Lucille Ralston has made over 1,016 Memory Teddy Bears since the year 2000.   The bears are made out of clothing
from a deceased loved one.  Lucille has also made many of these Teddy bears for a women's shelter in the
Weatherford, Oklahoma area from old clothes that she no longer wears, and scrap material that others have given to her.
Lucille worked at The Smart Shop, a dress store in Weatherford for 26 years doing alterations for their customers.
