Lola Adams was the ninth of ten children of Albert Sidney and Emma(Phillips) Adams. While the family moved to several locations Lola was mostly raised in Trinity, Angelina and Houston Counties in Texas. Lola received her teachers degree from East Texas State Teachers College in Commerce, Texas. She liked to tell how she had two dresses; each day she wore one and washed one.
After college she was hired by Shell Oil Company in Houston. They assigned her to filing. She told her boss that she had a college education and was certainly capable of doing more than being a file clerk and quit.
She also worked for some government branch in San Antonio. Perhaps one of the Air Force bases. This was during World War II. She told of forgetting her pass one day. She wasn't stopped in the morning but when she got ready to go home she was detained and interrogated for hours before being warned not to forget her pass again and released.
She taught Algebra at Conroe High School for quite a few years. After retiring from teaching, she worked as a bookkeeper for a company and then privately.
She built a home in Lufkin to be close to some of her siblings. Lola loved her family, gardening, classical music and was well read. She was an independent woman, well informed and capable of speaking her mind if the need arose.
