Great lady and was a wonderful example in serving her God through her actions and words. She was always kind to me and my wife, Linda, ever since we joined FBC-Weslaco in 1980. Encouraged that we will see her again because of the hope we share in Christ. May God's grace fill the hole of loss that was created in her passing is our prayer.

Mrs. Pinson and my mother Exa Ellison were in WMU together at First Baptist Church.. She was dedicated to her church and her friends and always had a warm "hello" and smile when I saw her. She and Mr. Pinson set a Christian example to everyone who knew them. We on earth have lost a loving person, but God has gained an angel.

Lola Beth was one of my mother's (Dorothy Drake) best friends in life, they worked together for many years at GTE and remained friends and talked on the phone weekly for the last several years while both were living in assisted living. Lots of telephone stories were shared. Lola Beth was always upbeat and enjoyed people and life. I know my mother will miss Lola Beth dearly...she loved her so much. Bryan Drake and Family

CandleI don't know if anyone will remember me, but I remember Lola, and the Pinson family. My name is Shirley Austin Carter...My parents, Arthur and Ruby (Jo) lived on mile 8 and mile 4, down the road. I have been away from Weslaco for many years. But I saw the obit, and wanted to say hello, and my sympathy to the family.
