When I was in 7th grade my family moved to Parkway Drive in Greenville. We lived down the hill from the Clippinger family. Sara and I became best of friends especially during our junior high school days. Lois was always kind to me. I remember the story she had told us of her and Doc on their honeymoon and when he introduced her, he forgot she was now a Clippinger and used her maiden surname. I always thought that was a sweet story! My sincere sympathy to all.

I have just learned of the passing of this precious lady. My first real job was a dental assistant to Dr. Clippinger. He and Lois became my second family. I can’t express how much they both meant to me. I was not only an employee but I was their baby sitter as well as another one of their children!
Lois dearly loved her family. She was the mother I always hoped I would be when I had my own children. I can tell you I failed cause she was the best. Patty was my little flower girl when I married.
I enjoyed looking at all the pictures and it brought back so many sweet memories along with some sad.
I lost touch after moving from Ohio. Heaven has a new bright angel..RIP dear Lois...❤️
