Lula was born to Leotis and Vera Faust from McKenzie. Lula was born on Oct. 18, 1934, about a mile south of McKenzie on a rural road in Conecuh County which is now County Road 51. Lula was their only child for 11 years until her brother Dale was born. The two were very close. Lula graduated from McKenzie High School in 1952. Shortly after graduating, she went on to nursing school. She stayed in nursing school until she married L.D. Kervin and the newlyweds moved to the Midway School community which is now Pigeon Creek community. L.D. Kervin passed away in 1993 and Lula never remarried. She enjoyed doing crossword puzzles and word searches and reading about history. She loved the song, “Never Grow Old.” She will be greatly missed.
