As a member of the Young at Heart Club, I knew Lois. She was a cheerful lady who often made us laugh. An Easter bonnet, needed for a contest, found Lois wearing a sand pail upside down on her head! So funny and charming. She volunteered to call club members about events coming up at our meetings. Even when she was unable to attend, Lois continued making the calls. I called to chat with her until her voice was too low to understand over the telephone. I will miss her spirit and friendship.

I am Clara Kelly and I grew up in Pleasant Grove Methodist. Mrs. Munford was always so sweet and went out of her way to speak to me. She was always special to me. I know y'all are comforted knowing where she is and that you will get to see her again.

I was a college roommate of Cindy Lou in the late 70s. When I married in 1982, Mrs. Munford made me her special “Mississippi Mud Cake” to take along on my honeymoon. It was the best treat ever!

I am so proud of the way George and Lou were by Mrs. Munford’s side on a daily basis. God bless the family!
