I wish there was some way to ease the loss of such a wonderful Mom you all had. Embrace the memories, and know she is smiling down upon you all. Still remember the slumber parties at your house, Debbie…she was so tolerant of all of us giggling girls and had the best breakfasts for us the next morning! Hugs, Gigi

Mrs. ZacAunt Lo to me was one of the dearest ladies I have yet to meet. She was a second mother to me during those high school years in every way. Always smiling, sometimes ornery and never without an open heart and outstretched hand. Seeing her once in a very long while as an adult never changed things-still the same and full of joy as though we still saw each other regularly. The Lord has a new Angel and we are left with fond memories. Much Love to Deb, Steven, Mark, David and family.

My thoughts are prayers are with you Debbie, Steven, Mark and David. Your mom was another in a long line of special ladies I was fortunate to know growing up in that oh so special place of Green Acres. Such a shame everyone has a grown and went their seperate ways. We all grew up in a special place in a special time and your mom was one of the reasons it was so special. I last saw her on July 10, 2010 when she came to pay her respects to my mom and she hadn’t missed a beat. Hold the memories close to your heart and cherish all the good times. Debbie please say hello to Steve for me so sorry our lives haven’t crossed paths in so long

To all who knew her, Lois was a true friend. She was always smiling and upbeat and took life with all its ups and downs in good spirit.

Ed and I will miss her, as we have missed Tony as true friends are rare and should be treasured always.

We send our love and sincere sympathy to her family, friends and all who had the good fortune to know her.

Sincerely, Clair and Ed
