Rayola Lucille Andrew, daughter of Ray and Goldie (Adams) Boles was born January 22, 1921 on a rice farm in Wharton County, Texas and passed from this life Sunday, June 2, 2013 at Southern Hills Specialty Care at 92 years of age.
Rayola received her education at the Brick Country School and then Grand River High School graduating in 1939.
She met Ralph Andrew when she was a freshman in high school. They were married on July 29, 1939 and started their life together in a little house near his parents' home. Their son, Randall blessed their lives on August 6, 1942. They lived in Grand River, Iowa until they moved in 1958 making their home in Osceola.
Rayola enjoyed traveling, quilting, and crocheting, and was very involved with her Church. She joined the Grand River United Methodist Church in 1953 and later served as the president of the Women's Society of Christian Service and was the church treasurer. At the Osceola United Methodist Church, she chaired the prayer chain and Quilting Ladies Organization.
In 1981 she started taking tours, traveling to Alaska and several others which took her to all 50 states and 70 countries. The most precious one was when she went to Israel, also in 1981, because Randall went with her.
