January 19, 1939 ~ January 21, 2019

Born in: Long Branch , TX
Resided in: Long Branch , TX

God touched the lives of Ulysses and Wife Annie Mae Smith and blessed them with an infant girl on January 19, 1939, and the breath of life was breathed into this baby girl whom they named Lula Mae Smith.  The smith family experienced the joy that all parents do in watching their babies grow up, as Lula Mae began to grow up and develop her own character and personality, talking and walking, and playing with her brothers and sisters which surrounded her with love, it was soon time for Lula to go to school.  This would be something Lula Mae would experience and truly love.  At the same time, Lula Mae displayed a love for the Lord at young age, attending church with her family; she was baptized and accepted the Lord as her Savior.

As she excelled through her educational journey, her grades and accomplishments showed her love for learning. She also started to show that she had a great love and talent for basketball. She played basketball constantly and it showed in how she mastered the sport by her ability to be a great competitor, showing good sportsmanship to teammates and opponents. Thinking and being fast on her feet was always on display, Lula played the position of guard and was elected team captain for three years in a row.  She graduated and received her diploma from Mined High School on May 22, 1957.

On April 22,1957, Lula would meet her husband to be at the class banquet.  In her own words, she explains, “I went with Mr. Mose Reedy to the dance, it was the most exciting enjoyable, inciting coincident that could have passed through my life too fantastic for words.”  Mr. Mose Reedy did not just pass through, Lula Mae’s life, he had come to stay.  The two were united in marriage on Dec 13, 1958 in Long Branch, Texas.  Soon after they moved to Chicago, where they lived for one year and decided to move to Denver, Colorado on January 19, 1960. In Denver is where they made their home. This would be the place where they would raise the seven children that God blessed them with, five girls and two boys, Patricia, Sheila, Franklin, Yolanda, LaFreda, Itasca and Vincent.

Lula Mae was a home maker, choosing to stay at home with the children making sure their childhood was filled with love laughter, and protection, teaching them to love the Lord as she did, teaching them to always be respectful, honest, and all the other essentials of life.

After raising their children, Lula Mae ventured out into the work world, to work for others.  Then she decided to open her own business under the name of Lula’s Janitorial.  Lula ran Lula’s janitorial for 14 years until she retired. After retirement, she moved back to her beginnings, Texas. There she would answer the call of family and friends when there was a need for help of any kind.

Lula attended church, enjoying the rivals planning, and what she would cook to bring months ahead of time. Cooking was something she loved to do. Her favorite was peach cobbler.

She also loved spending time with her friends.  She was often home in Colorado for holidays and family events. She enjoyed being outdoors and loved the fresh air Texas seem to bring.  One of the perfect places she enjoyed was on her front porch bench.  Often times you could find her reading and meditating in the Word, just spending time with her Lord and savior.

On April 15, 1992, Lula Mae’s love of thirty -four years, Mose Reedy, passed away peacefully and has been truly missed by all.

On January 21, 2019, God has called Lula Mae Reedy home to him where there is no more, crying no more dying, no more pain, no more sorrow, but hope, and gladness and a brighter tomorrow for we know we will all be together again someday. We love you mom you will greatly missed. We thank God for giving you to us and all the sweet memories of compassion and love you showed to all that had the pleasure of walking this life with you and you will before ever in our hearts.

She is survived by all that cherished her memory.

  1. To the Family and Friends of : Lula Mae Reedy

    Please allow me to express my condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. The pain and sorrow experienced during this difficult time can be overwhelming. However, I am often comforted by the words found in God’s word, the Bible. For instance, when grieving the loss of his dear friend Lazarus, the Bible reports that “Jesus gave way to tears.” (John 11:35). What is even more comforting is the fact that Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead, and so like Mary and Martha, Lazarus’ sisters, the Bible expresses the hope of the resurrection whereby we may see our loved ones again. (Read John 11:38-44; 5:28, 29). What a marvelous hope.

    May Jehovah God grant you peace during this time and provide comfort for you and your loved ones.

  2. To the Reedy family:
    On behalf of the Hawkins family, please accept our heartfelt and sincere condolences at this most difficult time. May God bless you all and give you strength in the days to come.

  3. To the Family of Lula Mae Reedy:

    Our hearts were sadden to hear of the loss of Lula Mae, your beloved Mother, Aunt, Sister, and Grandmother. As you reflect on the many memories that have been formed, may you find comfort in those precious memories. Think about all of the things that she taught you and that you still even recall all of her “words of wisdom.” Those memories will bring you comfort and you will treasure and even pass them onto your children. As you mourn the loss of Mrs. Reedy may you find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God will give you comfort to endure your loss, it is found at 2 Corinthians 1:3-5.

    During the time of the loss of a loved one many may ask, “will I ever see her or them again?” Rest assured that Our Grand Creator has promised that we will. He even gave us examples of those that were raised from the dead, back to life here on the earth. One that you are familiar with is that of the resurrection of Lazarus. Jesus had brought Lazarus back to life after he had been dead for 4 days. Please read the account in your own bible at John 11:23-44, it will bring you comfort in knowing that we will see our loved ones again, right here on the earth, just like Lazarus was resurrected. Notice the promise that Jesus gave you and I at John 5:28 & 29. How exciting to know that soon “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” There was a total of 9 resurrections that were recorded in the bible for you and I to have faith that the resurrection will take place. Here are the scriptures of where they are recorded in the bible: The other accounts are found at 1 Kings 17:17-24; 2 Kings 4:32-37; 13:20, 21; Matthew 28:5-7; Luke 7:11-17; 8:40-56; Acts 9:36-42; and 20:7-12. Please click on the link to watch a brief bible video of the promise that Jesus made (https://www.jw.org/en/publications/videos/#en/mediaitems/VODMinistryTeachings/docid-502017858_1_VIDEO ), it will bring you comfort. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
