1943 Lula 2018

Lula Kirkman

March 10, 1943 — September 5, 2018

Lula J. Kirkman, 75 of Kearns, Utah passed away September 5, 2018 after a short battle with cancer.  She was born in Moroni, Utah on March 10, 1943 to Morris William and Bessie Sophia Jensen Coombs.  She lived most of her life in Kearns where she worked and raised her family.

She enjoyed volunteering at the Kearns Senior Center where she made many wonderful new friends that she was able to travel with.  She was a member of the Red Hats.  Lula also had great pleasure going to her property in the mountains and watching the wild deer and turkeys wander through without a care that she was even there.  Her grandchildren and great grandchildren brought her such joy.  She was kind and generous and would be the first one to arrive when you were in need.  Lula would even give you her furniture if she thought you needed it, even if it meant she would have none.  She was a big believer in helping others and paying it forward.

“She will truly be missed by many.”

Lula is survived by her four children, Carol (Dennis) Martin, Sheryl Twiss, Richard (Joey) Locker and Lynn (Vicki) Kirkman; twelve grandchildren and three great grandchildren; two brothers, Mark (ReNae) Coombs, Gordon (Tushain) Everts and one sister, Inez Clayton.

Preceded in death by her husband, Blaine Kirkman; father, Morris; mother, Bessie; step father, Adolph; brother, Jimmy and

grandson Cortney.

There will be a small graveside service Thursday September 13, 2018, 3:00 pm at Camp Williams Veterans Memorial Park, 17111 1700 W, Bluffdale.  A celebration of life will be held Saturday September 15, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Kearns Senior Center, 4851 West 4715 South where family and friends may join to share in the celebration of Lula’s life.
