I met Lois almst two yrs. ago when I began working at Teresian House. It took no time to see how beloved this witty woman was to staff and her family. We were blessed to have her here with us over the many years. Thank you to all of the family who became part of our family and our other residents as well. I am sure the loss of this woman weighs heavily on your hearts but I trust you have beautiful memories and some amazing stories to carry with you. Sheila Geist

Lois was not only a neighbor, but a friend as I was growing up. A very special person. Thoughts and prayers to her family, who she loved very much.
