LOIS MARGARET MARTHA (EDIE)
October 15, 1929 - April 7, 2021
Lois attended high school in Dugald and completed Grade 12 at United College in Winnipeg. The following year she attended Normal School in Winnipeg and graduated with her teacher's certificate in 1948. Lois taught at a few schools in Manitoba over the next eight years ending with teaching three years in Roland. There she met Lyall Allison. Lyall and Lois were married July 20, 1957.
Lois became a full time farm wife and mother to five girls: Linda (Doug Wilton), Beth (Blaine White, deceased), Karen (Murray Hiebert), Gwen (James MacEwan), and Mavis (Bill Green).
Lois loved teaching and learning. She loved children and was patient and kind. She was a 4-H leader, a Sunday School teacher, an Auntie, a grandmother and a mother. She was an avid reader and a lifelong learner.
Lois was very proud of her five daughters, 20 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
She loved people. Getting together with friends to play games was a joy to her. Lyall and Lois met square dancing and continued to dance for the next 60 years.
Lois and Lyall moved to a "small house" attached to Doug and Linda Wilton's house in 2014. In January, 2021 Lyall and Lois moved to Buhler Center in Winkler.
Lois was a lovely person. She will be sadly missed by her husband Lyall, family, friends and the Roland community.
