Lola attended Lincoln Elementary and High School and graduated in 1960. Desiring to further her education Lola moved to Galveston and began studies that led to a career at John Sealy Hospital until 1995 when she retired for medical reasons. Lola met Edward Smith, Sr. and their courtship led to marriage in 1965 and yielded one son, Edward, Smith, Jr..
Lola was a member of Mt Pilgrim Baptist Church for over 30 years, where she faithfully song in the choir and served with the Willing Workers Ministry. She continued to worship regularly until illness prevented her participation.

Lola was a kind, loving caring and generous woman who exemplified the true meaning of the word “Christian” in all aspect of her life. She was loved deeply by her family who provided care for her many years during her illness. Lola will be missed by all who were blessed to have known, loved and been loved by her.
