  1. I will miss my cousin Lois. She had a friendly spirit, enjoyed life and laughter. My condolences to her family, with their loss. But am sure she is singing beautiful music in heaven.

  2. I am at a loss for words at the loss of such a special friend. I will forever cherish our Beta Phi Sorority moments we had together. You were taken away so suddenly…but I am thankful you are safe in the arms of Jesus and free from pain. Rest well my dear friend, I am going to miss your smile. Sincere sympathies and prayers to you Jessica, Jeremy, Linda and family.

  3. Very sorry for your lose. Lois was a very nice person and loved her family very much. I am happy I got to know her. I will keep you in my prayers

  4. I became acquainted with Lois primarily through the Monday evening Community Dinner at our Wilber UMC church. Lois was a welcoming, vibrant and gregarious “regular.” She often brought a devotional or shared a prayer with the group to open our time of fellowship. She was an example of a healthy spiritual life, and I pray that is some comfort to you as you each walk your path of grief. God Bless.

  5. Dear Jessica, Jeremy, Lois & family,
    We are very sad to learn of the loss of your dear mom & sister. Our hearts hurt for you. We keep you close in thought & prayer as we remember a very special gal! We enjoyed time spent with her through school activities at WC! Heaven received an angel! Sincere sympathy to you!
    Bill & Sheryl Kastanek & family

  6. I knew Lois from Farmland & church. She was one of the kindest persons I’ve ever met. Her beautiful smile & hellos will be missed. A wonderful lady! My thoughts & prayers are with her family during this difficult time. May Lois’ high faith in God bring you comfort in the days ahead.

  7. Jessica,
    I am so sorry to see the news about your mom. She was always the sweetest lady during our clogging days and always had a smile on her face. I can’t imagine what these past few months have been like for you, but please know that you (and Stephanie) are in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that God continues providing strength for you and your family. Sending a big hug…

  8. You are all in our prayers. I could not believe the news of the cancer and then her death following so quickly. James is always so good at notifying me. I am so thankful for that. My dad and I will be able to attend on Wednesday. I am so glad since I have such special memories of Lois. God keep you in His Care.

  9. My sincere sympathy to you. Lois was a dear friend for many years. She had the voice of an angel and a smile that would lite up a room. Always a joyful greeting to everyone. My thoughts and prayers to you and I will have a special Mass said for Lois. Love to you all.

  10. I remember Lois best as my first catholic teacher. She was such an amazing person and truly cared about everyone she met. She was truly an angel and I will miss her greatly.

  11. We are incredibly sorry for your loss. We were very sad to learn of Lois’ death. She was a wonderful person, who smiled through every adversity. Full of love and life is how we will always remember her!
    May God Bless you and keep you
    and make his face to shine upon you!
    And be gracious to you;
    The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
    And give you peace.
