God looked out over His universe and saw that the world needed one of His angels. Our Father, who is all-wise and omnipotent, sent Mother Lula Copeland to earth to make a difference in His people’s lives and be a loving, shining light to her family. When Mother Lula fulfilled God’s promise as intended, God gently touched her shoulder and whispered, “Well done, my child.”
With most sincere sympathy, we formally announce the passing of Mother Lula Copeland, who transitioned from this life on Friday, December 1, 2023.
Mother Lula Copeland was born in Thomas County, Georgia, on March 5, 1931, to the late Henry and Lucille (Williams) Henderson. Mother Copeland was one of thirteen children born to the union of Henry and Lucille. Her siblings, Doris, Clara, Sadie, Ruth, May, Otis, Charlie, and Barbara, all preceded her in death. Her surviving siblings are Grace, Ernest, Molly, and Almeta. She was married to the late Raymond D Copeland. She is the mother of eight children. Joann Reid, Charles Reid, Timothy Copeland, all of Cairo, Georgia. Jacquelyn Zackery (Orlando, Florida), Lavern Johnson (Savannah, Georgia), Raymond Copeland, Jr. (Nina) Tallahassee, Florida, Dr. Ruby Williams (Wilbert) Santa Clarita, California, Ada Hill (Jerome) Thomasville, Georgia. She is the grandmother of twenty-three grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews.
She cared deeply for her family, neighbors, and community. She always sacrificed her needs for the good of her family. She loved cooking and would often make cakes or dishes for various people in her neighborhood who were sick, in need, or in many cases, just being a good Christian neighbor or friend. She also loved working in her yard, planting beautiful flowers.
Mother Copeland was a devout Christian and accepted Christ at an early age. She believed in taking her children to church and not sending them. She loved her children deeply and would continuously pray for them. She was a member of Full Gospel Church of Deliverance for many years under the leadership of Elder Copeland, Elder Cooper, and the Late Pastor Mary Williams. She later became a member of Redeeming Life Church under the leadership of Pastors Kevin and Angela Hindsman, where she served faithfully until her health began to fail.
