Lois enjoyed the simple things in life, such as sewing, knitting, cooking, crafting and cleaning. Lois’ greatest joy came from caring for her children, the neighbor’s children and later her grandchildren.

Besides her parents, Lois was predeceased by her sisters, Wendy (the late Carl) March, Judy (Paul) O’Keefe and brother in-law, Ray Davison.

She will be especially missed by grandchildren, Marcel (Holly), Rhiannon, Brett, and the newest addition to the family, great-granddaughter, Annika; lifelong special friend, Donna Dziubek; as a as well as special niece and nephew, Renee and Raymond, and several other nieces and nephews, who will miss their Auntie Lo. Lois will be greatly missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing her.
