Lola Yellen of Fishkill, New York and Daytona Beach, Florida died peacefully on Tuesday, August 6th, surrounded by her family and friends. She was 91 years of age.

After graduating from NYU, Lola worked for the Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation in New York City and volunteered at the New York City Mission Society.
Lola married Donald Yellen of Fishkill, New York in 1954 and together they raised six children. In later years Donald and Lola made another home in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Lola was among the founding members of the Fishkill Historical Society and was very active in the early workings of the Van Wyck Homestead. She was a member of the Marian Guild of St. Mary’s Church in Fishkill, and a loyal volunteer of Blodgett Memorial Library.
Along with her husband Donald, Lola was an active member of the Dutchess County Conservative Party and the Hudson Valley Right To Life Committee.

My condolences to the Yellen family for your loss. Lola was one of those special people that I will never forget. Our friendship began many years ago and her smile and laugh always made my heart lighter. As a volunteer at Blodgett Library in Fishkill, she cheerfully did any library task asked of her and I treasure the time we worked together. RIP, Lola, my friend. Doris Free, Broad St., Fishkill

Mrs Paul (Renee) Jurgensen Posted at 02:21pm

Heartfelt condolences go out to all of Lola’s family. I have many fond memories of the Yellen family when we lived in the big White House in Fishkill. Time fast forwards taking us all to different corners of the world, however memories remain. As you grieve the loss of Lola May you find comfort in the wonderful life she led and the legacy that she leaves behind. Finally after all these years she is reunited with Don and others that have gone before her. May she RIP in the Kingdom of heaven in the presence of Jesus and all the angels and saints. May the Lord have mercy on your soul and grant peace And comfort to your family. Fondly, Mrs Paul (Renee) Jurgensen, Florida
