Lola Lorraine Wall, beloved wife of the late Mel Wall passed away on Saturday August 14, 2015 at Edith Cavell Care Center in Lethbridge at the age of 81.

Lola was born in Red Deer, raised in Skiff Alberta and moved to Taber for high school, where she stayed for 18 years with her husband, the town’s Milkman, and family. For a few school years, she went to Three Hills Bible School. While in Taber, she met her lifelong sweetheart, converted to the LDS church and they were married, then later were sealed in the Cardston LDS temple. She and Dad were married 59 years before Dad passed away. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints until she became too ill to do so.

When she returns home to be with her Saviour, she will be greeting those who preceded her. Her parents John & Carol Newton, her adoring husband Mel; her infant grandson Christopher, her sister Joyce, and her son Doug who passed 1 week before Lola. She had 5 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild.

Surviving are her children, Linda Harvey of Calgary, Don Wall (Huguette) of Vancouver, and Sheila Wall of Lethbridge; and her siblings, Marjorie Cannon (Bill-late) of Calgary; formerly Corraini (Tulio-deceased), Marion Kiffiak, (Nick-deceased) of Edmonton, and Noelin Newton (Ruth) of Lethbridge.

She was always very close to God, even as a small child. She has been an intense Bible scholar, and had a strong relationship with her Lord. She was very bright, getting the second highest Alberta high school exam score. She was always a high spirited, optimistic, determined, courageous, strong, independent and ambitious lady. She had a mind of her own since she was old enough to walk and talk. She liked bright colors and loved fashion. Even though her former religion forbade such things, when she got married, the first things she wanted were red high heels, nail polish, a sewing machine to make the latest fashions, and to go to the hairdresser.

She would never ask for help, even when we needed her to ask for help. It seems the WWII generation is generally like that, strong and usually do things without asking for help. She was an activist, always writing to government officials to right a wrong, help a person or get a law changed. She was a career woman until she retired, working as an accountant, secretary, real estate agent, head of Lethbridge chapter of Alberta Mental Health Association and Alberta Lung Association.

She was also a music teacher and professional seamstress. She was good with her hands. She had a passion for fashion and a talent for looking at magazines, then sewing what she saw for herself and her children. Many friends still comment on how her children were dressed so nicely when they were younger. She loved knitting sweaters and baby clothes, and crocheting doilies. Others will remember her as always smiling, joking and one of the most courageous ladies they knew, enduring innumerable severely painful afflictions and surgeries and close calls with death.

Appreciation and recognition goes to the staff of Edith Cavell for their caring support of Lola for the last several months. We want to also thank Dr. Z. Majiet who compassionately cared for both Lola and Doug.

Lola has requested that no memorial service will be held.
