From Batty Broadhead Wilson:
Always a gracious lady and fun to be with. Grateful to have known her.
From David Price:
Nola was, and still is, a long time friend of the Prices. We were ward and neighbor associates for as long as we have lived here. She was in a care center at Christmas time when we brought our grandkids to sing. She told Susan she wanted to get away to go shopping.
All the best to the family
David and Susan

From Susan Tuft:
Nola was a faithful, longstanding and dedicated worker in the Mini-Cassis Community Concerts association....and she was a worker long before I was. When I was made president of that outfit in 1995, I could always count on Nola's competent work and good support, especially keeping track of memberships! Thanks, Nola!!
From Kathy Christensen:
I loved Aunt Nola. She was a good friend to my Mother during a very difficult time in Mom's life. I remember playing with Ronal and Leon as kids. It is so sad to lose her in this life and I can only imagine the joy she has been received with by Uncle Gene, Doral (my dad) and the many other loved ones who have passed ahead of her.
From Nola Asher:
Dear friends, so sorry you have to deal with the earthly loss of such a dear and wonderful part of your life! I was so grateful to call her friend. It was such great fun to share the same name. It was confusing when they would call on someone to say a prayer and only use the first name and that often happened. Great for laughs. There is a song called Nola, and we both played it during our lifetime and were contemplating doing it as a duet but 8t didn’t happen. She was a priceless friend, neighbor and as with Sheila, we enjoyed our journey through Country Friends Book Club. May you all be blessed with comfort and peace. Love you all forever!
From Kathryn Hall8:
Nola was a dear friend. We served together in church and community organizations. She was a very lovely woman.
From Carla Mortenson :
I loved this beautiful woman. She was kind, strong, & had such a genuine love of our Savior. I will always remember her.
From Sheila B. Adams:
One of my favorite book club members. She welcomed me to the Springdale Country. Friends with a smile and interesting stories. She can see and read again surrounded by members who await her. I’m lucky to have known her. Peace to all your hearts
