  • Aunt Lois was my favorite aunt on the Scott side. Even though we did not see her that much because of distance I always looked forward to her visits. She was such a sweet and gentle person, but she was also a very strong person who had been through a lot. I really admired her ability to meet life with such grace and make the best of it.

    I visited Aunt Lois in Richland about 10 years ago. Aunt Lois and I had a good visit and I was shown all parts of the town with great pride from the museum Wow I had no idea to the new Applebee’s. It was the first time I had ever spent alone with her and it was delightful. I also admired her faith. It was so strong.

    She will be missed.
