Biography

Luella Jean Rote was born July 2, 1921 in Sandusky, Ohio to Galen Weiker Rote and Lulu P. Craun. She was their second and youngest child, one of two daughters. Her older sister, Marian Virginia Rote died at the age of 8, a few months after Luella’s seventh birthday.

Luella obtained a bachelor’s degree in English from Ohio State University and a master’s degree in counseling from University of Michigan. By the mid-1950s, she was working in Midland, Michigan as a high school English teacher, and it was there that she met Winston D. Lloyd.

Luella Jean Rote and Winston D. Lloyd were married while in international waters in Lake Saint Clair on Thanksgiving weekend (November 28-31) 1957. (See Winston D. Lloyd’s profile for additional details.) Unfortunately the officiant, a personal friend of Luella’s, misplaced the license, so that it remained unfiled. When the couple learned of the loss of the paperwork, Luella was very upset and threw her new husband out the door, distraught at finding herself officially unmarried. The couple had a second ceremony, this time performed in the home of a friend Ann Arbor, Michigan, sometime in January, 1958. Note: I am writing this story as the daughter of Luella Jean Rote and Winston D. Lloyd. While my father often told my brothers and me that he and my mother had been married by the captain of a boat in international waters between the U.S. and Canada—a story my mother confirmed with, perhaps, a bit of hesitation—it was only after my mother’s death that he shared the full details. My father clearly finds the story full of humor, but I believe my mother found the events very distressing. Before my father’s revelations, and the specifics he included in his incomplete and unpublished autobiography, there were sufficient details left inexact that I grew up with a sense of mystery surrounding that event. To this day, I have not been able to turn up a marriage license, although I am certain there is one, nor do I know the exact date of my parents’ marriage.

Luella Jean Rote and Winston D. Lloyd had three children: one daughter (that’s me), Pamela D. Lloyd, and two sons, Donald G. Lloyd and Craig Winston Lloyd. With each pregnancy, Luella suffered increasingly from hypertensive disorder of pregnancy. Each of her children was born earlier than the last, with her youngest born so prematurely as to be considered a miracle baby. In late December, 1998, immediately following a meal in her favorite restaurant, Luella collapsed and was rushed by ambulance to Providence Hospital, where she was admitted to the ICU. Subsequent to being removed to a private room, Luella Jean Rote spent two weeks in a twilight coma before finally dying on January 17, 1999 in El Paso, Texas.
