Lucienne Juliet Lauron Runyon Stetson, age 95, of Oak Creek, Colo., died August 2, 2008.

She was born on Feb. 7, 1913, in France, to Maxim and Juliet Lauron. After her father perished in World War I while serving in the French military, Juliet moved with her mother to America in 1920.

Lucienne grew up in and around Oak Creek.

She married James Stetson on Oct. 7, 1931. They had three sons, and early in their marriage made their living raising livestock and delivering milk house to house.

In 1944, they bought a ranch on Yellow Jacket Road and grew their dairy into a profitable business, selling milk to grocery stores. Through hard work and determination, they went from penniless to profitable.

In the late 1940s, Lucienne bought Bell Mercantile in Oak Creek, and operated it for several years. Upon sale of the Mercantile, she got into the business she was most well known for, her Quarter Horse business. She bred and raised championship Quarter Horses, for ranch work, cutting competitions, and show. She was a member of the Quarter Horse Association for many years, and in June 1999 she earned the 40-year cumulative breeding award from AQHA. She not only raised and sold horses, but also rode and competed well, winning many cutting horse competitions on her favorite stud horse, Poco Bimbo.

Lucienne was a wonderful grandmother. She hosted all of them every summer to help put up hay. She taught her grandkids the value of hard work, and they report that she taught them practical things as well. She loved her family fiercely, giving of her time, her resources and herself. In 1976, she escorted her two granddaughters on a two-week trip to France.

Lucienne lost her husband Frank in 1983, and lived alone on the ranch, continuing to raise and sell horses, until a broken hip facilitated her move to Doak Walker Care Center a few years ago.

She is survived by her son, Franklin Stetson and wife Eileen; four grandchildren: Franklin L “Pud” Stetson and his wife Jean, Laura and husband Bill Woods, Jolene and husband Trey Linke, and Jay Stetson and his wife, Tina; nine great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren.

Lucienne was buried in Oak Creek.

She will be missed by her family, friends, and horse buyers near and far.
