While I worked at Davis Life Care, I had the privilege of knowing your mom. She was a very nice lady & I enjoyed my interactions with her. My prayers are with you in your loss. Sue Reed

Lois and family, I will pray for all of you during this difficult. Your Mom was a nice and sweet woman. I'm so glad our paths crossed in the 1st grade Lois. I know God is embracing his new Angel and she is with your Dad now.
