To the best sister I could ever wish to have, you will be missed so much. It is very hard to say “Goodbye “, something we never said when talking to each other. Your “Lil Sis” loved you more than words can say. With Loving Memories, Joanne

I always knew Lois as Cath’s Mom. I always thought of her as youthful, kind & sweet. Always had a smile when I had an encounter with her. I am so grateful to her as a Mother for raising such wonderful children. Cathy is the one I’ve known for many years. Thank you Mom Lois for giving her to this world! She really knows how to be a friend & is a delight to the world. May God Richly Bless You & Your Children. RIP dear Lois. 🌷🥰🙏🏽

Lois was my daughter Jeni's boss for at least 15 years. For those of you who know Jeni and knew Lois, you know that was an absolutely perfect boss/employee situation! I'm forever grateful for her willingness to give my spitfire kid the opportunity to make her living in the best establishment in Shasta County. I'll miss you, Miss Lois.

My Mamma! My Mom would let me know if she disliked the color of my hair or the cut, what I was wearing, you name it (so like Moms) but she would also let me know when she did like something so I was always conscious about my appearance, which was good, so have to give her credit for that & much more.
I never doubted the love she had for her kids. I will miss our Monday talks.

Lois had a beauty that was timeless and was also one of classiest Women I have had the pleasure to meet. It was an honor to be welcomed as part of her family. She will be missed by us all.
