Lola McFadden, 83, of Sulphur Springs, Texas, was called home to be with her Heavenly Father on Monday, Nov. 5, 2018.

Lola was born Sept. 26, 1935, in Miller Grove, Texas. While attending church, she met and later married Don D. McFadden with whom she shared almost 50 years of marriage. They celebrated and nurtured three beloved daughters.

Lola was a devout Christian and active member of Davis Street Baptist Church for 73 years. She embodied the spirit of Christ's teachings as she served her church and community, putting others' needs before her own. She and friends regularly visited with nursing home residents and were quick to help wherever needed.

She loved to travel with her friends and, just last July, fulfilled her dream of visiting the Holy Land.

Lola is survived by daughters Vicki McFadden, Louann McFadden and Kelly Wood; and son-in-law Mike Wood. Also surviving are her beloved grandchildren, Haley Harmon, Jace and Lori Wood, and Jillian Wood; and great-grandchildren, Jaxon Coulter and Lola Wood.  Cecil Clem, Lola's brother, also survives.

She was preceded in death by husband Don; parents Joel James and Cliffie Ann Clem; four brothers, Olen, Lovell, Leonard and Travis; and one sister, Dessie.

Visitation will be held at West Oaks Funeral Home at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 9, followed by services at 11 a.m. Burial will follow at Restlawn Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to Davis Street Baptist Church at 427 Gilmer St., Sulphur Springs, Texas 75482.

Arrangements are under the direction of West Oaks Funeral Home.
