To know Lois, was to love her. She was an avid bowler up until the age of 90. Lois was an active member at the Saint John's United Church of Christ in Boalsburg for many years where she also sang in the choir. She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Boalsburg Fire company. She was an avid PSU football fan, and loved watching football in general. She loved her long walks around Boalsburg up into her 80s. She was a spitfire and loved to laugh. She was the best mother, grandmother, and friend anyone could ask for.
