Jean Reed Luallen
Aiken - Jean Reed Luallen, 91, died Friday, February 28th at Pepper Hill Nursing Center.
"Those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not grow faint."
She was married for 69 years to the love of her life, Roy E. Luallen who preceded her in Death three years ago. She now ends her earthly suffering to join him in the light of Eternal Peace.
She was born January 2, 1923 in Lake City, Tennessee to Harry Reed and Belle Reed. With a deep faith in The Lord, she and Roy sang in a Gospel Quartet when they were young people, and visited area churches in East Tennessee. Her family grew up on those old Gospel Hymns and would sing along while 'grandpa' played the guitar.
She was a member of Millbrook Baptist church since 1953 and in younger years was very active in the church.
Survivors are one daughter, Sharon Luallen Bankert (Karl) and two grandchildren, Brent Lundy, Columbia, SC and Brooke Lundy, Aiken. Niece Linda Havesty (Steve) of Atlanta, Nephew Roy Lax of West Palm Beach, FL. Cousins Phil Waters (Kim) Beaufort, SC, Elizabeth Waters Bornscheuer (Todd) Beaufort, SC, Jonathan Waters, Aiken and Phil and Elizabeth's children: Lauren Waters, Emily Waters, Anna Grace Waters, Matthew Bornscheuer and Luke Bornscheuer all of Beaufort.
She was a very loving wife, mother, and grandmother who would do anything for her family. Before her health began to fail she loved working in the yard with her flowers.
During World War II, while her husband was deployed, she worked at Oak Ridge, TN on the highly secretive Manhattan Project which would produce the first Atomic Bomb. She was commended for her work by Robert Oppenheimer and President Harry Truman.
Funeral services will be held March 04, 2014 at 3 PM in the white chapel at Millbrook Baptist Church with The Reverend Dr. Chris Masters officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church. Interment will be beside her husband at Southlawn Cemetery.
