CAMBRIDGE — Lucille “Lucy” E. Nottestad, 96, of Cambridge, passed away on Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019.
Lucy was born on Aug. 20, 1923, in Farmington, to Herb and Meta (Biederman) Staude.
Lucy married Howard Nottestad on June 20, 1948.
She had various jobs throughout her life but enjoyed working on the family farm the most.
Lucy enjoyed watching her sons, grandsons and great-grandson race cars at local tracks. She followed the Milwaukee Brewers and Bucks.
She traveled to many places in her lifetime, attended various NASCAR races and went river rafting in Idaho numerous times.
Lucy loved her farm and especially mowing lawn.
She always was involved with family and loved her family time. She was proud of playing the bass fiddle and singing on the radio with her sisters.
Lucy bowled until the age of 92 and was the past president of various leagues. She always was eager to play a game of euchre. Although it’s hard to guess how many games she played, we roughly would guess at least 10,000.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Howard; parents; in-laws, Harold and Tilla Nottestad; and siblings, Lorraine Larson and Lois Bendall.
