Lois was a devoted Christian, wife, mother, sister, mawmaw, great-grandmother and friend to many. She loved to cook, especially bake. Lois enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren on summer vacations to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. She never shied away from spending time with her Lord and Savior, whether it be at home or at church in her Sunday school class, living out her faith daily for others to see. Lois loved her family immensely and never missed the opportunity to show it through both words and actions. Lois lived an abundant life whose loss is deeply felt by many.
