Lola Morgan, 85 years,  Goodman, passed away on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017 at Medicalodge in Neosho.
Lola was born in Jane,  on Feb. 7, 1932,  one of 11 children born to the late M.J. and Mary (Allman) Nichols. She attended the White Rock Elementary and Rocky Comfort High School. Lola was a graduate of the Crowder College Nursing Program in 1979.  
She married Junior Morgan on March 26, 1949 in Bentonville, Ark. He passed away on Nov. 9, 1975.  
Lola worked at the former St. John's Hospital in Joplin and retired from there in 1994. She then worked at Beverly Health Nursing and Rehab from 2001 to 2004; Oxford Health Care in Joplin from 2005 to 2008. Then retired for good at the age of 76 years and nine months.
