Nola Shuler December 31, 1924 - August 29, 2018 On August 29, Nola Bolton Shuler, peacefully left this earthly life to return to our Heavenly Father. We feel certain Dad came to get her. Nola was born December 31, 1924 in Kemmer, Wyoming to Clarence and Ilah Bolton. She was the third child and only girl of 5 children. Nola attended schools in Conda and Soda Springs, Idaho. She graduated as salutatorian of her class. She Married her high school sweetheart, George W Shuler Jr. on June 19, 1943 in Wayne, Nebraska while he was in cadet training. They were later sealed in the LDS temple. They are parents of four children, Karen, Alan, Kirk and Annette. Other than a few months at a time in Nebraska, while George was in the service, Nola has lived her entire adult life in Soda Springs where she still resided in the home they purchased in 1951.

She held several positions in the primary and relief society, was stake primary clerk, compassionate service leader and was currently her ward and stake historian.
