Lucy Hafelfinger arrived at Northwest College as a freshman in the fall of 1963 from Emmett, Idaho. She graduated in the spring of 1967 with a degree in Christian Education. During her four years at NU, she was very active in the Music Department. She sang and ministered every year with the Concert Choir, as well as participating in musical ministry and outreach groups on the weekends. Through the years since college, Lucy has been involved in music ministry in churches. For many years, she was the Director of Music for a large southern California church.
Lucy has been an active part or our 60's
Alumni reunions, since attending the 2002 gathering in Molalla, Oregon.
At the Molalla reunion, after pressure from her peers, she
reluctantly came to the keyboard to sing and play an off-the-cuff
rendition of the Andrae Crouch song "My
Tribute". Click the song title to hear that recording
from September 7, 2002.
Lucy's husband, Gary, passed away in Wenatchee, WA on August 7, 2013
