What I remember most about Nola was that she was always fun to talk to and always upbeat; nothing could bring Nola down. She was always taking life in stride. I also remember that she never really said bad things about anybody. And although she had a soft side, if a fight was to be had Nola was the first to share her opinion and step into the ring. She didn’t usually start fights, but she was more than capable of finishing them. Some other memories that I have are doing an exercise class with Nola at the Methodist church in Gypsum. She got stuck with her feet over her head and her butt in the air, but thought it all, she still had a great attitude. I vividly remember her getting on a stand-up jet ski and riding it. We kept expecting her to crash into the water at some point but she handled it well and even drove herself right up onto the beach. She was also very handy and good with any tool she picked up. She rarely had to ask for help and was very capable and a quick learner. Her strength was as inspiring as her kindness. Most of all, I will miss her loving nature, mischievous smile and her sweet laugh. Thank you for everything Nola, I love you forever with all of my heart. ❤️ ♥️

When we think of Nola Brock, a feisty woman with unlimited strength and energy comes to mind. But along with that toughness, both passion and grace could be seen in everything that she did. When I started thinking of memories of my Grandma, I found it hard to choose just one to share. In most of my favorite memories though, we were playing poker. I’m actually pretty sure that she taught all of her grandchildren how to play poker. In particular, I remember her teaching me the importance of knowing when to hold ‘em and knowing when to fold ‘em, both in poker and in life. But above all, Grandma had such a deep love for her family, and they were the driving force behind most of her endeavors. She reminded us how important it is to not fight our family, but rather to fight FOR our family. We love you and we miss you Grandma, but we are comforted to think of you keeping our wild bricklayers in line up there. Love, Kevin

My sincere condolences to Morgan Lee, Alan’s family, Vernie, Brian, and ALL the extended Brock Family. What a beautiful, wonderful, woman Nola was and I’m so glad I got to see her this last year. She was exactly the way I remembered her...A truly spirited personality who spoke her mind and heart. Boy did she love her family...each and every one of you! I appreciate the friendship she gave our mom for I remember their laughter in retelling the stories of the kids adventures (and some fights too). May you all be comforted by the wonderful memories! - Love, Sandy

Nola was the best Mother-In-Law I can imagine anyone ever being. She was always supportive and loving but never in a overbearing way. She never judged or put her expectations on me or my children. I will miss seeing her smile.
