Lois is with Paul now which is a blessing. She SO missed him. We just heard of her passing via our Willow Valley neighbor. As we are in Arizona, we will be unable to attend her memorial but will be thinking of you all with thoughts and prayers.
Bill and Susanna Knodt (CWN’s- this is how Lois referred to us as next door neighbors when she lived at the Gables”

Your Mom was so very special to our family. Will remember so many enjoyable times together and lots of laughter! She was always happy to hear from me when I called and hear news about the family. Will miss her. Our love, thoughts and prayers to you and the family.

I wish to offer sympathy to the family of Lois, who was a good neighbor and friend. I regret that I will be unable to attend the funeral service to honor Lois.

Condolence from Wendy Taylor on March 22nd, 2017 12:06 pm

Lois had that sharp wit of the New England style that made me smile while others were not so sure. Lois had much to offer, but she lost much of her enthusiasm when Paul died. Her wish to join him became stronger and stronger. We will miss her, but she is happy to move on

Condolence from Mary Whitlatch on March 22nd, 2017 3:13 pm

Lois will be missed…her smile, her wit and her generous spirit! Heaven has gained an Angel. Sorry I will miss the Celebration of her life on Friday.

Dear Linfield family,
Gar y and I were so sad to hear of Lois’s passing. We joined First Church in 1981. Being a young family with 2 little boys and pregnant with our daughter, we quickly became friends with your parents, Paul and Lois. They were very welcoming, sweet and kind to our family. We loved them both so much.!! And I know they loved us. A fond memory we have is when we attended our first All Family Church Retreat when our daughter was just about 2 years old. Paul and Lois along with some other older members were so taken by watching our little Laura toddling around, being a typical cute 2 year old. Your parents talked about it with us for many years to come. Gary served with Paul on different church committees, and we remember their dinner invitation with them, when they first moved down to Willow Valley. Such a lovely couple and many fond memories of them to always cherish in our hearts.
We offer our sincere sympathies to all your family. You were so blessed to have such wonderful parents with a deep loving faith in God. We will truly miss “our Lois'” as we have been missing Paul. We hold you all up in prayer with strength and healing as you move on without your Mother. We will always hold Lois and Paul in our hearts.
Blessings and love, ❤️
Gary and Suzie Johnson

The Linfield family,
We are so sorry for the loss of your mother Lois. Certainly we also remember your father Paul.
When we first joined FUMC (48 years ago) they were so friendly and welcoming.
We wish we could attend the life celebration but are in Florida at this time.
Blessings to all of you,
Harry and Carol Yost

I attended the service for Lois last night but did not get a chance to talk with any or you. When we moved to Miller Rd. in 1976 it wasn’t long before Lois showed us her hospitality. With no leaves on the trees we could see the “farm” from our back yard. Over the years Lois and Paul have been very good friends both as church members and “neighbors”. I have had much more association with Lois through UMW and all of us will miss her. Until lately we could always count on Lois for help with food, quilting, hostess and many more. Always willing to do whatever.

Condolence from Ann myers on March 31st, 2017 5:10 am

Dear Linfield family
I go to the same church as lois. We don’t attend the same service. She traditional , my family contemporary. But our paths would cross coming and going. She always said high and how are you. Liked talking with her. I have two boys. My youngest matthew is 17 and has high functioning autism. he is not like most kids with autism, he enjoys talking to people. He is my social butterfly. he loves to sing in the church choir and they often sing during first service. He also loves coming to church with his brother when he has early Sunday band prat ice for the service we attend. So after the first service he like talking to people. My husband and their father passed away in December so when Matt heard his good friend lois passed, he told me how mad he was that dad and lois died. He told me how kind she was and how they would talk about anything. And how he was going to miss her just like his dad. She made a huge impact on his life .just by being herself. Kind , sweet and caring. We will miss her dearly. Just wanted to share that with you.
