Lois lived her life to the fullest. She loved being in the company of children, surrounding herself with children for twenty years at the Watson Lake Daycare and opened her home to foster children over the years. Many children called her Lois or grandma Lois. She was happy to have all the extra little ones calling her grandma. Lois loved to get out and go camping, and cooking large quantities of food, you’d never starve if you were handy their campsite, their trailer was always over flowing with plenty of variety of food and goodies. Vacationing with family and being surrounded with her family was something she enjoyed very much, they were a big part of her life.
The Crossman and Giesbrecht families would like to extend our gratitude to the Watson Lake Hospital, the nurses and doctors who cared for Lois and made her comfortable in her last days. Thank you from all of us.
At Lois’s request there will not be a service at this time. A gathering will be in Watson Lake, date to be determined with family and friends.
Lois will be missed by many saddened hearts.
Forever in our hearts, never forgotten, Rest in Peace Mom (aka: Grama).
