 Lula ‘Lou’ Hibbard

Lula “Lou” Belle Hibbard, age 86, of Fowlerville, left this earth to spend eternity with Jesus. Lou was born on June 27, 1937 in Northville, Michigan, the daughter of Ezra W., Sr. and Lula Mae (Lemen) Miller.

Mother of Don (Pam) Hibbard and Beth (Eric) Karschnick. Also survived by grandchildren Brienne Huff, Alicia Arnold, Rebekah Roberts, Ryan Karschnick, Ben Karschnick, Bethany Carpenter, Zac Karschnick and 9 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband Donald Sr., sister Marion Bushey, and brother Ezra Miller, Jr.

Lou retired from Reuland Electric Company in Howell in the fall of 1989. She was active as a 4-H Leader for 25 years and during this time, she was Superintendent of small livestock for 15 years. As an avid weaver, she would raise sheep, spin wool and use a loom to do weaving. For several years she demonstrated weaving at the Fowlerville Fair using an antique Loom.

Lou was an active member of the Marr Community Bible Church since 1954. Along with her husband they traveled across the United States as RVer’s, volunteering full time for missions and youth camps from 1989 until 2008, when her health required them to leave their vagabond lifestyle. They then enjoyed spending winters in Brookville, Florida.

A funeral service for Lou will be held Monday, January 29, at 11:00 AM, at the Marr Community Bible Church. Visitation will be Sunday, January 28, from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM at Watkins Brothers Funeral Homes, MacDonald’s Chapel of Howell. Burial will be in Sanford Cemetery.
