Lolly was born in Klein Ilsede, Germany where she lived with her mother and grandmother for the first two years of her life.

The German government contacted her dad in New York. He had married Joanne by then; that marriage was annulled and the process of getting papers in order to bring Lolly and her mother to America began.

The following story was told to me by Lolly's mom, I get chills every time I think about this.
Margot and Lolly had everything in order, so they thought. As they were getting ready to board an airplane to bring them to the United States something was found to be wrong with Lolly's papers. They were forced to miss that plane. The plane that they were suppose to be on crashed in the Atlantic Ocean, everyone on board perished in the crash. Lolly's dad was waiting for the two of them to arrive at what was then Laguardia Airport in New York. Everyone was brought into a room and told the news. For some time he thought he had lost his future wife and child. They were on a later flight and the rest, as they say, is history.

Lolly's surname remained Schneider until she started school at which time it was changed to Gillette. She was named after her father's sister Luella May Gillette - Ingraham.

Lolly married first James Douglas Moffit on 23 Dec 1963; from that union were three issues, two daughters and a son, all still living.

Her second husband was Tommy Joe Wheeler, that marriage ended in divorce and he would go on to marry Lolly's sister Sue, his fifth marriage.

Lolly's last husband was with her until the day she passed away, he is James John Wallin, they married on 12 Mar 1994; he has since remarried.
