Lola Terrol Howard celebrated her final sunset on January 31 passing in the early hours of February 1, 2020 in Savannah GA.
Lola had a bit of gypsy in her soul, and lived in diverse locales from Vermont, New Hampshire, Colorado, California, DC, Virginia, Florida and Georgia to France and Australia.
Lola loved horses, sailing and her Havanese, Trouble. She is survived by family and friends worldwide.
In lieu of flowers, Lola’s friends and family are encouraged to raise a gin and tonic and toast the sunset. A memorial service will be planned soon.
So sad to hear the news about Lola! My heart goes out to her sons & close friends, especially Debbie & Abby. I met Lola during Bob’s & her ill-fated motor yacht transfer trip from Islamorada in the Florida Keys. We never made it to Jacksonville due to Bob’s illness - I had to rent a car and drive them home. I visited Lola in JAX several months later & helped her sort out belongings on the boat and in the storage locker. And this past NOV I stopped by her Savannah apartment for a short visit. I’m so glad I did! Lola truly was an original - an amazing woman - she excelled at so many things: Sailing, horses, reading and writing - she even self-published a book on Amazon. She was gifted in nurturing animals, and her devotion to “Trouble” unparalleled: I saw this when I drove her to Gainesville FL to a university veterinary clinic for a special appointment for Trouble. Lola also introduced me to John D. MacDonald’s wonderful “Travis McGee” adventure series - I will always remember her for this. Lola truly enriched my life. And with Lola’s passing, a bright light has departed this world. I will miss her.

I spent my high school years at Sanborn Seminary in Kingston , NH with Lola and yes, she was a "gypsy" even then. Many years later she would fly up from Virginia to attend reunions and stay with me I remember her working on her novel while floating in my rowboat. She led an interesting life and I'm glad to have known her.
