Lula Bell Williams Holden was a dearly loved mother, grandmother, sister-in-law, aunt and friend. She was born in Woods, NC on March 4, 1929 to the late Kinchen and Charity Williams. She entered into eternal rest on February 12, 2019.
She was baptized at the Gillfield Baptist Church in Woods, North Carolina at any early age and remained a member until she moved to Louisburg, North Carolina. She joined First Baptist Church after moving to Louisburg, approximately sixty-one years ago, and remained a faithful member until her health prevented her. She was a member of the Senior Choir, Willing Workers Ministry and Progressive Club where she served as Treasurer.
She spent most of her life being a caregiver to her mother, husband, Godmother and God-brother while working a full-time job at the Yolanda Jones Child Development Center as a Teacher’s Assistant. This did not prevent her from taking care of her grandson so her daughter could finish graduate school. Most importantly, she loved God, cherished family, enjoyed cooking, working in her yard and spending time with her friends.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Thomas Holden, three sisters and eight brothers.
She is survived by: a daughter, Gail Holden-Luckey of Canton, MI; a grandson, Jonovan Luckey of Clinton Township, MI; an adopted daughter, Matoka Crawford (Sylvester) of Alpharetta, GA; three sisters-in-law, Dorothy Jones of Raleigh, NC, Beulah Shaw and Olivia Holden both of Wilmington, DE; a host of endeared nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
