To read her obituary does not allow the casual observer to come to an understanding of the kind of person Aunt Lois was. Older sister to my mom, she was that special aunt in our lives, my sisters and me, a second mother, an inspiration, and now the last silver thread connecting us to our maternal ancestry. Having never given birth herself, she was mother, and so much more to many other people. She lived a life of pious humility, truly reflecting and emulating the love of Christ she followed all of her days, giving of herself her whole life. There are many fond family memories of summers spent in her home, loving the dogs that were always around, hearing the parakeet they found out in the front yard wolf whistle when she walked into the kitchen (having learned that from my Uncle), enjoying peach cobbler (lots and lots of peach cobbler) during those years when there was a peach tree in the back yard (not while living in Hobbs). She was much loved by many, and will be missed dearly.
