    I knew Lois from working with her at Noland Company many years ago. She looked exactly as the picture that is shown of her. She was always friendly, helpful, and had a wonderful personality. Although many years have passed since I worked with her at Noland, I remember her as if it was yesterday that we worked together. My sincere, heartfelt condolences to the family during this time.
