    (1963-September 22, 2009)
    Born in Weybridge, England, United Kingdom
    Birth name was Lucy O'Donnell
    Elementary school classmate of Julian Lennon
    Picture of her drawn by Julian inspired the Beatles song 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' (1967)
    Ran a nanny agency as an adult
    Died of complications from lupus at 46
    Before she went public as the original 'Lucy,' there was speculation that the song was inspired by Lucy Richardson, an older student at the same school, or by Peter Cook's daughter.
    When she told friends she was the subject of the song and they replied that it was about LSD, 'I was too embarrassed to tell them that I didn’t know what LSD was.'
    She never liked the song she inspired, saying 'I don’t see a four-year-old kid running around with kaleidoscopic eyes. It doesn’t make sense.'
    She married her childhood sweetheart.
    She worked with special needs children.
    After learning of her illness, Julian Lennon sent her a personally written card and gift certificates to a garden center, since she found solace from the disease in gardening.
    She died two days into her first vacation in eight years.
