She graduated from Del Norte High School in 1935. Lola married Walter Raymond on July 10, 1963 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  She lived in the San Luis Valley for many years, retired from San Luis Valley REC and she and Walt moved to Cañon City in the 70’s.  Lola enjoyed bowling, pinochle, puzzles, drives in the mountains, walking and spending time with family and friends. She enjoyed taking the time to send a birthday card, holiday greeting or a written letter to family and friends.

Lola is survived by her nephews Donald (Linda) Wells Jr. & Gary Wells; nieces Leah (Wells) & Jim Dorney, and Patty (Wells) Pacheco; Great nephews Ryan Dorney, Adam Dorney & Brandon Pacheco; great nieces Kaylee and Karlee Pacheco.

Lola will be greatly missed by her friends at Royal Gorge Manor and her friends and caregivers at Progressive Care Center.  She loved talking with others about many experiences over the last 98 years! We all will miss her quick wit, her wisdom and her fiery personality that she would say came from being a red head.
