It is with a certain sense of loss from my own perspective that I write this.
While I have never been close to cousin Lois, I have always held in great regard her unselfish ability to brighten a room with her ever-smiling presence and positive attitude.
On more than one occasion in recent family gatherings at Aunt Dorothy's place in Bluegrass, Lois has, and in her own gentle and subtle way, reinforced my appreciation for the continuing bond of "family".
Especially to Al, to Bill, and to all of us family members who now suffer the pain of this loss, I offer my sincere condolence.

I was so sorry to hear of Lois's passing. What a delightful lady and so honored that we were related. When my parents (Rich & Naomi Boynton) celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2004, she helped us so much with pics, newspaper clippings, etc., of my dad! Her vivacious personality was something I remembered from the time I was just a little gal!! We will be praying for all of the family!!! And wish we could be there with you!

I am sorry for the passing of Lois. I know she was a super secretary and my father respected her very much. I remember meeting in the Tetons while camping. Fond memories. I know she will be missed by all. With sympathy, Debra Bergstrand Evans

It is so hard for me to say “farewell” to my dear Aunt Lois. She was a beautiful person inside and out. I recall a letter I received from Aunt Lois after the loss of my fiancé many years ago. In it, she told me something I take solace in even today. She wrote, “Take comfort that he passed knowing you loved him with all your heart.” Uncle Al, Cary and Brian, I hope you can draw strength from this tender sentiment passed on to me by my wonderfully sweet Aunt Lois. You are all in my prayers.
