I worked with Lois at Women's Healthcare PC when we were on Hwy 41 and Lincoln Ave. Her desk was right next to mine. I did the mammograms and had many duties outside of the actual x/ray exam to keep track of films and keeping records for accreditation. Lois always helped me out however she could. She will always hold a special place in my heart. Your family has my deepest sympathy.
