Lucille Randon grew up in a Christian Protestant family. He had three other brothers. They lived in Els, France. Lucille Randon gave an interview to AFP on her 116th birthday. At that time he talked about his family. He said that the best moment of his life came in 1918. That year his two brothers came home from World War I together. He also reported that most of the men who went to war lost their lives. But his two brothers came back together.

A spokeswoman for the nursing home where Lucille lived said she often spoke of her brothers and hoped to see them again after she died.
