Aftercare at LRC - Meet the LRL

In this post, we'll discuss the Lake Ridge Ladies group and let you read from others the impact it has had on their lives.


At Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers, our greatest desire is to walk with you through every step of celebrating the life of the ones you love. It is our privilege to be able to care for Lubbock by using our services to help design memorial services that reflect and celebrate the unique and well-lived lives of our community members.

But our calling doesn't end with the crafting of distinguished services. We want to continue to care and serve the people we come in contact with as they continue their journey through healing, grieving, and remembering. One of the ways we are doing that is through our Lake Ridge Ladies support group.


Lake Ridge Ladies program is an aftercare service we provide for widowed women. Our group began in 2014 with only three or four women, and since then has grown to serve over 700 women with about 100-120 active members. Lake Ridge Ladies is led by Gayle Severe who knows and understands what it means to walk through the process of grieving, healing, accepting, and embracing a life that is new and unfamiliar.

The Ladies meet several times a month for dinners, games, and outings. In addition to sharing good times, the group aims to also walk with each other in times of pain, difficulty, and sickness. This beloved group has become a vast network of women who support, understand, and love one another.

Don't walk your journey alone. The Lake Ridge Ladies would like to extend a warm and compassionate invitation to any woman who would love to find real friendship, enjoy fun evenings and outings, and care for each other in this wonderful group. For more information, call Gayle Severe at (806)535-9323, or visit the group’s Facebook page.



"Lake Ridge Chapel Staff, Lake Ridge Ladies and Gayle Severe,
So many words of heartfelt thanks for all your gestures of love and support during mom’s illness and death. The many visits, beautiful flowers, gentle hugs, words of remembrance at the service, and tender care and presence at the funeral home meant the world to our family. Thank you also for all the fun memories, friendships, dinners, trips and fellowship of love you shared with her in the last few years. You are loved by us because you loved her so well." - Traci Burnett and Shirley Parker Family

"Thank you, Santos, for your grief class and for the Lake Ridge Ladies and for the services for the widows. There is more than one way to save lives, and you do it every day!" - Terry Anderson

There are so many awesome things about Santos and Lake Ridge Chapel. He truly cares about each and everyone he meets. His staff is beyond compare. They are so professional and attuned to your every need. Santos and his beautiful wife, Valerie, are like family to us. There are not enough words to tell you why you should let them take care of your needs when the time comes. The Chapel is beautiful, and any special requests you have will be granted, if at all possible! As for the aftercare, you will never find any comparable this amazing place offers! Lake Ridge Ladies is overseen by Gayle Severe, and her heart is truly open to all of us. We have made so many friends who have our backs and understand where we are, at this time of our life. Sorry this is so long but my heart is so full with this wonderful group of people!” - Diane
