Aunt Lois, what a beautiful, caring, gentle, special woman. I have many fond childhood memories with her and Uncle Kenny, and my cousins Kathryn, Ann and Lorie. It is a truly sad day for all of her close family. God has called her home to dwell eternally with all the special people who have passed before her. She will be missed dearly. My love and sympathy go out to all.
Have many good memories of my aunt Lois, uncle Kenny and their children (my cousins). Always enjoyed when they would stop in for a visit, she was a kind person and will be missed. Steve.
Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I’m so sorry for your loss.
