We are very saddened with the loss of a dear friend. Lois was a friend that we befriended many years ago at Grace United Methodist Church. She belonged to bridge groups that my wife shared with her. Always a compassionate person, Lois shared her many abilities. We were so sorry that we were unable to attend the services. Richard and Barbara Lewis

We knew Lois when we attended the same church in Emporia. Later in Olathe we have renewed our friendship with Lois and family. In last several years Lois played bridge with the bridge group which we served as leaders. We wish to send our symphaty and prayers to the family. May God be with you during this sad time.
