Obituary for Lola Marie Skaggs

Lola Marie (Middleton) Skaggs, daughter of the late Jessie and Elma (Long) Middleton, was born June 27, 1935, in Mountain Grove, Missouri. She passed away May 1, 2019, at her residence in Mountain Grove. She was 83 years, 10 months, and 4 days of age.

Lola and Archie Skaggs were united in marriage on June 28, 1951. One daughter, Phylis Jean, was born to this union. She was saved in June of 1951 at Bado at a revival held by Rev. Derrel Friend. She attended Calvary Temple church in Mountain Grove for many years. The last few years she attended Dawson Assembly of God.

She and Archie were a team, as she helped him on many projects. She loved the outdoors, whether it was fishing, although she didn’t like the worms, or gardening. She always had beautiful flowers. She also loved to sew and could sew anything from clothing to quilts. She also loved to crochet and taught her granddaughter how to crochet.

Lola loved entertaining family and friends. She made the best rolls and cakes. Everything she set her hands to do she did it well. Everything was always neat and in place when she was around.

She loved her family and enjoyed taking care of her grandchildren.

Besides her parents, Lola was preceded in death by two sisters, Irene Bradshaw and Jean Shaw.

She is survived by her husband of the home, Archie, one daughter, Phylis Jean Cobb and her husband, Denny, of Springfield, Missouri, one sister, Wanda Gaddis and her husband, Maxie, of Mountain Grove, Missouri, two grandchildren, Jodi Lyman and her husband, Sean, and Derrick Sherrell, two step grandchildren, Lindsay McCormick and her husband, Bryan, and Terah Pfeffer and her husband, Robert, five step great-grandchildren, and many other relatives and friends who will miss her very much.
