Janece called and told us Lula had passed away. She certainly fought a long battle and lived a full and wonderful life. She raised a beautiful family. We remember her lovely smile. She truly loved Grass Creek UM Church and served it faithfully until her health declined. She and Fay (Ed's Mom) are almost exactly the same age...Fay turned 101 in Dec. and Lula turned 101 in Jan...quite an accomplishment! Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
