Luella M. Holle, age 98, of Dudleytown, passed away peacefully on Sunday afternoon, June 30, 2024, at Forest Path of the Lutheran Community Home, Seymour.

Born in Dudleytown on June 21, 1926, Luella was the daughter of the late William and Anna (Wehrkamp) Bobb. Mrs. Holle was a lifelong member of Emanuel Lutheran Church, Dudleytown, where she was baptized, attended school, confirmed her faith, and married her beloved husband Virgil Holle on September 24, 1950. They were married for 62 glorious years. Luella was a member of the LWML, Ladies Aide, and held various offices. She sang in the church choir, would regularly visit shut-ins and listened to “Know your bible” every morning on the radio. Luella had a very strong Lutheran faith and would faithfully attend church. Luella loved to witness and spread her love of God to her family, friends, and neighbors.

Luella worked at the Excello shirt factory in Seymour for seven years, then for 34 years she worked at Hulda’s Cafe under four different owners. She was a Farm Bureau pet and hobby leader and a caregiver for a few of her family members. During retirement, Luella and her husband Virgil could be found outside working with the lawn.

Luella cherished her family dearly. She loved visiting with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She always made sure you never left thirsty or hungry. She was a very sweet, thoughtful, and loving person. You could always expect to be given many hugs and compliments.
