Lola Mae (Poindexter) Stevens was born on August 10, 1924 in Oplin, Texas. She was the youngest child of Will Poindexter and Amelia (Johnson) Poindexter. Lola was reared in Oplin and graduated from Oplin High School. She married William (Bill) Stevens on December 19, 1948, in Canadian, Texas. Bill brought his young son, Dale, to the marriage and Lola loved him as the dear son he was. Later, two daughters were born, Ronda Lynn and Marsha Lee. Bill was a carpenter and Lola followed him to many towns, finally settling in Aztec and Navajo Dam, New Mexico, where the girls attended and finished high school. They then relocated to Shattuck, Oklahoma to help care for Bills father. After Bills death in 1997, Lola moved to Woodward to be closer to the girls. Lola worked as a bookkeeper, sales clerk and as a volunteer with the Woodward Hospital Auxiliary. She also volunteered with the Woodward Senior Center dance committee for many years.
Lola loved her children and grandchildren with all her heart. Her nieces and nephews all held a special place in her heart too. She remained close to many of them until she died. She adopted the Barth Family as her own and was very close to them. They treated her with love and respect for many years.
