Lola M. Boswood, 77, known affectionately to close family and friends as Miss Lola or Lolabelle passed away peacefully at home, in the early morning of March 10th 2018. Although a simple and understated woman she was a true southern belle, as was reflected in her manners and hospitality she showed to everyone.
Lola was born in Burns City, Texas on January 15, 1941 to Lilly Verdae Floyd-Caster and Gervas Leon Caster (Joe). On May 8, 1960 she married her true love Phillip Gale Boswood in Perryton, Texas and together they had four children.
In 1970 they moved to Gaylord, Michigan and together built a successful Oil Well Servicing Co. amongst other smaller businesses over the years. In addition to working, Lola was a loving and supportive wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Always a warm lady who loved people and animals, she adored her family, and her home was always the center of activity welcoming family and friends regularly. No matter the situation Lola was always a calming influence everyone turned to. But, for all her calm and quiet she was a strong woman who will be missed more than words can express. Lola was preceded in death by her husband Phillip and her parents, her brother’s Judd and Delmer and her sisters Michelle and Peggy. Lola is survived by her children DeAnna Boswood, Holli Boswood, David Boswood (Melissa), and Brian Boswood (Nicole Adair).
