Yola was raised in Cambridge, MA, where she was a graduate of Cambridge High School. In 1959 she moved to Chelmsford where she lovingly raised her four boys. She worked at Union National Bank for a time, and was a member of the Supreme Emblem Club. Yola was an active parishioner at St. Mary Parish, Chelmsford for many years.
