Lula Aubertin went home to be with her Lord, surrounded by friends and family, on Friday, November 24, 2017, from complications of a stroke.

Lula was born on November 26, 1917, in Keller, Washington, and was two days away from her 100th birthday upon her passing. She was the oldest enrolled member of the Colville Confederated Tribes.

She was a graduate of Wilbur High School. She married William (Bush) Aubertin in 1938 and enjoyed riding horses, ranching and visiting with her family and friends. She was very dedicated to her community and was actively involved with the establishment and construction of the Keller Community Church, which she attended regularly. She served on the Colville Tribal Council from 1961 to 1962. She was the best cook in the family, and no one would leave her house hungry.

Lula was preceded in death by her husband, Bush Aubertin; best friend, John Ojheda; and children: Richard Aubertin, Nadine Auberti Naff and Benny Aubertin.

She is survived by her son, Bill (Marilou) Aubertin; grandsons: Trent (Sarah) Aubertin and Tyler (Courtney) Aubertin; and numerous other grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

A celebration of her life will be held at noon Saturday, December 2, at the Keller Community Center. A private graveside for immediate family will follow at the Keller Cemetery.
