Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Melody Elaine Lollar, age 58

Melody Elaine Lollar, 58, of Austin passed away peacefully on January 5, 2024 in Austin, Arkansas. She was born on September 11, 1965, to Robert Daugherty and Francis McLain-Daugherty in El Paso, Texas.

Melody was known to many as Melody, Mel, or Momma, but no matter what you called her, you loved her. She enjoyed music, sweet tea, and kindness. Her favorite pastime was sharing patience and peace. She grew respect out of compassion in lieu of fear and her nurturing influence is a legacy we all share. She embodied God’s Good and she showed us how to live in love.

Melody was a paternal mother to 5, but held a mother role to many more. She is survived by her Children Gina Lollar-Ball, Elaina Lollar, Alisa Lollar-Flores and husband Adam Flores, Jonathan Lollar and wife Kateri Lollar, and Anna Louise Lollar; Son in law Ben Rogers, her grandchildren Emily Lollar-Ball, Hayden Rogers, Vera Lollar-Rogers, Harmony Lollar-Rogers, Elex Lollar-Rogers, and Briggs Lollar-Rogers; her mother Francis McClain- Daugherty; her brother Henry Daugherty and her sisters Katrinka Daugherty-Jett and Faith Daugherty-Wurl; Brother in law Jim Smith; Brother in law James Lollar and wife Kat Lollar, Sister in law Linda Lollar-Clark; many nieces and nephews; as well as a host of extended family and friends.

She is preceded in death by her husband Robert Lollar; father Robert Daugherty; her brother-in-law John Clark; her aunt Hellen Lollar; her nephew Josh Lollar; and her son-in-law Andrew Ball.

Melody is loved, fulfilled, and home. She was a blessing and testimony that will live on until we meet again.

“Me, as in you………

The rock, the anchor, the glue.

You are our anchor in this crazy sea…

You try to help so many get to where they need to be.

You calm, you love, you teach.

You heal, you train, you preach.

Why not make it today…..

I love you more than I can say…..”

– Melody & Robert Lollar

    You were always a glimmer of hope. Soft spoken and tender-hearted. You WILL be missed.
    There were many times especially in Junior High you shared Words of Wisdom. I had the honor to work with Henry at PBCDF.
    I love you.

    Running the back trails of Hardin without a care in the world! I’ll remember those times the most! Love and Peace.

    There are no words. You have always had a heart of gold and a child of God.
    We have done lots as kids from being a part of the family, spending the night the hay loft of the barn to anything else we could get into. You touched the lives of many and will be missed. Fly high Mel.
    Love to all

    Mel, even though I haven’t seen you in a while I still have some of my best memories of time I spent with you. When we went to private Christian school together, weekends hanging out and even at the hospital when you had your tonsils out. I’ll cherish those memories and look forward to us hanging out again one day when I get to heaven♥️ I’ll be praying for you Mom and your children, grandchildren and siblings and many friends for peace and comfort as they navigate life without you. Love you friend.

    I am so sad to see this. Melody was a great part of our Stagecoach PTO. She was always so helpful and always had a smile. She certainly loved her children. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  • Aunt Betty Atchley Posted January 13, 2024 4:26 PM

    My deepest condolences to Melody’s loving family during this time of loss of our beautiful lady Melody. What a soft spoken voice she had that spoke volumes to many as she was so positive and Godly to everyone she met. May she rest in peace and may her children enjoy a peace that surpasses all understanding as they grieve their loss.

    Hey Melody, just wanted to tell you to rest in peace and God’s grace.

  • Penny J Silvey Posted January 15, 2024 3:49 AM

    You were kind to me, and a sweet friend when others weren’t. I remember show and tell in 1st grade and you brought goats milk for the entire class! Ha! I was just talking about that tonight, right before I found out you were gone. You are loved and will always be remembered, and missed. ❤️

    Prayers for Melody’s family and friends and all who love her. May God give them comfort and peace.
