Lucy Josephine Sprain passed away on March 25, 2015 after an illness. She was the beloved daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Sprain (Bebe and Robert); devoted sister of Katherine Theresa Sprain, Mary Evelyn Sprain, and Marguerite Alice Sprain. Lucy was the granddaughter of Mrs. Robert Henry Sprain and the late Mr. Sprain; and of Mrs. Eugene Alexander Bromberg and the late Mr. Bromberg. She is survived by many aunts and uncles who are all greatly saddened by her loss.

Born on September 16, 1992, Lucy was a native of Birmingham, Alabama. She was a member of St. Francis Xavier Church where she had received the Sacraments. Father John McDonald attended her on the evening of her passing, and administered all of the Last Rites of the Church.

Lucy was a student at Birmingham- Southern College where she had been a member of Kappa Delta. She graduated from Mountain Brook High School and Mountain Brook Junior High School. Lucy attended the Joseph S. Bruno Montessori Academy, founded by her grandmother, and finished her primary education at Crestline School. She had travelled with her grandmother Theresa in Spain, and spent a college term in Italy where she studied art. At Birmingham-Southern, Lucy was a member of the Stump Entrepreneurship Scholars Program, the only woman chosen for this honor in her class. The program recognizes the cultivation of the college's mission through business ability and public responsibility. She was active in campus life and served as a Homecoming coordinator. Her imaginative presentation for the campus theme "The Game of Life" won first prize.

Lucy was presented by the Holiday Assembly and was a Birmingham Belle. She was presented at the Beaux Arts Krewe Ball and at the Ball of Roses in 2014. Lucy was known for her sweetness and kindness to her many cousins, and she will be greatly missed.

Lucy's life-saving donations after her passing are given as a sharing of the love of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and her family feel blessed that she has been able to give these gifts. Those wishing to remember Lucy may want to consider the Alabama Organ Center, or St. Francis Xavier Church, or the Birmingham Museum of Art.
