Lula Holland was born on June 1, 1910, in Fort Gibson, Okla., the daughter of Olly and Mary (Sipes) Sells. Lula married John Melton Holland in Muskogee, on Dec. 6, 1929. This union was blessed with seven children. Lula and John lived in the Manard Community until 1940. Then the family relocated to the Shady Grove community, where together they engaged in farming and ranching.
Lula was a devoted wife, mother and friend. She gardened and took great pleasure in canning foods and preparing them for her family. Cooking was a special gift of Lula's, especially her biscuits, cobblers and pies. Lula also enjoyed quilting. Her greatest treasure in life was her family. She made sure that her home was a welcoming retreat for her family and friends. Her pride and joy was her grandchildren, great– grandchildren and great– great–grandchildren. She loved the time she spent caring for them.
A Baptist by faith, she was a member of Barber Baptist Church. The Lord called Lula home from her many years of labor on Oct. 4, 2011, at her home with her family at her side. Lula was 101 years old. She will be greatly missed by her family and the many friends she has made throughout the years.
Lula is preceded in death by her mother and father; her husband John; two grandchildren, three great–grandchildren, four brothers, and three sisters.
Those left to cherish her memory include her six daughters and one son, Barbara Evelyn Mays of Tulsa, Sharon K. Radford of Hulbert, Betty Louise Jones and husband Floyd of Stilwell, JohnAnn Duvall and husband Charles of Welling, Donzetta Marie Kilpatrick and husband Bill of Hulbert, Mary Geneva Flud of Tulsa, and James Wesley Holland of Tahlequah. She leaves two sisters, Geneva Foster of Tahlequah and Faye Dorris and husband Ralph of Broken Arrow. Her legacy lives on in her 15 grandchildren, 21 great–grandchildren, eight great–great–grandchildren, as well as nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends and loved ones.
