I will always remember Naomi’s mom as kind, spirited, and caring. During my early high school years, Mrs. Christensen always welcomed me into her home and was never short of providing snacks or great conversation. Sitting on the front porch on that massive (to me) home she provided me with sound advice and stability that would carry me through some rough times as she always wanted to know what I was interested in and how I would go about doing it. That level of caring I never really got at home and I thank God for people like Lois in my life. She may never have realized how much my life was blessed by her simple kindness. My condolences to her family in this time of loss.

My deepest sympathy to Naomi, Georgia and Richard. I have many happy memories of our days at Community United Methodist Church, Brookfield, IL.
Community was an active church at that time. Lois was a great influence then. She was a kind and pleasant person. Wonderful family photos. Ruth Garnett
