Lucinda and her daughter, Lily showed up in Oakdale after Lucinda's husband committed suicide. Lucinda blamed Whit McColl and was out to get his prize possession: his newspaper. Lucinda entered Oakdale like a tornado and was determined to make her way. She decided she wanted a seat on the hospital board, and went after John Dixon's spot.
It was later revealed that Sierra Estaban, who she said was her Goddaughter, was actually her biological daughter. Lucinda's name was Mary Ellen Walters. She married Jacobo Estaban from Montega. During her marriage, she found herself in love with another man. Upon learning the truth of an affair, Jacobo had her put out of Montega for good, leaving Sierra behind. Later, the truth came out, and after a while, Sierra accepted Lucinda, who had changed her name from Mary Ellen when she was kicked out of Montega.
When she left Montega, she met and fell in love with Martin Guest. Lucinda and Martin adopted Lily. Lucinda learned that Lily's adoption was not legal. Upon confronting Martin over the situation, Martin killed himself. Lucinda then married James Walsh. He was a very wealthy businessman who knew how to control his money. When he died, Lucinda bought his company without his son even knowing about it.
Once in Oakdale, Lily eventually learned Lucinda's real mother was Iva Snyder. The sister of the man she was in love with. Lucinda and Iva agreed that she shouldn't know, but it was soon exposed. Worried that Lily was dating her uncle, Emma eased everyone's worries when she confessed that Iva was adopted as well. Holden and Lily were free to date and later marry. Lily also found out later she had a twin sister named Rose D'Angelo. When Rose came to Oakdale, the sisters immediately bonded.
Lucinda married John Dixon. He had a son named Duke from a previous marriage. Duke didn't like Lucinda and she didn't like him. She even went as far as hiring someone to run him out of town. When John found out about this, he confronted Lucinda with a divorce. She reluctantly signed the papers, knowing that she was the only one to blame. Lucinda finally realized that she needed to become more compassionate to others, so she made the decision to change.
Ethan Walsh came in and stole his father's business back. Lucinda founded WorldWide Enterprises later and made it a success.
Lucinda actually did lose her business in 1990, when Connor and Evan Walsh stole Walsh Enterprises right from under her. Not one to lie down and die, Lucinda started up WorldWide Enterprises. In 1993, Lucinda learned that Royce Keller and Neal Alcott were the children of her mother and George Keller. Unfortunately, Neal (who was good friends with Lucinda) was murdered before Lucinda learned they were sisters. She then found another half-sister, Samantha Markham, who had been separated from Royce at birth. Though initially suspicious of Sam, Lucinda eventually came to accept her in the family.
Lucinda later discovered that she had a lump in her breast. She tried to hide it from her daughters, only confiding in Meg Snyder who was a nurse. Sierra and Lily finally pieced it together when Lucinda kept going out of town. They confronted their mother and vowed to help her through it all. Lucinda reluctantly accepted their support but wanted them to remain at a distance so she wouldn't feel smothered, but still in control. She defeated her cancer and is now in remission.
Since her remission, Lucinda has spent her time focusing on her grandson, Lily's son Luke. She supported him through his alcoholism and through his coming out of the closet. She later saved Luke from his biological father, Damian Grimaldi, who was scheming to get Luke to leave Oakdale with him.
With Luke's crises at bay, she turned her attention to Katie Peretti, helping Katie's book, Oakdale Confidential: Secrets Revealed, see publication.
Most recently Lucinda has been battling in the board room, having lost Worldwide Enterprises to longtime nemesis, Craig Montgomery, who later turned the company over to his wife, Meg. Lucinda is often seen lurking around Craig when he's at his most vulnerable, or trying to convince Meg to give the company back to her.
Over the years, Lucinda has become a wonderful mother, a devoted grandmother to six children: Sierra's two, Bryant and Lucy and Lily's children, Luke, Faith, Natalie and Ethan. She has calmed down quite a bit and is known for her sound advice, and she is direct to the point. If her kids have learned anything from their mother, it would be to never give up.
Lucinda was happy when Meg and Paul came up with a plan to wrest Worldwide from Craig Montgomery but the plan fell through. Eventually, Meg gave the company to Paul, who tried to sell it to Lucinda for money but she wouldn't buy it. She helped Luke start a foundation with money from Damian and brought Brian Wheatley to town to run it.

"You're off the hook," she says. She and John leave. Lily and Holden don't know if that was real. She worries about her mom getting involved with John again.
