Lola Pearson was born on October 20, 1922, to Thomas “Tom” and Meta (Hunwardsen) Albers, in Danbury, Iowa. She married Don Pearson on August 18, 1940, in Steamboat Springs, CO.

The couple enjoyed wintering in Mesa, Arizona, at the Venture Out Mobile Resort. They eventually relocated to Mesa in 1994. Don and Lola enjoyed their time together and loved to dance to big band music.  After Don passed in 2004, Lola remained in Arizona until health issues arose and then she relocated back to Iowa to be closer to family. She made her home at Willow Dale Assisted Living of Battle Creek, Iowa. As her needs changed, she later became a resident at Willow Dale Wellness Village Nursing Home. 

Survivors include her nieces: Sandra Zalme of Sioux City, IA, Darnelle (Burdelle) Knudsen of Ida Grove, IA and Alice O’Brien of Kansas City, MO; nephews: Thom Albers of Friday Harbor, WA and Steve (Sue) Christiansen of Nixa, MO.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Donald Pearson; brother Orville Albers; sisters: Eldora Wiedemann, Evelynne LeFebvere and Darlene Christiansen; nephew Todd Christiansen; and great nephew Andrew Zalme.
