Luella was born in Laurel Nebraska to Charles and Emma Kleinberg. Luella was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years William Thomas Waggoner (Tom). Tom and Luella have four children, fourteen grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Luella was a much beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.
Luella moved to Lakewood California with her family in the 1930's. She attended Excelsior High School and graduated in the class of 1948. She married her beloved Tom in 1950. They built their family home on Native Avenue in Rowland Heights, CA in the early 1960's and raised their family. Her current home has been in Carbon Canyon, CA since 1990 where she and Tom spent their retirement years.
Tom and Luella loved to travel the Southwest United States in their fifth wheel trailer, but her greatest passion was celebrating life with her family. Luella was the consummate party planner and regularly opened her home to friends and family alike, where everyone was always welcome.
Mom we love you and will miss you dearly, but find comfort knowing you and Dad are together again.
