Longtime SunBird resident Lola Laney passed peacefully on June 11 with her daughter by her side. Lola enjoyed many Arizona winters with her husband, Dan. They shared time between their Washington home at Summit Lake and SunBird. After Dan’s passing she continued to winter in SunBird, enjoying golf, bridge, her Friday Fun Group, and her outings to the Broadway Palm Theater. She was a consummate hostess and always welcoming family and friends to her winter home.
She wore many hats during her lifetime: head secretary for Pierce County Parks, scout leader, Husky fan, seamstress, golfer, entertainer, wallpaperer, tiler, home planner, and home decorator. Most importantly she was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.
She’ll be deeply missed by her daughter Judy, son-in-law Greg, her grandchildren, and her great-grandchildren.
She leaves a legacy of strength, resilience, and abiding love for her family. She was unstoppable ‘til the end.
