MEDINA – Luella J. Caleb, 92, of Medina entered into rest peacefully on Wed., Jan. 5, 2022 at the Orchard Rehab & Nursing Center.

Born on April 1, 1929 in Kent, Luella was the daughter of the late Lawrence Gray, Sr. and Genieve (Erway) Gray. She was a graduate of Medina High School. Born with a strong work ethic, Luella worked various jobs over her life including at the Knowlesville Hotel and Blissett’s Specialty Shop in Medina. Later in life she worked as a home health aide for years taking care of many of the elderly in our community, a job she sincerely enjoyed. Luella took care of others up until she herself needed some caring in recent years with the diagnosis of dementia. Throughout life she was always one to help in any way that she could, albeit in her “no-nonsense” approach.  Even when living in the nursing home, Luella would often help the nurses with their daily tasks. Aside from work, Luella was an avid bowler and competed in state-level competitions. She also enjoyed golfing and loved watching the Buffalo Bills. Luella was a proud member of the Mustang Band Boosters and was also a member of the Moose Club.

Left to cherish her memory are her two daughters, Gail (Thomas) Cook of Arizona and Tina (Rob) Dennis of Medina; six grandchildren, Randy (Shaula) Cook, Amanda (Justin) McMillan, Melissa (Gene) Thompson, Lee Gray, Robert (Kate) Dennis-Pelcher and Nellie (Robert) Herman; great-grandchildren, April and Austin Cook, Abigail and Brayden McMillan, Grant and Stella Thompson, Quinton Dennis-Pelcher, Aurora and Magnolia Herman; also several nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Luella was predeceased by two brothers, Lawrence Gray, Jr. and Russell Gray.

SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Her memorial service will be held on Saturday June 25 at 11:00am at Cooper Funeral Home, 215 W., Center St., Medina. Rev. Susan Thaine will officiate. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association at Share memories and condolences at
