Lucile Huey was born 26 October 1911 in Georgia to Lena Varn and L. M. Huey. She was a graduate of the Wesleyan (Macon, GA) and Cincinnati conservatories of music. Per a portion of her epitaph, it seems Lucile was a gifted classical music singer -
Like a velvet note in a flood of tone,Her rich contralto voiceFloated into the Choir Invisible.
When Lucile was 22 years of age, she married Georgia Tech graduate William Edward Vinson (1908-1982). He was connected with the Ford Motor Company plant in Atlanta, and the young couple made that city their home.
Lucile and William had been married about 13 months when she made a fatal decision to drink carbolic acid on a summer morning in July 1935. Lucile died that same evening at the Georgia Baptist Hospital. Her death certificate deemed the "injury" a suicide.
