Celebration of a Life Well Lived: Lula Mae Bellamy Pouncy If you are over 20 and have lived in the West Oak Lane section of Philadelphia, you probably know Ms. Lubel. LULA MAE BELLAMY POUNCY was born August 9, 1939 in Waycross, GA. She was the third child of seven born to the late Eddie and Charlie Mae Jackson. Spiritually, she was brought up by her parents and a grandmother who taught her the importance of loving the Lord with all her heart and soul as well as gave her a solid work ethic and a "fighting spirit". She was adored by hundreds of parents and children over her 30 year career as an educator, advisor, sitter, and often a secondary mom. Lula was a true and practicing member of the "C.I.A" , that's Christians In Action. She accepted the lord early in life at Greater St Paul Baptist church in Waycross. She continued her faithful service at Morris Chapel Baptist Church in Philadelphia for more than 30 years where she joyfully served on the Black and White committee, No.2 choir, and doing all she could for her "seniors". She later joined Second Baptist to serve with her husband, Robert Pouncy. Lula's early education was in Waycross and in her high school years she moved to Philadelphia to live with a family member and graduated from Gratz High School where she was on the basketball and softball teams and had ambition to be a beautician. While she was a good beautician she was an even better seamstress and worked for several years at Noble Factory making children's clothes. When the factory shut in 1975, Lula began keeping children in the basement of her home and the rest, was history. Lula received many honors for the work she completed with Lubel's House of Learning and one of her proudest moments was receiving her Associate degree in Early Childhood Education from Temple University after going back to school in her forties. Lula married Samuel Bellamy right out of high school and they had four beautiful daughters. When their 35 year marriage dissolved Lula met her partner and best friend to the end of her life, Robert L. Pouncy. Together they laughed, loved, travelled and developed a fondness for Corvettes since Lula loved to drive fast. Lula Bellamy Pouncy represents that rare breed of woman who modeled for other women respect for self, hard work and independence, entrepreneurialism, and caring for your family. She did this and all things with both style and beauty that would command a room and anyone that was in her presence was guaranteed to leave with a gift of love, laughter and a smile. Lula leaves us to join her husband, parents, brother, Eddie Jackson Jr. and eldest daughter, Daisy Jackson, who all proceeded her in death. She leaves to continue her legacy: three daughters, Deborah Bellamy, Glendora Bellamy and Michelle Bellamy; three grandchildren, Monroe Lee, Jr., Crisjana Bellamy and Chaya Bellamy; two great grandchildren, Kadar Lee and Amir Lee; her sisters, Dorothy Causer, Katetrina Williams, Ellen Jackson, Shirley Whitaker (Nathaniel); brother,  Willie D. Batchelor (Julia); and also nieces and nephews as well as grandnieces; a host of other relatives, friends, former students and devoted acquaintances.
