Sorry for your loss. I always loved her. She made wedding dresses for my wedding. Losing a mother is so hard, no matter what age. Their generation
was the best. Love and prayers.

One behalf of the Family of Betty Garland, a sister to Nola...we wish to extend our sincere condolences to her family.

Although Nola is gone, her spirit will remain with all of us, we will remember the many wonderful meals she prepared and the "cherry pies" she prepared more than once for us.

In the last years of my own Mother''s life .... she spoke of Nola often and always with love ....and I feel sure that if she were here today that she wouldn''t say "Goodbye" but instead say .... I''ll see you in heaven ...Welcome home''s a joyous homecoming for us both.

Our sincere sympathy and love to all the family and thank you for sharing your "Mother" with all of us....
Joan, Violet, Carl, AnnaBelle

From the family of Leonard and Fern Tipton:Your family was like ours in a time when communities were close,neighbors visited without calling first,children played together and spent the night without worry,friends pitched in when help was needed,the party line was a good way to keep up with news,everyone shared recipes and advice,and the church members were all like family.There are so many wonderful memories for us all.Mama thought no one could make baked apples like Nola.She truly loved the Lord and touched many people,especially her church children,with her knowledge and love.She will always be remembered fondly for all she has meant to us.Please let any of us know if you need anything.With love.
