Lola was born on November 15, 1925 in Elmore City, Oklahoma to Roy Lee Page and Minnie Fowler Page. She lived in several cities and two states as a child. She loved school and excelled in class work and citizenship. She loved her parents and siblings. She remembered them by their time together with great fondness til the very end. She married Patrick Harrold McKibben on February 3, 1944 in Tonopah, Nevada. They had lived in Lamesa and moved to Odessa in 1977. They remained married until he preceded her in death on February 1, 2000. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and loved raising her four children. She was an avid reader, a good seamstress, great cook, and was happiest when spending time with her family. She was a past member of Northside Baptist Church in Odessa. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, three brothers, Ted Page, Lee Page, and Jack Page, three sisters, Opal Pierce, Joyce Cain, and Patsy Stevens.

She will be missed by all above and many more, but her place in heaven was assured when she accepted Jesus as her Savior at the age of 14, while attending a tent revival in Skellytown, Texas. She was an example of love to all that knew her.
