Lydah was born July 9, 1972 to parents Donnie Ray and Marilyn Kay (Ross) Lafolette in Trenton, Missouri.
Lydah Ann left us November 11, 2020.-Veterans Day which is fitting because she loved her country and those who serve.
She loved her family and friends more than anything. Her life was full of giving and love.
The words that describe her are fierce, loyal, big hearted, lion hearted, bossy, brave, determined, stubborn, hardworking, proud..... So proud that she could do things that everyone said she couldn’t. What a mistake!
Her most recent accomplishment was her job with the Department of Corrections as a cook. She was a good cook. Her specialty was chicken and noodles.
She wasn’t the kind of person to say goodbye. She would instead say see you later.
