Memories Timeline


  1. Tom and Mary Pat Walton

    I’ll miss my time with Lois. Our many breakfasts together and conversations. She was a good friend and sage counselor! We’d often talk about our kids, grandkids and in Lois’s case great grandchildren. Our breakfasts came to a halt with the advent of Covid. We still talked often on the phone, I’ll truly miss the talks with my friend. Rest in peace my friend, till we meet again.

  2. Elder Michael and Nicole Stroughter

    Our condolences to this wonderful family. We have heard so many great things about this beautiful angel. I believe Heaven is rejoicing and to receive such a flower. To the family, continue to let your light shine and continue to heal. Lois has done a beautiful job showing and guiding you the way she loved on other as you will continue to keep her alive through her dreams. She will be remembered and truly missed.
