I will never, EVER forget singing a quartet at the Crystal River United Methodist Church with Ronda and our beautiful mothers (Ronda and I were in high school)! We were terrified, but our moms were not. Lovely lady.❤

Some words we provided for Mom’s funeral service:
“ From the early 1970’s through the mid 1980’s, Lois worked in the True Value hardware store that her sister, Dorothy owned and managed in Homosassa. For the longest time, this was the only hardware store in the area. The lady knew her hardware and could school even the most knowledgeable contractors on virtually anything hardware related. She could fix just about anything. She left the local hardware store and worked as the Hardware Department Manager at the Inverness WalMart from 1987 until she retired in 2005.

Lois had a couple of hobbies to include sewing, reading and gardening with gardening being her favorite. Tom has always said, “Mom could plant a dowel rod and grow an oak tree from it!”

Mom’s perfect day after retirement would have been working with her plants. If you knew Mom, you’d know that she was a barefoot, garden loving women; she wore shoes to Church, beyond that, the lady was barefoot. That being the case, she’d shuffle off to the yard and often times would spend the entire day pruning, planting, and watering her plants (she’d often forget to get something to drink for herself). When she wasn’t in the garden she would love to visit with her grand and great-grandchildren (you can see the love in her eyes in the video we just saw). When visiting with Jen, Mandy and Melody, she always wanted to help and loved helping to fold clothes (she didn’t even mind folding the socks, which the girls didn’t like doing!).

In her later years, Mom suffered from many ailments and the one thing that stood out is, she never moaned or complained. One would never know that she had part of a lung removed or that she had three other serious lung problems, she moved a little slower but never mentioned being in pain or out of breath.

She was a remarkable lady, a good friend to her neighbors, and above all a caring and loving Mom, Grandma, and GEE GEE MA!

She’ll be missed and will be Loved forever.

Our deepest condolences to you and your family during this time. Your mother was an amazing woman and she will truly be missed. Her kindness was contagious and her memory will live on forever.
A mother is with us always, first in her lifetime, then forever in our memory. I will always remember that big smile she always had.

Aunt Lois was such a source of joy. From a kind word and warm smile to being a superb prankster at times. She will be missed terribly by those left behind as she joins Uncle Bob and loved ones already passed. Her world was her family and she was so proud of the one her Ronnie and Tom brought to her. May her love and sweet memories of times together bring you peace in the days to come.

I worked with Lois at Wal-Mart in Inverness for several years. She's such a wonderful lady, always. We spent lots of time together with customers' specialty colored paints...drove her nuts.
Gods peace be with the family in this time of sadness.
