Lola Marie Moline Obituary
February 7, 1934 - February 19, 2017 Wife, mother, grandmother and accomplished business woman died Sunday, February 19, 2017 at the age of 83 from pulmonary fibrosis. She is survived by her husband, Lawrence, their two children, Lisa and Robert, six grandchildren, and two sisters, Peggy Lundeburg and Dorthy Dorsky. Lola was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota to Arnold and Mildred Nelson and was one of five sisters. Lola moved with her family to Los Angeles in 1945. As a student at Manual Arts High School, she met Larry Moline and their storybook, high school romance led to a marriage that lasted more than 62 years. Lola's support of Larry made it possible for him to found a landscape design firm that would go on to achieve national recognition. In turn, Larry encouraged Lola to continue her education and pursue a successful CPA career at Price Waterhouse during an era when that field was dominated by men. After several years, Lola left Price Waterhouse to form her own CPA firm specializing in tax, forensic and expert witness services. The supportive partnership between Lola and Larry characterized their decades together¿they were a remarkable team. Lola shared her gifts and volunteer service with various charities; she and Larry traveled extensively, enjoyed the arts and cinema, and her passion for reading led her to form a book group 38 years ago that continues to this day. Lola's culinary skills were revered by everyone fortunate enough to attend their annual Thanksgiving feasts. In fact, her grandchildren received early training in the creation of a perfect pie crust under her guidance, adored her cheese soufflé and eagerly anticipated her spritz cookies during the holidays. Her devotion to her family was everything. She was often seen in the bleachers at sporting events for her many grandchildren, nieces and nephews and did her best to attend every graduation ceremony and special event for her large and loving family. As a testament to this love, her final days were spent in the company of family members who had traveled to be with her and with Larry, who never left Lola's side. She will be missed. She will never be forgotten. She will be loved eternally.
