They lived in Prince Rupert, Prince George, Terrace and finally settled in Chilliwack in 1971. While Lois raised her children, she was also active in the school’s PTA, local bowling and curling clubs and, of course, bingo. Lois was also known for her amazing culinary skills. She will be dearly missed by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. One of the last things she said before she passed was to mention Dr. Ken Hirst who had been her doctor for over 35 years.
