Background
Lucile Lomen was born in Nome, Alaska on August 21, 1920, the second of five children of Alfred and Mildred (nee Lehmann) Lomen. At least partially inspired by her grandfather, Gudbran J. Lomen, as a young girl, she decided that she wanted to become a lawyer. Her family moved to Seattle in 1934, where she graduated from Queen Anne High School in 1937. She was awarded a one-year scholarship to Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, which she attended and from which she graduated with honors in 1941. Upon her graduation from the University of Washington Law School in 1944, she was elected to the Order of the Coif.
