Lola Oakes

On November 7, 2021, Lola, age 91 of Stamford, CT, passed away peacefully.
Lola was a strong and independent woman who lived a full life dedicated to her family. She was a giving and loving person who was always thinking of and doing for others. She was affectionately known by everyone as G-Lo, a nickname for Grandma Lola given to her by her grandchildren, Allison and Andrew. Lola always had a smile and filled the room with her infectious laugh. She was preceded in death by her father Harold McGuire, mother Loretta (Dinota) and two brothers, Joseph and Richard. Lola is survived by her two sons, Gary and Robert; four grandchildren, Allison, Andrew, Misty, and Heather; and four great-grandchildren, Casey, Courtney, Collin and Chandler.
She will be laid to rest at St. Joseph Cemetery in Babylon, NY with her father and mother in a private family service.
The Nicholas F. Cognetta Funeral Home & Crematory is honored to assist the family with the arrangements.
