Lola was an extraordinary mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was the strongest, sweetest and most selfless person you could ever meet. Anyone who met her was touched by her sweet personality. She always had a smile on her face and never complained about anything. She enjoyed cooking and looked forward to spending time with family, especially celebrating birthdays and holidays. She will be greatly missed by so many.
The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to Dr. David Barnes and his staff for their exceptional care throughout the years for our Mom, Mamaw and Memaw.
Pallbearers will be grandsons and great grandsons.
