Lucille Rupard Mills was born on March 25, 1935, on the family farm in Statesville, NC. Her parents were Doctor Raymond Rupard and Claudia Cass Rupard, and she had one older sister, Corene. Lucille grew up working in the fields with her family raising tobacco. She graduated in 1953 from Union Grove High School and followed her sister Corene to Charlotte to attended King’s Business College. She graduated in 1954 and then worked at Kings College for 13 years as a teacher assistant in Business Machines and Typing and in the college office. She met her late husband Burwell Mills in typing class at Kings. She and Burwell married on June 8, 1957 at her home church in Statesville.
