Lula Bette Wade

March 20, 2021 — May 7, 2022

Lula Bette Wade, beloved daughter of Matt and Erica Wade, of Bullock, died peacefully in her home on May 6th, 2022. She returned to her Heavenly Father as her parents sang hymns and prayers over her. Lula was 13 months old.

Lula was curious and smart. She had a great sense of humor, often tricking nurses and playing games of wit with her parents. Most notably though, she was joyful. Lula’s giggle and wide, gummy grin warmed the hearts of many and were present even in her last hours.

In addition to her parents Lula is survived by her older sister, Maisel; her maternal grandparents, Chris and Ruth Reid; her paternal grandparents, Rick and Terri Wade; and, her expansive extended and chosen family.

A service will be held at Tabb's Creek Baptist Church at 2:00 PM Tuesday, May 10th, 2022, by Reverend Lindsey Williams. A visitation will be held in the fellowship hall immediately following the service. 

The Wade family is proudly being served by Gentry-Newell & Vaughan Funeral Home, 503 College St., Oxford, NC, 27565.
