Lola Marie Gray Diamond, age 91, left this world for her home in Heaven 10 January 2020. Lola, the oldest daughter of fifteen children, was preceded in death by her parents Bam and Gus Gray along with brothers A.T., George, Enoch, Bill, Buck, Joe, Dan, Roy, Bobby, and sister, Lena. Siblings left behind are Walter, Mary Jane, Anna Lois, and Beatrice.
Lola lost her loving husband, Lawrence, in 2002 after 53 years of marriage. They raised four children that all survive their mother, Linda Gagliano (Rick), Brenda Sexton, Janie Diamond, and Tim Diamond (Melanie). Lola was lovingly called Mamaw by her seven grandchildren, Dottie Presler, Jennifer Wood, Larry Hume, Warren Oates (Lynette), Whitney Oates, Ashley Vaught (Aaron), and Adam Diamond (Kayla) and her ten great-grandchildren, Chelsea, Harrison, Nicholas, Lance, Gavin, Anaston, Avery, Ethan, Lola, and Hannah. She was Aunt Lola for too many nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews to list here.
Lola worked on the family farm and in a factory that made Levi jeans for 26 years as a Repair Carrier. She was a dedicated caregiver for her mother and disabled brother and in his later years, her husband. Lola loved the Lord and her family. She was a life-long member of Eubank Baptist Church. Lola also loved watching WWE Wrestling and UK basketball, gardening, cooking, and feeding the hungry. We will all hold the many wonderful memories we have of her in our hearts forever.
