Lola Bluford Obituary

Ms. Lola Faye Dixon Bluford, 80, of Mebane, North Carolina returned to her heavenly Father on February 12th, 2024, at UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill, NC. Lola was born to John Dixon Jr. and Lossie Bell Rouse Dixon in Greene County, NC on November 22, 1943.

She loved to shop. One of her favorite pass times was going to yard sales and flea markets looking for a great bargain. She was known by her family and friends as being a great cook which was one of the things she loved to do. She wasn’t a big sports fan but loved watching Michael Jordan play. She enjoyed socializing and catching up with her friends know as “The Golden Girls”. Most of the time they would get together and get a bite to eat. During the winter months she and her sisters would take time to get away and spend time traveling just to get in a little rest and relaxation. Two of their favorite places to visit were Myrtle Beach in South Carolina and the mountains in Gatlinburg, TN.

After graduating high school Lola went on to further her education and attended North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC where she majored in Biology.

Lola leaves to cherish her memories her three children, Eric Randall Bluford (Pastor Keisha), Kelly S. Bluford and Anthony D. Bluford. Her brothers, Henry Dixon, John Ervin Dixon; sisters, Forestine Vaughn, Rev. Margie Greene (Bishop Curtis), Claudia Dixon; grandchildren, Minister Erica R. Bluford, Erice R. Bluford, Erin R. Bluford, Kaylee Watson, Zaria McNeil along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents John and Lossie Dixon, and her brother Willie Dixon.
