July 28, 1926 - November 16, 2021
Lula Ellen Hess, 95 of Siloam Springs, Arkansas died November 16, 2021, at Siloam Springs Nursing Home. She was born July 28, 1926, in Leach, Oklahoma to Robert Earl Coppedge and Mami Elena Ellen Mahan. Lula lived most of her life in NE Oklahoma and NW Arkansas. Like so many of her generation, life wasn’t always easy. She learned to work and like to at an early age. She wasn’t afraid to try any job or task. She loved to crochet, cook, and take something needing attention, like an older house or furniture and make them look new. But her passion was taking care of her family, making sure they knew they were loved and provided for. In her early 50’s she stopped working outside of the home and devoted all her time to taking care of others for the next 40 years, always putting others before herself even in her final days. You could always call mom, grandma, granny, Lula with any problem and she would be there. Never judging, always loving, and helping. Her passing leaves a void that we can only fill with all the memories and love she left us with. For the last year she would sometimes say “take me home, this isn’t my home”. She knew there was something special waiting for her. She is home now. She is with the lord and all her family and friends that have passed. She is happy, at peace and can’t wait to greet the rest of us. God bless her. She is preceded in death by parents; husband James D. Hess (Pop); brothers, Roy, Edward, Edgar Lee, Floyd, Delano, and Robert; sisters, Stella, Velma, Jewel, Norma, and Bonnie; grandson, Jamie Mundy. Lula is survived by daughter, Sue Cox of Siloam Springs, Arkansas; son, Bill Staggs and wife Sandy of Siloam Springs, Arkansas; sisters, Gladys Jones of Owasso, Oklahoma, and Francis Fell of Kansas, Oklahoma; brother Lloyd Coppedge of Tahlequah, Oklahoma; five grandchildren, Duane Silvey and wife Melanie of Siloam Springs, Arkansas, Mike Silvey of West Siloam Springs, Oklahoma, Tara Silvey and husband Isaic of Orlando, Florida, Alisha Staggs Ross and husband Mitchell of Bentonville, Arkansas, Billy Jack Staggs II of Siloam Springs, Arkansas; and five great grandchildren and one great great granddaughter. Graveside services will be 3:00 p.m., Sunday, November 21, 2021, at Oak Hill Cemetery, Siloam Springs, Arkansas. A viewing for her family and close friends will be 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Sunday, November 21, 2021, at Wasson Funeral Home, Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
