  • Lois and I became friends when I joined the Women’s City Club of Delaware in 2009. She loved to serve our important mission to provide housing and support to low income women. A dedicated volunteer. She cared about others and would always help with important projects. Our hearts go out to Bud and the rest of her family. We will miss her too.

  • I knew Lois for only a short time , but she always left me with a smile. Debra Maxson.

  • Bud and Family,
    We think of your family as an extension of our own. We are sad to know Lois is gone and we’ll cherish her memory. Much love to all of you.
