Lula B. Estes (1917-2008)

Born August 22, 1917, Lula grew up in Soochow, China, the daughter of YMCA missionaries Whitefield and Lula Brockman.  She and her husband, Dr. Harry M. Estes, also participated in many missionary trips during their life.  She was a beloved Nashville portrait painter who painted many of the "movers and shakers" of the area.  She studied portrait painting under Paul Schwab from 1953 and continued to paint portrait commissions until she was in her 80's.  She died October 11, 2008.

Her painting of John Berrien Lindsley, 19th century Nashville educator, physician, minister, and author, hangs in the downtown Nashville Public Library.
