Nola Ann Lobdell
07/30/1951 — 12/08/2022
From Kennewick, WA
Nola Ann Lobdell
Nola passed away unexpectedly December 8, 2022.
She was born in Richland, Wa to Wilmer and Barbara Alderman. She would spend her whole life in the Tri-cities (Go Bombers-class of 69). Most recently living in Kennewick to be closer to her family.
Nola married Guy Lobdell in 1969. Three years later Kara came along, Nola ultimately ended up quitting her job with Hanford patrol to be a stay at home Mom.
In their later years Nola and Guy found great joy in adopting/rescuing greyhounds. They adopted three off the tracks and gave them a loving ‘fur’ever home. Nola also took pride in and enjoyed her volunteer work at Safe Harbor Thrift store in Kennewick. The store helps to support the crisis nursery center. She volunteered there for many many years alongside her Mother, Sister, oldest Granddaughter and daughter (on occasion).
As Nola aged and her health made caring for the large breed of greyhound more difficult she turned her attention towards Italian Greyhounds. She became involved with a local group of Iggy owners that would get together, have picnics and let the dogs play (this is also something the greyhound rescue group did as well). She enjoyed these events tremendously when she was able to attend.
When she was physically capable she was a doting grandmother, she loved her Granddaughters fiercely and completely.
Nola is survived by her daughter Kara Kent of Kennewick, Sister Paula (Doug) Moeller of Kennewick, Granddaughter Tori of Richland, Granddaughter Regann of Kennewick, Nephew Jared (Caitlin) Moeller of Finley, Two Great Grandson’s Finn and Hudson and Jake whos care, concern and ability to advocate for her made him more of a son then any kind of caregiver. Your assistance and kindness will forever be appreciated.
Nola is preceded in death by her loving parents Wilmer Alderman, Barbara Bench and her forever love Guy Lobdell.
Mom, I would do it all again. Love is our way, all mine to you xxoo.
