Lois was born on November 18th, 1945, the daughter of the late Darrel and Kathleen Milton.
Lois attended the Weldon Baptist Church and her faith was strong and unwavering. She taught Sunday School for many years. She had a love for children and devoted her life to caring for children in the community and made many life long friendships. She was like a grandmother to many. In Lois's spare time she enjoyed knitting, scapbooking and reading. Lois was very community minded and a proud supporter of all events and attended with enthusiasm. Anything that her children were involved with, she became part of whether it be Minor Hockey, Fundy Blades, Home & School, Pioneer Girls or Awana. Lois was also involved with the NB Antique Auto Club with her husband, Vaughn, The Hillsborough Library and Literacy Express. She was involved with the William Henry Steeves House Museum and was fundamental in organizing Hillsborough Homecoming Days and the Santa Claus Parade. She was also instrumental in getting the candy for Santa to hand out to all the kids. No matter what needed done she could always be counted on. When Lois entered a room her fun spirit was evident , her laugh was contagious and everyone knew fun was going to be had. She left a lasting impression on everyone she met. Lois was happiest when surrounded by her children, grandchildren, and great grandchild and she cherished all the family gatherings full of jokes and laughter. If asked about her family she would smile and was eager to share their accomplishments. She was so very proud of each one of them and she loved them very much. "Of all the special joys in life, the big ones and the small, a mother's love and tenderness is the greatest of them all." She is now walking with the Lord and sharing her love and tenderness with her precious granddaughter, Bailey Joy.
