Lola was born January 14, 1926 in Poth, Texas to Adolph and Hettie Coldewey. She was one of six children, four brothers and one sister. After high school she moved with girlfriends to San Antonio to attend business school and then went to work at Vogue Department Store. Soon after she met the love of her life, Lummie Herndon. They married January 19, 1946, which was five days after she turned 20 because Lummie didn't want to marry a teenager. In December of that year their first son, Wayne was born. Lummie went to work in civil service. Their sons, Gary (1955) and Craig (1957) were born in San Antonio before they moved to Fort Worth in 1957.



Lummie worked in Civil Service. He was transferred to New Boston, Texas where Lola went to work for the New Boston ISD. After Lummie retired they moved to Haltom City. Lola worked for Sears in the collection department until she retired in 1986.



After retiring she delivered Meals on Wheels twice a month for over 25 years. She was a member of St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Haltom City. She was a loving caring person and always put her family first. Lola is preceded in death by her husband of almost 61 years, her son Craig and three grandsons, Derrick, Christopher, and Jeremy.
