After raising their children in NYC they retired to Syracuse in 1996. Lola has lived in Syracuse for 22 years with her sisters. During her retirement years she enjoyed traveling to her homeland as well as Europe with her husband and family members. She was a calming and constant presence in her families lives.

She volunteered at church events and assisted in preparing traditional Ukrainian Foods. At the Nottingham she made many wonderful friends, she enjoyed knitting for the Knit-Wits Club, sang in the community choir with her sisters, and loved playing Bingo.
