Luella was always thinking of others and spent much of her time volunteering, care giving for her parents & doing activities with her grandchildren & great grandchildren.
She was born in Woodland Washington, the first child of Opal & Charlie Nothiger. 1932 was a challenging time in history, Charlie never lacked for work but his skills took him on the road for several years. He helped build the roads & bridges we drive today throughout Oregon and Washington. His family moved with him as the construction projects were finished. Luella often told of all the schools she attended in her younger years. She learned to be self-reliant & also helped her mom & younger brothers navigate their new “homes.” Luella felt most at home when they settled on acreage in Sweet Home, Oregon. She graduated from Sweet Home High School and her first job was night shift telephone operator in the days of party lines & wires she plugged in to connect the parties. She met Richard, the love of her life, in Sweet Home.
Luella raised her family, worked hard and she always made time for others in need. Her sense of humor came through often with family and friends. Her greatest joy was her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Family, Faith & Country defined her life. She will be loved and fondly remembered by all who knew her. Till we meet again.
