Lois loved to read, plant flowers, and travel. She was a hard worker and a dedicated employee. This started in high school at a local dime store and continued to do so until her retirement at age 87. Working places such as Hawthorn Melody Ice Cream, Cain’s Potato Chips and back to her real passion of retail when she started working as a cashier at the Bowling Green Walmart before transferring to the Soddy Daisy Walmart.
