Obituary for Louella Bussell

Mrs. Louella Bussell, 87, longtime resident of Mt. Vernon and the Hummel area, passed from this life to be with her Lord on the 5th of September, 2018 at Rockcastle Regional Hospital.
Louella Clark was born May 2, 1931 in Rockcastle County and became the beloved wife of Charles Edward Bussell. She had 6 children, 13 grandchildren and, to date - 13 great grandchildren. Louella also became known as Granny Lou or Granny Bussell to many of the young people, their parents, and families within the community due to her love for sports by supporting her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren as they played many sports for the Rockcastle County Rockets. She had a grandson or great grandson playing for the Rockcastle County Football team 24 years out of 27 beginning 1990 to 2016. Many times she would watch back-to-back games from field to field but she loved it. Her hobbies were gardening, politics, and above all, supporting her family in all their many sporting activities. She was an election officer for Rockcastle County for many, many years until she was no longer able. Voters would often miss her presence and ask about her. She had been a bus driver for the Rockcastle County Child Development Center, was a member of Freedom Baptist Church, and was a former member of the Order of the Eastern Star.
She is survived by her children, Sharon Thacker (Jesse), Carol Kirby (Roy Allen), Charles Tommy Bussell (Teresa), Janet McClure (Barry) and Michael Bussell (Wanda) all of Mt. Vernon; and two brothers Lonnie Clark of Berea and Donnie Clark of Versailles. She is also survived by her grandchildren whom she loved dearly; Stacy and Jessica Thacker, Dana Bullock, Chriss Kirby and Shane Kirby, Devon Bussell, Mickey, Dusty and Tiffany McClure, Scott Daughtery, James Michael, Kyle, and Jacob Bussell; her 13 great grandchildren who became the light of her life in her later years; Avery and Logan Bullock, Robert and Juliann Kirby, Chayse, Addison, Maddux, and Greyson McClure; Sydney Bussell, Aiden, Ashton and Addley Daugherty and Margot Bussell. She also has many nieces, nephews, neighbors and friends that will mourn her passing. She was preceded in death by her husband Charles Bussell, parents John and Nannie McGuire Clark, one brother James Clark, one sister Stella Marie Coffey, and one daughter Deborah Sue Bussell.
