    I had met Geoff at the Dandenong October Fest of all places(so classy!) I was separated and had my son Leigh just 10 months old. Lois invited us to their family Christmas at their home, we had just been dating a few months but we were both falling for each other in a big way! My mum had died when I was 16 and Leigh had no grandparents in Australia. Lois and Fred along with Wendy & Phil
    made us so welcome and they even had gifts wrapped for Leigh. Lois was so warm and welcoming I will never forget that day being with such a beautiful, caring family. Geoff and I just celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary and Lois has been a huge part of my life for 42 years. We always lived close to Lois and Fred and would see them most days. Lois was like a mother to me not a mother-in-law and we had lots of laughs, and lots of holidays together – Merimbula and Pambula, England and Europe, Caloundra and of course Robin Caravan Park at Safety Beach. One holiday at Kings Beach Caloundra Lois was in the surf having fun when she lost her dentures. We looked for them for hours and put notices up in the Surf Lifesaving Club for missing dentures but they were gone. RIP Mum -so loved by so many children and grandchildren who all thought they had the best Nana in the world. Julie Conboy

    Auntie Lois had the wonderful capacity to make others feel welcome and cared for, no matter who they were. She was always interested in what you had been doing and loved a chat. Auntie Lois had a great sense of fun and joy for life. Her baking (l still think of her advice every time l make Anzacs), her enthusiastic performance of the ‘chicken dance’ and more than anything her warmth and love of family will always remain special memories.

    When Lois married Fred, my brother, she brought a sense of fun and lightness to our family. She had a subtle sense of humour and deep compassion for others, the natural ability to put people at ease and find goodness in everyone.
    We were fortunate to spend a number of holidays with Fred and Lois. A trip to America comes to mind. Roles were assigned and Lois became an excellent Social Secretary being the life of the party.

    Lois, the most vibrant, warm, caring and funny woman. I loved our trip to Mooloolaba with Angela, Fred, Geoff and Julie – we had a great time together in the sun & you always made me feel like another family member every time I was with you at functions and gatherings and when Angela and I celebrated our big birthday milestones. You will be greatly missed, your impact and the time you spent with others will always be treasured as warm memories forevermore.

    Aunty Lo, you will be so missed. You were a huge influence on my life. You are the kindest, most loving Aunty anyone could have. So many memories flooding through. From family dinners, crawling through the breakfast openings at Halls Gap, picnics in the back yard, Christmas lunches, birthdays. You always had the beat hugs and and kind words. Boy could you laugh, we all often got the giggles so bad in the end we didn’t know what we were laughing at. I love you and know your in gods arms now. Rest my darling angel, until we meet again xxxxx

    So many fond memories of Aunty Lois and her impressive biscuit barrel!! What a wonderful woman who brought joy, laughs and plenty of love to every member of her family and to anyone who she met. She would think nothing to throw her arms around you (or a stranger) and envelope you into a loving embrace. Rest well xxx

    Spelling and the Tables heard, reading and stories read, kinda with Mrs Woollie, bus to school on and off ,pickled onions, ginger beer, sausage rolls chutney and chocolate pudding with chocolate sauce.
    Cuddles on Sunday morning in the big double bed, rolled up in blankets, taught me how to swim cheered at every carnival lost at Myers top floor toy show hugs and tears, holidays at the beach with nana and grand pop crayfish legs and cream buns. Giggles uncontrolled in most serious situations, always pleased to see me , open all hours.
