Sending sympathy and prayers for the family. Lois and I were friends and classmates in high school. I remember her being an excellent cook, even back then, in our Home Ec class. Lots of memories from our high school days. I also enjoyed knowing her parents and brother. However, we lost touch in recent years. I know she will be missed.

I am so sorry to learn about this loss. I enjoyed my conversations with her very much. I lived to stop at the tavern when she was working. She was a hoot for sure. Just as I loved stopping to see her mother, Mary, in my younger years. She will truly be missed by all that had the opportunity to know her. God Bless and be free. My condolences to all of the family.
