In the 1970’s Lois was Warren Township Clerk, cared for her foster children, and made many clever and beautiful birthday and wedding cakes. She was a member of Good Hope Lutheran Church in Zoarville.
Her children tell the story that many her neighborhood would often say, “I have never met her, but I love that woman!” She was always in her yard working, right up to the month before she passed, she smiled and waved to everyone. Lois was such a kind and beautiful soul. Her children were blessed to have such a wonderful caring mother. She and Galen taught them love, kindness, and faith in our Lord. Her children weep because they will miss her so much, but they rejoice because she now has seen the face of God. Lois has left this body and is now rejoicing in the Heavens.
