Iola was born to Emmanuel P. and Ida Mae (Shampine) on March 14,1933 in Cheboygan, Michigan. She married Lawrence S. Vanier on April 17, 1959. Together they had 11 children: Brent (Mary), Gail McNall (Scott), David, Steven, Mitcheal (Kim), Judy Nelson (Doug), Paula, Paul (Ellen Novak), Richard (Kellie Rogers), Curt (Edna), Dawn Daniels (Clay); and two stepsons, William “Bill” Vanier and Victor Vanier.

Iola is survived by two brothers, Robert “Bob” and Earl; a sister in law, Muriel; the above mentioned children; many grandchildren; great grandchildren; nieces, and nephews.
Iola was a wonderful caring person. Her door was always open to anyone. But she was also a strong woman and wasn’t afraid to stand up for herself and family. She made people feel special, whether it was doing something with or for them. Iola enjoyed her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, working on jigsaw puzzles, reading fiction, playing cards, bingo, and an occasional casino trip. Iola loved music and dancing. She always had a grand time when her sisters were around. She was a fabulous cook and made every holiday special.
