  • Lois was a special lady who will be missed. My prayers and sympathies to the entire family. Pam.

  • Lois was my school principle at Linden Park IGE. I’ll always have fond memories of those days. While I was too young to appreciate it as an adult I can now understand what a huge impact she made on so many lives. You will be missed.

    • All three of my sons went to Linden Park IGE
      Very progressive open classroom school concept for the 80’s
      What a great lady !
      I recently had the opportunity to meet her again in my church group after 35 years.
      Some people in life leave a lasting impression and truly make a difference in so many lives

  • John,

    Lydia and I send are love and prayers to you and your family.
    All of us in Barnes Cove will miss Lois. Ron and Betty send there love as well.

  • We just learned of Lois’s passing through the recent FOLC newsletter. We were so shocked and saddened. We always enjoyed talking with Lois and John when they summered at their Lake Crescent cabin on Barnes Cove where we too spend time. And we hope to see you, John, there this coming summer. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Sincerely, John and Cathie Stetson
