We are so sorry for your loss. We have been praying for Lois and also for you, Glenn, as her caregiver. So thankful that we were able to connect at Appleton Alliance and then really create a friendship at Primetimers at Calvary and of course our Ladies Red Hat lunches. What a fun time. We have missed her and will continue to miss her and her beautiful smile! May God bring His peace and comfort to you in the days ahead.

Much love from Arkansas. I will miss Aunt Lois teaching us new card and domino games. We shared many laughs and smiles around the dining room table over food and games. I will never see a beautiful red bird and not think of how she loved them. Much love to our WI family!

Lois was a kind and generous person. She lived her faith by being the hands and feet of Christ on Earth. Her life deeply effected my own. I will always remember Lois, her kindness to me after my brothers' death. I will honor her memory by paying that kindness forward in the belief that even small ripples will eventually create great change.

Remembering Lois and the Wagner family from childhood days at Appleton 1st Assembly of God. I wish to express my deepest sympathies to the family. Lois is with those who have gone before and is in the presence of her Savior, Jesus, our Glorious Hope. He has said, "Welcome home, my child, welcome home."
