Lois Quinn grew up in El Campo, Texas and attended El Campo High School as a proud Ricebird. She was editor of the school newspaper and marched in the band. After graduating, she attended Victoria College and met the love of her life, Tom Quinn where they both were in the band, Tom being the drum major. Lois and Tom then followed each other to Baylor University where Lois was a member in the Golden Wave Band. She graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and married Tom on July 1, 1955. After raising her children in Houston, Lois worked for 20 years as the registrar at Conroe High School.
Fondly known as Mama Lois, she’s remembered as a beloved wife, mother, aunt and grandmother. From the time Lois was a young girl, her parents taught her to be true to herself. She became the mother of five children, three daughters and two sons. Lois was a skilled seamstress, in fact she hand-made all of her daughters’ wedding dresses, lined with amazing sequins and beautiful veils. When she wasn’t sewing, she spent time volunteering with WMU, Friends International, Ladies Fellowship, and playing cards with friends. Lois and Tom taught and mentored young married couples at church for many years and chaperoned multiple youth trips and activities. She was an active member of First Baptist Church Conroe for 50 years and a proud member of the Uplifters Sunday School class. Lois loved Jesus and was excited to meet her Savior face to face in heaven. She will be greatly missed.

Brenda, Kay, Lisa, and Greg,
Mom does not have internet so she came to my church where she could watch the streamed service. She loved it. What a beautiful tribute to both Aunt Lois and Uncle Tom. Your family were always there. Your parents were there when my dad died. They were there for my wedding. I spoke to Aunt Lois at times and was always reassured by her love and wisdom. Your dad actually saved my life when we were at Buffalo River once. My love to each of you.

I have such fond memories of "Mrs. Quinn," which started when I was 11 years old. Having Kay as my best friend, I spent a lot of time in their home. Mrs. Quinn treated me like one of her own, always offering me big hugs and smiles and lots of laughter. She was like a second mom to me. In high school, I was grateful to have her encouragement and hugs on an "as needed" basis, because she worked in the school office and always made herself available. She modeled Christian virtue to all who knew her and I am blessed to have known her.

We just wanted to write a quick note to let the whole Quinn family know how sorry we are for your loss. Mama Lois will be dearly missed, but we are sure happy we knew her because she brought all of you into our lives and we have been blessed every day since. We love you all so much!

What a joy to be with family when Momma Lois passed into eternity to see Jesus with her real eyes! We are sad she is not here but thrilled she is with Daddy Tom and her Lord and Savior, Christ the King! Psalms 23 and 121 are our "go to" verses at present!
