Woman Goes to Heaven; Returns 5 Hours Later

Posted By on Mon, Mar 9, 2009 at 4:00 AM

The Reverend Paul Grubb was laid to rest in Memorial Park on Monday afternoon. Brother Grubb, as his many followers and friends called him, had been the pastor of Faith Temple on North Trezevant for more than half a century. He was also married to the Rev. Lula Grubb, and the obituary in The Commercial Appeal made no mention of his wife's remarkable adventure -- one that made her a national sensation in the late 1940s.

Lura Grubb died and visited heaven for five hours. More on the fascinating Mrs. Grubb at Vance Lauderdale's blog.
