Lois was a joy to work with during her years at First Northern Consultants. I appreciated her no nonsense approach to the policy service department she managed. She had a wonderful knack being friendly and compassionate while vigilantly pursuing the correct results. For many Fall seasons, we fondly remember Donald managing our football pool and the stir that would follow when Lois or her friend, Bonnie, would win the week's contest. Please accept our condolences on the loss of Lois. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
