I only have amazing sweet memories from my grandma. She was so smart, kind and thoughtful. I feel very blessed to know I come from her. She had a great life.

I will remember Lois as a very warm and caring person who was genuinely interested in everything and everyone she came in contact with. She loved life and learning, and always working on some new project. Whether it was reading every book within reach, faceting here stones, canning fruits and vegetables, sailing her boats, photography, studying wildflowers, or traveling around the country with my dad, she did it with enthusiasm and boundless energy. On the last point (my dad) she showed an immense capacity for patience and understanding, and love. As for me being her stepson, I felt total acceptance and love from day one, no questions asked. I know how much she loved the mountains and especially Courtright and the cabin. I have fond memories of hiking with her and my dad to Nelson Lake, Helms Meadow, Dogtooth, and the other domes around Courtright. The fishing was fun, but just being out in nature and sitting in the boat working on crossword puzzles with Suzie on the floorboards, and dad talking away at the back of the boat was contentment for her too. Her warm, sincere, and inquisitive spirit has had a very positive impact on the world. I thank her for that, and will truly miss her, and will always remember her. God bless her. Mark Schumann
