On Tuesday, July 20, 2021, Lola Michelle Carpenter, loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend, passed away at the age of 95. Born on September 11, 1925, Lola came to the United States from France with her daughter and first husband in 1952. She shared her keen eye for fashion while working at fine dress shops and department stores until the age of 87, making many friends along the way.
She married Russell Carpenter in 1993, gaining three children and nine grandchildren, making her a mother to four and grandmother to 13 lucky grandchildren. A resident of Jerome since 1979, she was a proponent of healthy living and positive thinking. Lola loved music and dance and won several dance competitions. Her delightful, indomitable spirit and love of life was contagious, and she will be greatly missed by family, close friends and all those who knew her.
A funeral service will be held at 2:00 pm, Friday, July 30, 2021 with a viewing beginning at 1:00 pm, at Farnsworth Mortuary, 1343 South Lincoln Ave. Jerome. Graveside will conclude at the Jerome Cemetery.
