Who is Lucille in The Walking Dead?

The comic books on which the AMC TV series is based offered further insight into this character and it gave readers an explanation as to why Negan was the way he was.
Lucille was diagnosed with cancer prior to the zombie apocalypse. However, as she got sicker, the outbreak occurred. Negan watched her die in hospital but was unable to put her down himself after she reanimated and had to get someone else to do it.
In the TV series, a little more detail beyond that has already been given. Negan previously explained to Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) about his wife, disclosing that she died of pancreatic cancer. He also admitted to having been cheating on her prior to her death.
