Jolanta was born in the small town of Glubczyce in Poland and raised by parents, Jan and Zofia, and brothers Ryszard and Jerzy Chyla. At the age of 20 she immigrated to the United States on her own where she started a family and worked tirelessly to achieve her dreams. She worked as a Mary Kay beauty consultant prior to becoming a successful female entrepreneur starting, managing and running a commercial cleaning business for 23 years. She spent the majority of her life in the Chicago area and was able to retire to her favorite state, Arizona.

Jola loved dancing including ballroom, salsa, merengue, tap, and the list goes on. She had a wonderful singing voice and sang in the church choir as well as in the Tremble Clefs choir in Arizona. She loved flowers, enjoyed gardening, and frequently took trips to the Botanic Gardens. Jola was a jet-setter, always on the go and traveling to places near and far; some of her favorites included Israel, Egypt, and Italy. She enjoyed playing tennis as well as boating on the lake. After her diagnosis, she was involved in both the Multiple System Atrophy Coalition and National Ataxia Foundation. Despite physical limitations, she continued being active and fighting against her disease with constant exercise, working on strengthening with therapists, going on outings, attending a variety of classes, and socializing with friends as well as the Living with a Disability and Girl's Day Out groups.

Jola was involved in the church since childhood. She continued her involvement with the church as an adult as a volunteer, in the choir, and hosting bible studies in her home. In Arizona she continued attending church services in addition to bible study. When traveling became difficult she continued her relationship with the Lord at home reading the bible with friends and caregivers and watching services and speakers on TV, continually growing in her faith. She was an incredibly hard worker, independent, caring, and selfless, always ready to host others and lend a helping hand. She was a wonderful role model to her daughters, Angela and Jenny, proud to have helped them complete college.

Jolanta is preceded in death by parents, Zofia and Jan Chyla. She is survived by daughters Angela and Jennifer Li, brothers Ryszard and Jerzy Chyla, and nieces and nephews Tomasz, Piotr, and Ania Chyla.
