Lualla (Adkins) Hudnall was born in Collinsville, Oklahoma on September 17, 1924 to Lon and Lillie Mae (Bolin) Adkins. She was reared and educated in Owasso. She finished her high school in California. In 1955 she married Joseph Charles “J.C.” Hudnall in a Brownville, Texas ceremony and the couple made their home in several places due to J.C.’s military career. He passed away on 1977 and Lualla moved to Claremore to be near family.
A kind and loving person, Lualla enjoyed helping people. She loved to work in her yard and could spend all day making it beautiful. When she would ask for help, you better be prepared to work just as hard as she. Lualla took drives in the country just to see the sights, she was always up and going. Her church was very important and attended every chance she could.
Those family members that survive include her daughter Barbara Barbee and husband Ed of Catoosa; 12 grandchildren; 14 great grandchildren and 4 great-great grandchildren; her sisters Bessie Bridges of Tulsa; Della Williams and Darlene McManis both of Claremore. Lualla was preceded in death by her parents, husband J.C., her daughter Pat Barnell and her sisters Ada Poyner, Essie Cates, Ruby Clark and Bernice Adkins.
