Lola Jean (Koranda) Puckett was born July 7, 1945 in Wadena, Minnesota. She was one of seven children raised by Donald and Ave Koranda. She met her husband Dennis while he was stationed at the air force base in Wadena.

They were married on April 11, 1964. Lola and Dennis moved to Des Moines, Iowa after Dennis completed his military service. They were proud parents of three children: Laurie, Denny, and Trishia. Lola was a wonderful wife and homemaker while the children were being raised. She later worked for over 20 years at Bank of America.
