Lola Turnbill Wilson
July 28, 1935 - July 14, 2013
Lola Wilson, 77, of Verona, KY, formerly of Bell County, passed peacefully at home Sunday, July 14th after a long battle with COPD. She was born in Wallsend, Kentucky on July 28, 1935, a daughter of a coal miner and homemaker, the late Jack and Ella Turnbill.
A long time Gallatin County resident, loving mother and devoted wife, Lola spent her working years as a nurse' aide at the Christ Hospital in Cincinnati Ohio. Upon retirement, her greatest hobby turned out to be reading - anything relating to her Christian faith. She also greatly enjoyed listening to Christian music, as well as attending the occasional yard sale or flea market.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by brothers Henry and Sherman Turnbill, sisters Juanita Turnbill and Ruby Stewart as well as beloved mother-in-law, Mildred Wilson.
Lola is survived by her husband Jim of Gallatin County; son, Jim of Pineville; sister, Geneva Alford and brother Jack Turnbill, both of Michigan, sisters Jean Ingram of Corbin, KY and Cora Rose of London, KY as well as her twin sister Lela Helton of Flat Lick, KY; as well as hosts of nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
Services will be 2:00 PM Friday at the Arnett & Steele Funeral Home with Rev. Astor Simpson.
Burial will follow in the Wallsend Cemetery with family and friends serving as pallbearers.
The family will receive friends on Thursday from 6 until 8 PM at the Arnett & Steele Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Pineville, which is honored to serve the Wilson family.
