“Luella was a loyal and hard-working member who had no relatives with her in Jonestown. I remember this beautiful lady well, and her black-and-white photo shows the Luella I remember, and loved dearly. Luella had a great sense of humor and was a good listener. In Jonestown, she served as a Team D counselor, was on the Inspection Committee, and was also a cottage supervisor. ” - Kathryn Barbour
