Amelia A. Lucas, 69, an employe of the Federal Trade Commission for more than 35 years and top amateur golfer, died at Prince George's General Hospital in Cheverly Saturday following a stroke.
Mrs. Lucas was born in Nanjemoy, Md. She grew up in Washington and graduated from Howard University in 1934. She went to work for the FTC shortly thereafter and remained with the agency until she retired in 1972.
She was a member of the Wake Robins Golf Club in Washington and was a member of the volunteer committee for the Lee Elder Celebrity Pro-Am Golf Tournment. She was returning to her home in Washington from a game of golf at the Enterprise Golf and Country Club in Largo last Saturday when she was stricken.
Mrs. Lucas won the senior women's division of the National Negro Golf Championship in 1969, the 11th annual George Urquhart memorial golf tournament in Miami, Fla., in 1971, of the Keystone Open in Philadelphia in 1976 and of the International golf tournament in Acapulco, Mexico, also in 1976. She also was a member of the championship A Team of the Eastern Golf Association in 1962. She held numerous other titles.
Her husband, Harry Lucas, died in 1949.
Survivors include a brother, William H. Gaines Jr., of Washington.
