One comment:

  1. I did not see this coming, I just did her hair last Tuesday. She was good then. Well, we know she is home with the Lord. Lois was so delightful to visit with while doing her hair. We had such down south connections, it was like we was back down in Brown or Adams County. I grew up in the Church of Christ in Christian Union in Winchester. Lois knew my daughter-in-law’s parents, Linda and Pat Beihl. My sympathy goes out to the family. I will miss her.
