She organized the funeral luncheons for over twenty years and was renowned for her old fashioned raisin pie made from scratch and homemade biscuits that made everyone’s mouth water. She loved to play cards with her family and was a staple at bingo every week. Lois was a sports fanatic and her devotion to the Chicago Bulls and Cubs were strong as bedrock. She also enjoyed watching the Olympics, especially ice skating. In her younger years she and Adam loved to dance to the Tennessee Waltz. No matter what age Lois came to, her hands were always busy helping, baking or crocheting memories that over time have become priceless and will never be forgotten.
