Lula Belle Gullett, a long time resident of Oklahoma City, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 30, 2021. Lula was born in La Junta, CO. on March 8th, 1924 to Henry and Delphia Gimmey. Her family soon moved to Oklahoma where she grew up. Lula met her Lord in 1946 when He radically changed her life. She spent her life ‘being the witness’ of God’s goodness and mercy. She would always find an opportunity to testify to anyone who had an ear to hear, how the Lord wonderfully transformed her life and gave her peace and assurance in a sinful world. She once said ‘I never meet a stranger’ and all that ever met her, would be inclined to agree. Lula was always a very loving, compassionate and caring person to all who met her and all that knew her loved her dearly. Lula lived a life of service, serving her family, her country, the church, and the public: she served café patrons as a waitress; worked on C-47 aircraft at Tinker AFB during WWII as one of the ‘Rosie the Riveters’; enjoyed a career assembling and testing telephone switches at Western Electric Co. where she retired after 20 years of employment; taught Sunday School classes and enriched the lives of nursing home residents. Lula was an extraordinary lady, a saint who shared God’s love and hope for all. She was kind and helpful to the stranger, a comfort and encouragement to her friends, a mentor and pillar of strength to her family. She was one of the finest examples of Christianity and an icon of thoughtfulness. Lula’s life was her testimony to the world and she will be long remembered and cherished for her selflessness and charity. Lula was preceded by her husband of 58 years, Alden E. Gullett (1921-2004); daughter Janice S. Manus (1942-2009); and daughter (Lynda) Raelene Pruitt (1952-2017). She is survived by brother Henry (Ray) Gimmey (1933); daughter Theresa L. Hix (1941), son Ronald F. Gullett (1948), eight grandchildren, nineteen great grandchildren, and eight great-great grandchildren. Our loss is definitely heaven’s gain as, no doubt, she is still being a witness to her Savior’s fulfilling love.

Lula was such a special soul. I "adopted" her as a grandmother when I first met her about 7-8 years ago. Sad to say I didn't keep up with her like I should have. What a beautiful, Godly woman. I have to smile because I know, even a few years ago when I last spoke to her, that she was looking forward to going home to be with Jesus and I know that she is dancing and celebrating now. Love you always Ms. Lula. Thank you for loving me too.
