Lola was a funny woman, always joking and living life the best she could. She loved her sons and raised them in Elroy, Texas. After her husband, Floyd, passed away, she moved to Smiley to be closer to her brother, William and wife Linda, sisters, Darlene and husband Mike, and Valerie and husband Bill. Lola was known for her laughter and great jokes. She brought so much humor to any small or large shindig. You always had to make sure you held your shorts or pants as she would drop them to the ground in a split second.
She loved Jesus and gospel music. She went to church at Hornsby Bend Assembly of God where Brother Avery and Sister Avery always kept her loving the Lord. She was an Elvis fan forever. Lola was a great grandma, who loved all of her grandbabies dearly. She was a great cook. She made homemade biscuits, hamburger meat and pork and beans, peanut butter cookies, and anything you’d want her to cook to make you happy. She enjoyed watching old re-runs of “I Love Lucy” and “Gunsmoke”. She loved the Lord with all of her heart and ached to be returned to Floyd’s arms. She is now at peace and will be missed by many.
