|Lola Mae Edwards Rector Chism|
|Linda Gray, Lola's oldest dgt|
Before she began to show signs of mental illness, Lola Mae was as good a mother as she knew how to be. Her children were never left alone by themselves or with babysitters. Wherever she went she took them with her. Although she did not have the cooking talents of her mother, Imogene, she managed to cook good enough to feed her family. She did not drink alcohol or do drugs.
When Lola Mae was 35 she married her second husband, George Chism, 50, May 2, 1969. He had been married to a woman our grandmother, Leora Fowler Sterling, raised from a small child. Lola and George had no children together. He was the stepfather to four children from a previous marriage to Bernice, the woman Leora raised.
