We feel like we knew "Aunt Lois," though we never had the opportunity to meet her, because we have heard so many wonderful stories from Kori, Mark, Tim & Sara. Kindness, patience, and unbelievable generosity are at the heart of every tale. We are so sorry for your loss. With deepest Sympathy,Justin, Bergit, Eva & Even Sobak

Aunt Lois was a special part of our family. Celebrating every birthday, Christmas and more with her was a tradition- Picking her and Uncle Floyd up at the airport after their regular vacations and hearing about such exciting adventures. They both loved to laugh! Their spirit gave me the inspiration to travel and I think I actually out-travelled them always remembering he fun they found in any trip, be it a toothpick convention with my Mom, Doris, or a cruise where Floyd needed to were a tuxedo. I still have many small treasures they brought me from their trips and I have a wonderful china hutch Lois gave me as a way to remember her and Floyd. I see it every day. She knew I would treasure that as well. She was an incredibly thoughtful person. Lois was always "on the road" over the Christmas holidays. No matter the weather, she was determined to keep up the traditions she shared with Floyd for so many years. I'm not surprised at all she travelled on to a new place this Christmas Eve. It shows her spirit was there until her last minute with us. I hope they have AAA in heaven. If not, she'll have to open her own branch.From, my mother Doris, brother John and my son Zach we send condolences to those who feel the loss and we send joy in celebrating a life well-lived.Catherine Conzet, niece
