I am Lola's travel agent. She loved to travel and try new things! She came with me on several of my group trips, so I got to know Lola well. She loved to snorkel, explore, and had quite the sense of humor!! This past February I took a group to Cabo San Lucas. Lola was the 1st one to sign up. (before learning about her illness) One of the things she wanted to do was go on a camel safari and 4 wheel drive adventure through the jungle!! She was so vibrant and full of life!! There was nothing that woman wouldn't try!! A couple of years ago in Cozumel, she went deep sea fishing! Her and the other women on the boat caught a big fish....where the men caught nothing! So that made for a lot of fun! I will miss Lola. I will miss her a lot....When she canceled her last trip with me, and gave me the bad news about her illness, I think she knew that her travelling days were over. Good bye, my friend.

Lola was one-of-a-kind: a woman who was adventurous, loyal, outgoing, and had her own point of view on everything. I worked with her for just over 10 years in the library at MSU and she was a faithful, dependable, and unforgettable colleague. Her loss is felt keenly by her co-workers here. She will be missed and remembered always with fondness.

I worked with Lola for nearly 27 years at MN State University in the Memorial Library. Lola was a very dedicated employee who was passionate about helping faculty and students. She literally was the person who opened the doors to the building and greeted us most days as we began to work, research, and study. One can only imagine the amount of change she witnessed during her 47 years of employment at MSU. I miss our morning greetings as we caught up on sports, travels, puppies, and kids. May she now be bowling 300s, scoring eagles in golf, and enjoying eternal travels with Carol! We miss you Lola.

Lola was such a kind person! I will miss her sunny smile:) We had taken a class together many years ago and remained friends.

I am so saddened to learn of Lola's death. I am a professor at Minnesota State University, Mankato and I often visit the Educational Resource Center desk in the basement of MSU's Memorial Library to check out videos for showing in my classes. For so many years, Lola was often the person behind the desk helping me, and I had come to greatly appreciate her outstanding service and always sunny disposition, which put a spring in my step. I am certain I am not the only library patron that Lola helped over the years. My heart is so heavy to learn Lola has passed on.

Lola was one of the first people I met when I was newly hired at Minnesota State Mankato in 2001. She was incredibly kind, sensitive, and remarkably helpful. Her disposition on life was infectious, and she had a way of making everyone around her feel encouraged, uplifted, and optimistic about the future ahead. I am deeply saddened to have learned of her passing, but feel profoundly grateful to have had the privilege of knowing her - she was a true Force-for-Good. God speed, Ms. Lola!

Lola ~~ You were a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. Your cheerful smile and hello helped warm the long winter months. You treated everyone as your friend, and the world has been better because you passed through it. Rest in peace.
