Lois what can I say you took my heart and breath away some 30 plus years ago when I had the pleasure of staying with you and just recently you kindly gave me your bed. I will never forget you and the Angel you gave me will always hold a very special place in my heart. I wish I could be with you all to celebrate this amazing ladies life but my love and thoughts are with you all. If we all could be half the person you were Lois the world would indeed be a better place. RIP dear sweet lady. My life is only better for knowing you and having your family accept me as one of them this I hold very dear and always will. Love you and never every stop Dancing :) xxx

Grandma, I wish I could have taken the time to tell you how one of a kind you truly were. Always full of love and laughter. Such a family oriented woman always caring for those near your heart. I’ll always cherish the memories we had at the cottages, jays games , or even just spending time at your house. We will miss you deeply. Say hello to heaven my angel . Sending our love to you and grandpa up there , and to all the family and friends who knew you. Rest in piece xoxo
When i think of this lady ,I have nothing but glowing fondness and love. I first met her when i was 12 years old 53 years ago. I at that time was running wild . As the years passed by she became my 2nd mother who would twist my ear and set me straight and make sure i was full. I have only seen her a few times since i moved away in 1976 but when i did see her it was oh so sweet. I have always loved you lois and will continue to love you for the rest of my days. To the family I am so so sorry for your loss and i love you all.
