Lula Mary Lundquist

August 4, 1913 — June 14, 2007

After 93 years of service to her family, church and community, Lula Mary Lundquist died at home on 14th of June, 2007.

She worked hard all of her life to provide all she could for her family and will be remembered as one who unselfishly gave of her life helping others. 

She loved to travel and often said her idea of heaven was having a window seat on a Greyhound bus watching the world go by.  After her husband died 33 years ago, she traveled around the United States, and visited Mexico, most of Europe, England, Iceland, Hawaii, and Canada.            

Her favorite pastimes were doing crossword puzzles and scrap booking.            

Mother loved to have a garden and kept a large garden as long as she could and then settled to keep the weeds out of her flower gardens.            

She was a member and an officer in the DUP and gained many friends through her work in this wonderful organization.
