Lois​ ​was​ ​a​ ​loving​ ​mother,​ ​grandmother,​ ​great-grandmother,​ ​aunt​ ​and​ ​friend. She​ ​loved​ ​each​ ​person​ ​as​ ​if​ ​they​ ​were​ ​her​ ​own​ ​special​ ​child.​ ​She​ ​was​ ​kind, compassionate,​ ​giving,​ ​and​ ​always​ ​put​ ​others​ ​needs​ ​ahead​ ​of​ ​her​ ​own.​ ​She was​ ​the​ ​foundation​ ​of​ ​the​ ​family​ ​and​ ​a​ ​“mom”​ ​to​ ​her​ ​children,​ ​in-laws, nieces,​ ​nephews,​ ​grandchildren,​ ​and​ ​neighbors.​ ​Over​ ​the​ ​years,​ ​she​ ​was involved​ ​in​ ​boy​ ​scouts,​ ​was​ ​a​ ​member​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Town​ ​of​ ​Binghamton​ ​Fire Auxiliary,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​longtime​ ​member​ ​of​ ​Tabernacle​ ​United​ ​Methodist​ ​church.

Lois​ ​enjoyed​ ​the​ ​company​ ​of​ ​her​ ​cats,​ ​doing​ ​jigsaw​ ​puzzles,​ ​sudoku,​ ​and playing​ ​solitaire​ ​on​ ​the​ ​computer.​ ​She​ ​learned​ ​to​ ​facebook​ ​and​ ​skype​ ​in​ ​her 80s​ ​and​ ​loved​ ​keeping​ ​in​ ​touch​ ​with​ ​her​ ​extended​ ​family​ ​that​ ​way. 

She​ ​will​ ​be​ ​missed​ ​by​ ​many,​ ​but​ ​we​ ​will​ ​each​ ​carry​ ​the​ ​love​ ​she​ ​freely​ ​gave in​ ​our​ ​hearts. The​ ​family​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​thank​ ​all​ ​those​ ​at​ ​Fairview​ ​Nursing​ ​Home, Binghamton,​ ​for​ ​the​ ​care,​ ​kindness​ ​and​ ​love​ ​you​ ​gave​ ​her.​ ​She​ ​was​ ​blessed to​ ​be​ ​in​ ​your​ ​care.
