In 1966, they moved to Marshalltown where Iola worked as a baker at the Iowa Veteran’s Home. Iola and I.O. were divorced in 1966. In 1991, she married Aksel Petersen of Traer where she resided until her death at the age of 95 on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at Sunrise Hill Center. She was preceded in death by her first husband, I.O. Richardson in 1983; her second husband; Aksel Petersen in 2008; her parents; and a brother, Everett Daugherty.
