Lois was a beautiful person inside and out. She was a scholar, a musician, a teacher at heart (no matter the subject), and organizer, and would offer her home for meetings, etc. when she felt the need arise. She was a great friend and would always tell you the truth. You knew that she was a Christian by her actions. When she first came to Appomattox, she had just built a dulcimer, herself, at a Scholar's retreat. She was ready to learn to play it and she found out from other people that I could play one. She immmediately got in touch with one or two others who played and urged us to commit to an evening a week playing together. That was the first Dulcimer Trio. Lois always gave me credit for starting it but it was actually all Lois. Later she decided that she wanted to play bass dulcimer and wanted my help finding one. I found one on Ebay and we had the best time buying it one Sunday afternoon. She was on her computer in Appomattox and I was on mine at my home and we were on the phone together deciding what to pay for it. That was the start of her career as a bass dulcimer player which was the foundation of subsequent groups that she formed and participated in. Lois, you are greatly missed. We will keep loving you in heaven. Karen Gibson

To the family, I met Lois when she was performing with the Appomattox Laptop Orchestra. She was a fun person, full of life, and definitely got the most out of retirement! You have my deepest sympathies, she will be missed. Dean Jarvis

Dear Kathy, I am sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. When I first began teaching at Potomac View, she was a friend and a help to me. On the playground we would find a minute to talk. Your mom always talked about you and Randy and what she had planned for you for the weekend-something fun. Her children were her everything. I’m glad to know that she was so busy with so many different activities after she left teaching.
