Lois was the oldest of us 4 siblings. I was the youngest. Lois was a wonderful cook, great seamstress and cared for her younger siblings. She was so efficient in sending greeting cards and interesting letters. She was a Christian. I can find peace in knowing she is with her heavenly family. I will surely miss you, Lois.
Love you 
Your sister Gay

I am going to miss my sister, Lois Ann, so very much. Lots of memories growing up on our farm and walking to the little one room school house (Lee School) or to meet the school bus after we attended school in Bunceton, Mo.  It was a very sad day for our family when she graduated high school & moved to Kansas City, Mo. to seek employment as back then it seemed so far away - not like it is today with better roads & automobiles. Rest in Peace with your new home in Heaven. Love & missing you, Jenny
