Lola married Wesley Earle Conley on May 26, 1948 in Sanborn, ND. She was a manager at Sears in Jamestown, ND and later worked at the family machinery dealership, Conley Implement, at Urbana, ND. She was a member of the Eastern Star, and served as North Dakota’s representative to Georgia.
Known for her competence, creativity and conversational skills, Lola could do anything she set her mind to. She possessed many talents, and had a bright and curious mind with an uncanny knack for mechanics. A prolific textile artisan, she made over 25 hand stitched quilts in her lifetime. Out of all of her accomplishments, Lola took the most pride in being an exceptional grandmother and great-grandmother. Her hard work, charming humor, hospitable spirit, and generous heart has made a lasting impact on the many people who know and love her well.
She enjoyed sewing, gardening, and cooking. But most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family.
