My sister was a kind and generous person. When I was born in 1949, she was already married with two children, Linda and Mike. I was the last of seven children. Lois was a loving mother and sister.
Lois was a faithful Catholic. She supported her faith and church. Lovely, she will be missed by all who knew and loved her....

R.I.P., sister.... May God carry you in the palm of his hand.
