Lois was such a faithful friend. She always prayed for the ESL classes. She always had a smile and often a joke for you. We will miss her.

With our sympathy, prayers, and love in the passing of our Beloved Cousin. Lois was always a great connector to family, keeping communications open and reunions happening. She was a gift to her neighbors and church family as she was the visitor to many, often bringing the thoughtful gift with her. She modeled that behavior without a request. I have hoped to be more like her in this connection and visiting of others. She kept up letter writing for another layer of connection. Another of her beautiful gifts. May we remember the light she brought in to our lives and May her life inspire us to share light of this life with others, too.
