Lola was born on January 19, 1931 in Morgan City, the daughter of Ivy Theriot and Edna Landry Theriot.

Lola loved to fish and tend to her flowers and living on the bayou made this easy for her to enjoy. She loved to be in the kitchen cooking for her family, who loved it when she made her famous pralines. She loved spending time with her family, but cherished the time that she got to spend with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She had a love for sewing and made several wedding dresses for family members. She retired from the St. Mary Parish School Board after working for several years. When she had free time, Lola enjoyed taking antiquing trips with her sisters to find the perfect oil can to add to her collection.

Freeman Sr. and wife Gail, Kathleen “Kitty” Freeman Marin, Lori Freeman Rink and husband John Spangler, Melanie Freeman Highfill and husband Jeff, all of Morgan City; 11 grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren; three sisters, Frances Theriot Listi and husband Jerry, Elsie Theriot Aucoin and husband E.J., Debbie Theriot LeBlanc; one brother, Melvin Theriot and wife Alice; one sister-in-law, Mary Lou Theriot; one brother-in-law, Milton Boudreaux.

Lola was preceded in death by her parents, Ivy and Edna Landry Theriot; husband of 71 years, Howard L. Freeman Sr.; one sister, Sherry Theriot Boudreaux; two brothers, Therrol Theriot and Jerry Theriot.
