To plant a memorial tree in honor of Verleen Lenora "Tuffi" Lacey, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Tuffi was born on October 3rd, 1947 in Laurel, MT to Elizabeth (Krug) McLaughlin and Clarence McLaughlin. She married Robert Lacey on December 17th 1967. They raised three children together, Jeremy, Shawn and Lisa.
Tuffi was loved by everyone she met. She was kind, caring and always full of life. She could light up any room with her infectious smile or her quick wit. She lived to help others and enjoyed volunteering. She was very involved with her church and many other groups in her community. We all know she was never able to pass up a bargain at a garage sale, and she never seemed to leave without a candle or a new friend. Tuffi was well known for her kind and compassionate spirit.
Tuffi was preceded in death by her father Clarence, her mother Elizabeth, and her sister Lonita. She is survived by her husband Robert, her three children, Jeremy, Shawn (Margie), Lisa (Rodney), her sister Marlisse, her brother John, her grandchildren, Skyler (Alli), Emily, Marcus, Jordan, Bronté and Brittany, her great grandchildren, Harleigh, Lukas, Owen and Kingston as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
