LOLA WAS BORN ON MARCH 9, 1937 TO KATE AND MAC HOUSTON. AS AN ONLY CHILD, YOU CAN ONLY IMAGE HOW SPOILED SHE WAS, BUT LOVED HER LIFE BEING RAISED IN THE AIKEN COMMUNITY. WHILE ATTENDING CENTER HIGH SCHOOL, SHE MET A TALL HANDSOM GUY, AND THE LOVE OF HER LIFE JAMES PAUL. THEY DATED ALL THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL AND EVEN WHILE ATTENDING STEPHEN F. AUSTIN STATE UNIVERSITY. IT WAS TRUE LOVE AND THEY MARRIED ON JULY 14, 1956. JAMES PAUL WAS AN ENTERTAINER AND TRAVELED WITH LOLA BY HIS SIDE GIVING CONSTANT SUPPORT. A COUPLE OF YEARS LATER TANA WAS BORN. WITH TANA IN TOW, LOLA CONTINTUED TO TRAVEL AND SUPPORT JAMES PAUL. FOUR YEARS LATER TRACI WAS BORN, LOLA HAD TO START STAYING AT HOME AND HOLDING DOWN THE FORT. DARREN WAS BORN TWO YEARS LATER AND HER FAMILY WAS COMLETE.


LOLA DEDICATED 35 YEARS TO SHELBY SAVING BANK WHERE SHE MET SO MANY PEOPLE AND DEVELOPED LIFE LONG FRIENDSHIPS THAT SHE TREASURED. AFTER THE LOSS OF DARREN IN 1990, LOLA WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN ENSURING THAT THE DARREN WILSON GOLF CLASSIC SCHOLARSHIP RAISED AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE TO HELP HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FUTHER THEIR EDUCATION BY AWARDING SCHOLARSHIPS THROUGHOUT SHELBY COUNTY. SHE WORKED DILIGENTLY AND DEVELOPED THE SILENT AUCTION WHICH WERE GENEROUS DONATIONS GIVEN BY THE COMMUNITY TO BE AUCTIONED OFF DURING THE EVENT. THIS SILENT AUTION WAS ALWAYS A HUGE SUCCESS THANKS TO HER DEDICATED WORK.


LOLA LOVED HER CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN, BUT WAS MOST EXCITED WHEN THE GREAT GRANDCHILDREN STARTING BEING BORN. NOAH, JONAH, SADIE, TAEGAN WERE THE LOVES OF HER LIFE. BABY ERZA WILL BE BORN IN JANUARY, HE NEVER GOT TO MEET NANA, BUT WILL BE TOLD WHAT A WONDERFUL PERSON SHE WAS.
