Your Lois was a consistently caring and thoughtful person. She made everyone feel like family. I cherish memories of twice yearly visits that she would organize whenever I visited my Mom.

I remember Lois just as she was described in her obituary. She lovingly put others ahead of herself! Her Daughter Michelle and I were friends since 1991, meeting in Australia. Though we were on opposite ends of Canada, when I visited, Lois really strived to get to know me and made me feel like family. RIP!

Although I did not know Lois personally, I heard her voice often as she spoke to her daughter Michelle over the phone, giving loving advice and hoping Michelle would enjoy her day despite having to work so hard for our family over these several years! Michelle was "raised right" as a kind and diligent soul. Lois will be profoundly missed. Our warmest thoughts go out to all of you as you hold Lois in your hearts. Sincerely, Ingrid and Dr. Bryan Young of Owen Sound
