She never attended nursing school but received her LPN license in 1972. Lula was a wonderful and loving mom and grandma and loved to be with her family especially during the holidays. She was an active member of St. Raphael’s Catholic Church and loved to volunteer at St. John Lutheran Home. Lula loved to can (a little of everything), sew, crochet, garden, and going to rummage sales and auctions, and listening to KNUJ radio. She enjoyed baking, especially around Christmas time when she made dozens of assorted cookies and the whole family would bring their containers to fill. She also loved to fish bullheads with Alfred, but they always fished out of separate boats because Alfred fished northerns and then he was always there to pull her boat out if she got stuck.

She is survived by her children Betty (Dave) Frost, Mary (Ron) Mathiowetz, and Carol (John) German; 6 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren; and nieces and nephews.
