Lola Mae Myers went to her final home, in the loving arms of her Lord and Savior, Friday, January 27th, 2017, to join those of her family who had gone before.
Lola was born on November 26, 1933, in Middleton, Idaho to Albert (Ab) and Mary Edith Campbell. She was later joined by her one and only sister Evelyn (Jean). Lola's birth mother passed away when she was a tender young age of three. Her father remarried Julia Allen who became a mother to raise these two young girls.
Lola attended Middleton Elementary School her first 6 years then the family moved to Parma, Idaho where her father farmed. Here is where she learned to become a fine steward of the soil and an excellent gardener of vegetables and flowers. Lola worked hard on the farm milking cows and learning to cook. She was an amazing cook and baker her whole life.
Little did Lola know living in that little yellow house in Middleton, Idaho as a baby, she would meet her future husband. Little did Lindy know that he would marry that little girl and they would spend 67 married years together. Lola and Lindy married on June 2, 1949, when Lola was the age of 15 ½. They had six children, Connie Jean, born in July of 1950, Tommy Lynn, 1952, Clifford Lee, 1953, Calvin Wade, 1955, Cheryl Ann, 1956 and finally Cindy Rae, 1957, completing their family. After moving numerous times while following Lindy's profession as an iron worker, they chose Frenchtown as their forever home. In 1969, they purchased land on Houle Creek, and with Lindy's skills and the gift of the woods that God created, they built a home there that continues the legacy of their family. Many beautiful flowers will continue to grow and their garden will await its next planting. Lola was an exceptional self taught seamstress sewing her young daughters clothes, she made many baby clothes for her grandchildren, and crocheted many items for the missionaries in Mexico. One of her special projects was the stocking caps she donated to Community Hospital, to keep the little ones warm on their trips home. Lola spent many hours in the Bible Camp Kitchens of Camp Utmost and Camp Elohim; very special places in both Lola and Lindy's hearts, where they shared their love of the Lord and the bonds of family.
Lola became a member of the Village Health Care family in April of 2015. They became her family, too. What a comfort they were to her sons and daughters who were so appreciative of them all. Lindy was accepted at the Village also as he became Lola's daily visitor. Many last memories were made playing Bingo and having pizza with family and friends there. Sunday afternoons Lindy would be found at Lola's side sharing scripture with other residents in the Village home.
Lola is preceded in death by her parents, sister Evelyn (Jean), son Tommy Lynn, daughter Cheryl and daughter-in-law Kathy (Calvin). She is survived by her husband Charles 'Lindy' Myers, daughters Connie (Larry) Wall, Batavia, Ill, and Cindy (Floyd) Waymire, Heron, Mt. Sons, Clifford (Doris) of Middletown, NY, and Calvin (Trish) Frenchtown. Eleven grandchildren and twenty great grandchildren.
