Lola M. (Borgedahl) Nash, 87, passed away on Thursday, July 28, at the Atrium Post Acute Care Center of Lancaster after a long illness. 

She was born on July 25, 1929 to Sygrid and Dena (Grimsled) Borgedahl on the family farm in rural Ferryville,  (which is currently Sugar Creek Bible Camp). She was baptized and confirmed at Utica Lutheran Church. She attended high school in Gays Mills. She married Samuel Nash in 1947 at Freeman Lutheran Church in Ferryville. They raised five children. The family moved to Prairie du Chien in 1965 and attended St Peter Lutheran Church. 

In addition to being a farm wife and homemaker, she worked her early years in several restaurants as a cook. She worked at 3M from 1967 until she retired in 1990 to care for grandchildren. Later she returned to work for another 13 years at Walmart and permanently retired in 2008. 

She enjoyed cleaning and when she wasn’t cleaning, she spent her time taking care of those in the family that needed her the most. She loved strawberry shakes from Hardee’s, old records from singers of days gone by and feeding the ducks at the Villa Louis pond. Her most prized possessions were her grandkids and her family pictures from long, long ago. 

She is survived by three sons and one daughter, Randy of rural Ferryville, Curtis of Menomonee Falls and Terry (Cheryl) Nash of Trempealeau and daughter Jill (Jeff) Henry of Prairie du Chien; eight grandchildren and five great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Darlene (Peter) Hamilton of Belvidere, Ill.; and sisters-in-law, Gloria Borgedahl of La Crosse and Juanita Nash of Madison. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; her sons John and Dale; and her ex-husband Sam; her sister DeLaura Nelson; brothers Thorvald and Trygve Borgedahl. Also preceding her in death was a very favorite Aunt Ann Emerson and her daughter-in-law Mary (Coorough) Nash.

Services were held at Garrity Funeral Home in Prairie du Chien on Sunday July 30, 2016. Burial followed at Evergreen Cemetery.
