  1. Lois and I graduated together in Franklin, Ne. She was a great lady and good friend. I saw her last at our 50th reunion in Vegas.We had a wonderful time. We also corresponded every Christmas and I wondered at this last Christmas if her health had failed even more,since I didn’t hear from her but I had no wait to contact her except by her mail address. She was so full of fun and life at the reunion and it was my pleasure to let her use my “scooter” for the long walks at the Hotel. I will miss her greatly. My deepest sympathies to all of the family.

  2. In the early 1950s, I was Lois’ teacher in 6-8th grades in a little country school south of Franklin, NE. Lois was such a smart pretty little red haired girl. It made me cry to see her obit and picture in the Franklin Chronicle and to read that she had lost so many family members. I have thought of her so often through the years. Her siblings Dennis, Rodger and Carol were also my students, and also redheads. I loved them all. The statement, \You will never forget a redhead\ is really true. It was a little community of such nice people and one of them Paul Copley is now my mail carrier on a Blue Hill, NE route.
    I extend my sympathy to all for their loss of dear sweet Lois.

  3. My prayers are with you all. I wish I could be there for you all but it is impossible. Know I am there in spirit though.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful person and I know will be missed very much. I loved having her for a sister-in-law. My prayers are with you all.

  5. We are sorry for your loss, our greatest sympathy. May Aunt Lois rest in peace.
    Condolences from Rob and Belinda
