Lois Ann was one of my first friends. I remember her coming across the pasture to play with me way before we went to kindergarten. I’m so sorry for your loss. Praying for comfort.

My heart is broken over the loss of such a lovely lady. Lois and I graduated from nursing school together. She was a beautiful person inside and out. My sincere condolences to all who know and love her. I can not imagine how many lives she impacted during all her years of nursing. What a life and blessing she was to others! She will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, dear friend.
