Lois grew up in Minnesota with her mother, Anna and younger sister Geraldine. She moved to Portland to attend secretarial school, then later moved to Shelton where she met Leon. One thing led to another and they were married. Lois and Fuzzy had three children: Cheryl, Holly and Peter. Of course, they were perfect! - No, wait, it was just the Grandchildren that were perfect. As the kids grew up, Lois worked. First for State Government, then later for Mason County, where she worked in the Assessor's Office. She eventually ran for and was elected Mason County Assessor. A horrible, stressful and unpopular job!!!! Once she retired, she and Fuzzy traveled to Alaska, Arizona, Mexico, Hawaii, and many other places. They made lots of friends along the way. Mom still has many, many friends (and relatives who also qualify). She liked to eat Mexican food and have an occasional Margarita. She loved crafts, sewing and art projects. She worked on hand stitched items even though she was plagued by arthritis, she just worked through the pain. Lois helped anyone who needed it. She went out of her way to make people welcome. She gave to several causes and volunteered for community events (Oysterfest, County Fair. Orthopedic Guild, and others). She enjoyed her two major food groups more than any others: chocolate and CocaCola. Lois was kind, thoughtful, generous and always thought the best about people. Lois is survived by her sister, Gerry Himlie (Vince), her children Cheryl Kimbel (George), Holly Clary (Jerry), Peter Scott (Maria), and Judy Kenyon (Roger)... In addition, grandchildren Levi Dean (Laura), Casey Dean (Katie), Amber Deluga (Eric), and Autumn Barbero (Brian); great-grandchildren Kendal, Gage, Hadly, Grayson, Madison, Marissa, Abigail, Amelia, and Joella.
