    I have sweet memories of Delois (I always called her Lois) as a wonderful role model to all her children and her many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was so supportive and protective from the time they were babies and throughout their lives. Her kids were the priority in her life. I didn’t see her much in our later years, but she was always easy to talk to and a lot of fun to be around. My prayers go out to her beloved family who feel such a tremendous loss, but also were so blessed to have such an amazing mom who loved them with all her heart. She raised some awesome children who now follow her excellent example as devoted leaders of their own families.
