Dan,Greg and Ronnie. So sorry to hear of your Moms passing. She was a lovely woman who always had kind words to say. Remember….when you feel she’s with you, know that she really is. Hugs to all of you.
So saddened by this news. Lois was such a lovely person. She will be missed. Sincere condolences to her family members. May she Rest In Peace.
So sorry for your loss Ronnie, Dan, Greg & family. I fondly remember visiting my “Hamilton cousins” over the years at the trailer and at the house. Your mom was so inviting and accommodating. I was always fascinated with all the Avon in the basement (especially the race car cologne). She was a special lady who has been put through a lot. I’m glad she has had the support she has had in you, Dan, & Greg. I know you two made the last years manageable for her. Take Care. Robb, Heidi & family

Lois’s life was a testament to the finest of human qualities: courage , kindness, generosity and love. Her legacy is her family and the memories that she leaves for all who had the privilege of knowing her……indeed a life well lived and an example to all of us..

Our thoughts are with you, may she rest in peace. Love Norma, Stan, Joe and Wendy XO
So sad to hear of Lois’s passing. My mom Catherine and I lived around the corner and Lois always was so wonderful to me as a child. I remember I used to go and “shop” in her basement for a gift for my mom, and I always enjoyed the times I would visit with my mom. Lois was one of the strongest women I ever knew, and her outlook on life was a true inspiration. My heart goes out to her family.
I am so sorry for your loss. Lois was a fabulous lady and will be sadly missed. Thanks to Avon, I met Lois. Hugs to all of you.
