She went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at AMITA Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet, Illinois. Mother Lula accepted Christ at an early age and attended Church with her parents at First Missionary Baptist Church, 12th Street in Cairo, Illinois. She united in Holy Matrimony to George King on September 9, 1951. After relocating to Joliet, Illinois she united with Second Baptist Church in Joliet. She remained a faithful and dedicated member serving in the kitchen and any where she was needed, until her health began to fail.
