    My great aunt Lois was one of the most kind hearted people I’ve ever known. I wish I could have lived closer and seen her more over the years, but the memories I do have of her are all wonderful. I bet she is already sitting with her sister, my grandma Bonnie, playing cards and laughing. Sending love and prayers to you all. ~ Maren and family

    Marsha and Judy –
    I am so glad that you contacted me with the sad news about your wonderful Mother’s recent passing. Lois played such a large role in my growing years and those of my family. She was my mother’s dearest friend and was pretty, warm, kind and funny! That she was able to gracefully live to reach “104” years old is just amazing. I have never known anyone over 99..
    You and your families were blessed to have had her with you for so many years. I am still, however, very sorry for your loss.

    Lori Simmons (Nygren)
    and family

    If I am unable to make the service on Friday – please know that my thoughts are with you and that I hold memories of her close to my heart. God Bless You!
