Nona 'Cookie' Lucas
Nona "Cookie" Lucas of Scappoose, Oregon passed away on October 15th, 2020, in a hospice care facility in Longview, Washington, at the age of 69.
She was born February 15, 1951, in Portland Oregon. Nona graduated from Roosevelt High School.
She was a Scappoose resident for over 30 years.
Nona worked as a driver for Knapton Tug and Barge for several years before taking a courier position for Kaiser Permanente where she delivered important medical information for over 18 years. She transferred to medical records before she finally retired.
Her favorite hobby was fishing. Taught by her dad and her uncle, she was always looking to get her line wet. She was an avid fisherman who would fish whenever she could for most of the year. Her favorite fishing was for sturgeon on the Columbia River. With rod in hand and a blanket for warmth, she would reel in sturgeon most days she fished.
Nona is survived by her husband, Gene Lucas of Scappoose, Oregon; and her sons, Scott Higgs of Rockaway Beach, Oregon and Ivan Higgs of Scappoose, Oregon. She has four step kids, Jody, Carey, Ray and Jake; nine grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
