Lola Joyce Yelland, 90, of Sheffield, Iowa, passed away Thursday, November 7, 2019, at the Sheffield Care Center. She was born on July 6, 1929, in Winnetoon, Nebraska, to Adolph and Ethel (Stevens) Jacot. Lola was baptized on September 23, 1930, at the Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Lola attended grade school in Winnetoon, Nebraska, country schools in Bolan, Iowa and Sheffield, Iowa, freshman and sophomore years in Hansell, and graduated from Sheffield High School. She also attended Drake University for one year.

Lola worked at the Sheffield Care Center for five years, and Mercy Hospital in Mason City for ten years as a nursing assistant. She also volunteered at the Sheffield Care Center, and was a board member there for six years and as well as a resident advocate there for several years.

Lola enjoyed playing cards, especially 500, working in her yard, taking care of her flowers, playing the piano, solving jigsaw puzzles, watching sports and game shows, making and decorating birthday cakes for all, and was especially known for her decorating for the holidays. Most of all, Lola enjoyed being with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Sheffield, the United Methodist Women, the Red Hat Society, and PEO.

Lola is survived by her son Jeff (Teresa) Yelland of Centerville, son Dan (Connie) Yelland of Sheffield, daughter Sue (Steve) Ralston of Waterloo, daughter Pam (Tracy) Ingham of Rockford, grandchildren Todd (Wendy) Yelland, Kelly (Doug) McAllister, Josh Yelland, Ian (Nicole) Ralston, Emerald Ralston, Allison (Ian) Saunders, Jessica Koleno, Torin Ingham and Trista Ingham, great-grandchildren, Andrew, Cayden, Dustin, Makena, Braden, Clayton, Ethan, Myla, Evelyn and Gavin along with several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents Adolph and Ethel, brother Robert Jacot and sister-in-law Darlene (Hollatz) Jacot.

Dear Jeff and family,
When I saw the last name, I thought "that must be Jeff's mom." (You and I played basketball against each other "a few years ago". I was at Rockwell-Swaledale...but I hear we're all on the same team now.) Just wanted to express my condolences on the loss of your mother. My folks have been with the Lord for several years. My heart is filled with fond memories of them. I pray that you and your family will be comforted with many precious memories of your life together--which those family photos show quite well. It has been said that "friendship multiplies our joy, and divides our sorrow." May those words ring true for you as well. God bless you all!
Gary W. Hansen, Tallahassee, FL
