We lived next door to Nola for years. She was so kind to our family and a dear friend. A few years ago we drove by our old house and saw Nola out sweeping the driveway and stopped to talked to her. She invited me and my wife to her back yard patio to chat and talk about all the good times and told us stories of all the families still living in the area. Thank you Nola for being such a good friend and a great neighbor. We all will miss you dearly. Sincerely, Wayne Nielsen and all of the Nielsen family.

What a sweet kind a prankster she was. She was a clown plain clothes division . When I 1st met her I was engaged to Carol aunt Nola said I had to pass the family test so not knowing what I was getting into I agreed she told me to lay down on the floor and close my eyes and raise my right leg . I did and I felt cold water going down my leg to my waist I hurriedly stood up and looked at her and smile and she did to . Then she gave mea hug and I hugged her back and asked if I passed . Everyone was laughing about it. Her great love for everyone and her love for her hubby and her kids was awesome . Thank you aunt Nola for letting me part of the family I love you and will miss you for a bit knowing that when the time comes we’ll see each other again love Tom aka Sammy t ❤️❤️
