Lois attended the historic R. R. Morton, Howard and Virginia State Universities. She was employed with Amelia County Public Schools.
She moved to Richmond, Virginia in 2009 to be close to her children. She favored visitations, conversations, and festivities centered around family and food. The finishing touches of any good meal was cake, pie, cookies or rice pudding, and of course, ice cream!
Lois could often be heard singing the words to the hymn “Precious Lord”. Her heart stopped beating at 6:30 am June 18, 2021.
