Lola Mae Boswood

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). Grandchildren Chemena Neveux (Rene’), Anthony Donker, Ashley Heintz (Tony), David Diemert, Nathan Boswood, Joseph Boswood and William Boswood. Greatgrandchildren Lucia Mae Neveux, Savanah Donker, Anthony Donker, Brody Heintz and Mason Heintz. Services will be held at Nelson Funeral Home on Saturday March 17th at 11 a.m. with visitation on Friday March 16th from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. until time of service. Memorial contributions in Lola’s memory may be to the Otsego County Fair or the Otsego County Animal Shelter.

    In the past years I have only seen Lola when you all have come to Oklahoma, sometimes I missed seeing her. I have loved her from the time I met her, she was always so good and loving to everyone. She will be missed. I know that she is now with Phillip. Always remember the loving mother that you have.

    Lola was like a second Mom to me after my mom died…always warm, welcoming, and affectionate. The Boswood home was like my home away from home. So many adventures and wonderful love and friendship. God has gained the sweetest of ladies. Deanna, Holli, David and Brian my heart goes out to you all during this time…much love and prayer Christabelle
