Unyielding tenacity wrapped in a soft clean quilt. Overflowing compassion without being smothering or sappy. Patient determination. Git 'er done, but do it right the first time. This wonderful woman will be sorely missed.

Dear Gene & all of your family,
I will remember all the many kindnesses and the friendship that both Lois and you shared with our McClure family. Lois' lively spirit touched our class of '67 and enriched many memories of life in the Morning Sun community. This world is better because of her. We're thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers.
Peace, Jerry and Margaret (McClure) Mills
