She was an avid seamstress who did alterations and sewed for many people, including uniforms for St. Ludger students and the first Kolache outfits for Verdigre’s All American City Award. She enjoyed sewing, baking, and tending to her flowers.
Lola would be seen attending her grandchildren’s many events and wearing a sports shirt as she was cheering for each of them. She was always caring for her grandchildren, helping them with homework, and shuttling them to and from school and activities.
Lola and Marvin were able to take many trips together, including Hawaii, Spain, Portugal, and Britain.
