Lois traveled and lived around the world with her husband and sons as they served their country faithfully in the United States Army. She graduated from Syracuse High School and was very proud of never missing a day or being tardy. She was a member of Cromwell United Methodist Church., enjoyed crafts, chatting on the phone, and spending time with her friends. She also loved to golf in her earlier years. Lois had an incredible memory and was blessed to keep her sharp wit to the very end.
In keeping with her wishes, no public visitation or services are planned. A cremation committal will take place at Legacy Cremation & Remembrance Center. The family will host a celebration of life gathering at a later date.
