Louella Jean, daughter of Leonard Lohnes and Etta Redfox was born on February 26, 1947 at Fort Totten ND. She attended elementary school in Tokio and high school in Maddock.  She also received training at the Job Corp in Maine.  She worked for a time at Brunswick Manufacturing in Fort Totten.

For the past 40 years, Louella has made her home in the Fargo/Moorhead area. She courageously fought many health issues for those 40 years.  Louella was at one time married to Leroy Littleghost.

Louella loved BINGO, watching old movies, making Star Quilts and doing jigsaw puzzles all while listening to her favorite singer George Jones. She had a very friendly and outgoing personality.

As a child of God, Louella practiced her faith by her many corporal works of mercy; feeding, clothing and sheltering anyone in need. She never turned anyone away, never said I can’t help you, never closed the door to her home.  She had such a loving, welcoming heart and was loved by so many and made so many friends wherever she lived.  Everyone called her “auntie”.  Even though she had lived away from Tokio, she always called Redfox Road home.  Her heart and soul was always a part of “Grandpa’s Place”.

Our hearts ache as we mourn the passing of Louella and we will miss you always, love you always and treasure our memories of you and the laughter you gave us all.

Louella’s loving family include her children Jason Paul, Preston Paul, Wilson Paul, Perry Littleghost, Kimberly Littleghost and Whitney Littleghost; numerous grandchildren; several great grandchildren; sister Sally Paul, Dilworth MN; brother Melvin “Gene” Paul, Tokio; nieces and nephews James Paul, Stephanie Paul, Robin Paul, Nanette “Boo” Paul, Floyd “Bear” Paul, Allison Paul, Leslie Lou Paul, Michelle McDonald, Loren Longie, Wayne Greywater, Kenny Greywater, Emery Greywater, Kara Longie, Shanell Paul and Brandon Paul; aunts Sharon (Albin) Georgeson, Hilda (Louie) Garcia, Alberta Redfox and Geraldine Redfox; numerous precious grandchildren, cousins, relatives and special cousin Jolene Littlewind and special friend Brenda McDougall.

She was welcomed home by her Lord and her parents, grandson Trevor McDonald, brother James “Jimmy” Paul, sisters Doris “PāPā” Paul and Bernice “Bee” Paul; niece Lisa Paul; nephew Stacey Paul and aunts, uncles and cousins.
