  • My dearest Lois, there will never ever be enough words that I can express to you and your family for taking me in as a rebellious teenager. I know I gave you many gray hairs bit you just smiled that smile and gave a lecture but it always ended with honey, I will never forget that you teared me the same as you did Carol, when she painted her wall with deep deep purple you allowed me to paint mine. It was just paint. I love you Lois and I will always carry you in my heart. Rest easy you earned it

  • My memory of Carol’s mom “Lois”was when Carol would take her out to get her hair done and she would post it on Facebook. WOW…did she look good. SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL ❤️I’m sure she will be missed by family and friends. May she Rest In Peace ✌🏻

  • I knew her as a child. Spent most of my life on her block. Went to school with Carol. A wonderful woman. My thoughts and Prayers are with her family at this sad and trying time. I believe as her family believes, we WILL see her again. Rest in heaven.

  • Though I knew her for only a brief time, I marvel at her grace and loving kindness. I am particularly impressed with her zeal and bravery. How I wish I had known her longer.

  • Enjoyed spending time in the summers with my Aunt and cousins back in the 60’s. Miss you all! Heaven has another Angel… and she is with all our love ones !

  • My heart goes out to Lois’s friends and family!! I spent the last 8 months as her aide at The Gables. We had a special connection, she would smile everytime I entered her room which made me feel so special. She was such a caring, amazing woman that I will never forget, and had the most beautiful blue eyes!!! She was so sweet and humble and always told me she loved everything I did for her, just told her it was my job but she made it so very easy because she definitely was one of a kind!!! RIP Lois Elizabeth, you will be missed for sure!!

    • My “thank you” seems so small compared to all you and Gables have done, but it comes from my heart.

      It sounds like you really got to know my grandma, she had a way of making people feel special

      May you be blessed for your kindness

  • I was one of her aides at The Gables! I know we’re not supposed to have “favorite residents” but Lois was absolutely one of my favorites!! She was so sweet and loving! She even handed out Christmas cards to her aides around Christmas time. I still have mine and will always keep it. Have a wonderful time in heaven Lois! ❤
