Mrs. Meason was born on September 26, 1924 in Munich, Germany, to Joseph and Anneliesa Iblacker. She had a happy childhood despite being affected at times by the upheaval of WWII. Her love for the magnificent mountains nearby was very strong and she spent many happy days there. She shared that love with Herbert, whom she met in 1950, while working as a secretary for the United States Air Force. They married in 1952. She came to the United States and became a US citizen in 1954.
After traveling with the Air Force, they settled in Charleston, South Carolina in 1973. She fell in love with Charleston and knew the city intimately. Her favorite place to wander was the Audubon Swamp Garden at Magnolia Gardens where she loved to take her three darling granddaughters and teach them about nature.
Lola was very proud to serve as a volunteer at the Charleston Air Force Base Pharmacy for 20 years, and was awarded for her dedication.
She is survived by her daughter, Monica Dainer, and her husband Paul, of Augusta, GA; her son, Charles Meason, and his wife, Elizabeth, of Asheville, NC; her brother, Karl Iblacker, of Munich, Germany; her granddaughters, Erin, Caroline, and Nicki; her great granddaughter, Joon Karoline; her niece, Elisabeth Fischer; her cousin, Karola Mueller; and a number of family members who cherished her.
