Luella Corfman

Luella May (Shock) Corfman, 94, left this world to be with the Lord on Saturday, March 3, 2018, after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. Luella was born May 31, 1923, in Allen County, to Harold and Erma (Davis) Shock, who preceded her in death. She met the love of her life, James Maurice Corfman, at Eden High School where they graduated in 1941. Jim and Luella were married on June 9, 1945. Jim preceded her in death on Jan. 9, 2012.

Luella worked for a time at a cigar factory in Lima during WWII. After all her children were in school, she worked at Mary’s Decorative Studio for over 20 years, where she used her considerable talent to upholster furniture and make beautiful drapes. Her talents were many-sewing, knitting, crocheting, painting, writing poetry and ceramics. Her creativity was endless.
Luella and her husband were involved with Grange, Farm Bureau Council, Wyandot Tracers, Eden Alumni and Wyandot County Historical Society, among other things. She was also a Sunday School teacher and secretary for Smithville United Methodist Church.            She is survived by all five of her children, Sandra (Robert) Beis, Sycamore; James (Judy) Corfman, Brentwood, Tenn.; Paula (John) White, Coupeville, Wash.; Loretta (Lee) Kimmet, Nevada; Dawn (David) Hicks, Nevada; and five grandchildren, Lewis (Sandy) Schrader, Canal Winchester; Tammy (David) Lane, Sycamore; Sarah (Jonathan) Godfrey, Pittsboro, N.C.; Nikki (Philip) Vaughn, Fort Wayne, Ind.; and James Edward (Meagan) Corfman, Louisville, Ky. There are also seven great-grandchildren surviving, one sister, Ruth Ann Dorsett, Lima; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her grandson, Eric (Rick) Beis and seven siblings.
