I knew Lois mostly from seeing her at church at First Congregational UCC or some social gatherings at the church in Appleton. I admired her being an active and interested person as a "senior citizen," a stage that I am approaching myself. She was an inspiration from that perspective.
Lois was friendly and outgoing; she always had a lovely smile and displayed a good sense of humor. I remember a few times when I saw her wearing a lavender cardigan that I believe she had knitted. It was unique and quite beautiful. I admired her artistic skill.
I regret that I can't be at the church or her memorial service on Friday (tomorrow). I send my sincere condolences to Lois' family and many friends.
Heartfelt condolences to Lois' immediate family.
The passing of a parent/ grandparent always hurts deeply and leaves a sense of profound loss. Thoughts and prayers of comfort for you all.
This note was received by Laurie Paulson from her daughter, Barb Paulson McAnnany. Laurie and Lois were college friends and continued their friendship throughout the years. SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT LOIS. SHE WAS A GOOD FRIEND FOR MANY YEARS. I HAVE GOOD MEMORIES OF GOING TO HER HOUSE AND PLAYING WITH JAN. I CAN PICTURE HER SMILE. SHE ALWAYS SEEMED HAPPY. GIVE MY SYMPATHY TO JAN AND LEE AND FAMILIES.
