Lucy graduated from Citronelle High School and attended the University of Southern Mississippi. In 1961, she met Dr. John Prine when he began his Family Medical Practice in Citronelle.

They spent a lifetime devoting themselves to numerous church, civic, charitable and professional organizations. Lucy was active in the Mobile County Medical Association Auxiliary, the Mobile and Washington County Junior Miss Scholarship Program, the Band Parents Association and she volunteered countless hours of service for many years at Camp Rap-A-Hope. Lucy was wholly devoted to her family; her son John David and her 11 siblings brought her great joy.
