So sorry to hear about Auntie Lois. She was a wonderful lady. She will be missed. Big hugs to all the family..funerals bring families together to grieve and to laugh of the good times and funny stories. Our family certainly is not short of those <smile>. Love Angela.
Our deepest condolences to the family.
Dear Alsgard Family--so sorry to hear of Lois' passing. She was such a fine person. I still have the gifts she gave me when she was my secret sister--such a thoughtful gal. My heart goes out to all of you. Dianne Yarmoloy
Sending my deepest condolences to the whole family. Auntie Lois was made of “the good stuff” and your Mom was a gift to this world. May all of your beautiful memories help in your healing. She will be missed. Sending you my love. Dawne ❤️
Will always remember Lois’s sense of humour which we decided she would have had to have to be raisin all those kids!! Thursday (bingo) will always be “date night with Alan” for me. Rest In Peace lovely lady, will miss you
My condolences go out to the family for the loss of a wonderful person. She was loved and will be missed dearly. R.I.P Lois. Love Susan
Alan and family: we remember Lois with fond memories. Our sympathies.
Your mom was a good neighbour and I used to marvel at how she could go places with “all” you kids, like out to Clear Lake. I would be there having trouble managing two or three, whatever I had at the time. She worked so hard inside and out and brought you kids up to be good hardworking people like herself. Rest In Peace. Lois until we are neighbours again
So sorry to hear of your loss. She was a wonderful women and Mother and she will be missed greatly by all. Thoughts and prayers for the family at this time of loss. Buddy Bert
Allan and Family, Sorry for your loss
