Lola passed away May 9, 1964.
This obituary is an example of how much joining GenealogyBank.com has helped me in my research. I could not find where Lola was buried. I did not know that after her first husband had died, she had remarried. Even if I had known, I did not know her new last name. However when searching on GenealogyBank, I am able to include key words in a search; thus, by including "Tapley" as a key word, I was able to find Lola's obituary... which told me her new last name was Dawson. Of course, finding her obituary told me where she was buried. And knowing her last name pointed me to another article about Lola.
It seems that Lola had some difficult times in her life. After being married to her first husband, Virgil Powell, for 38 years, he passed away in 1950. Only eight years later, in 1958, her only child, Virgil Willard Powell, died from a heart attack at the VERY young age of 42.

I hope the remainder of her years were less trying for her.
Can anyone give me an idea of when this photo was taken??
