Lola Aiken, Widow Of Senator, Dies At 102

Lola Aiken, the widow of former Vermont governor and U.S. Sen. George Aiken, has died.

The Guare and Sons funeral home says Lola Aiken died quietly Monday at an assisted living facility in Montpelier.

The cause of death was not released. She was 102.

Lola Aiken first became known as the chief of staff and later wife of George Aiken, who served as governor from 1937 until 1941 and then U.S. senator. George Aiken died in 1984 at age 92.  He had retired from the Senate in 1975 after 34 years.

In 2012, the Vermont Legislature honored Lola Aiken on her 100th birthday.
