelly Danielson of Southbury; great grand-children Addison, Rand “Luke” and Hayden Anderson of Fairfield, and Lily Danielson of California; and nephews Richard and Robert D’Autilio. She was pre-deceased by nephew Joseph D’Autilio. Family, friends and others whose lives Honey touched are invited to St. Catherine’s of Sienna in Riverside at 11am on Friday, December 27th for a burial mass.
