Luella was well known in the community and called Grandma by many. She enjoyed spending time with her friends at McDonald’s, Hyvee, card club and bingo. She loved people and went out of her way to help others, often buying the kids meal at McDonald’s just to have a toy to give to a little boy or girl. Some of her favorite times were spent snuggling with her great-grandson Kayden and fishing. She even caught a large Northern this last fall. Luella also enjoyed playing cards, flipping quarters, music, making “scrubbies” and time spent with friends and family. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church.
