The story of compassion, love, strength and victory was the life Luella lived.

She had also been a member of St. John Missionary Full Gospel Baptist Church, Meadville. She was very well known in her community as 'Ms. Pope, Auntie, Ms. Luella, and most of us knew her as Momma'. She opened her home to many, always with great hospitality saying 'come on in, sit down, and can I get you something to eat'. She loved children, but had a special place in her heart for 'babies'. She was a great cook, well known for her 'chicken and dressing and sweet tea'.
