Resident Of The Month

Lois was born on July 27th, 1934 in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. She lived there until the age of 12 when her family moved to Troy, New York. Now we know where Lois got her accent.  While living in New York, Lois attended nursing school, and after she graduated she worked as an LPN at St. Mary’s hospital. During this time, she met her husband John through her sister Becky who had been dating him.  Becky enjoyed dancing and John was not that keen on dancing so Becky told Lois she could have a go at him.  Lois can sure shake things up around here when we have music. 

In 2007 she and John moved the family to Iowa to be closer to Lois’s family.  In her youth, Lois enjoyed swimming, tennis, and biking.  She was also a member of the Sweet Adelines, for a number of years.  She and John have 3 children.  Her daughters Kim and Heather of Britt and a son Terry who lives in Missouri.  Lois is a grandma to 7 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren, and 2 more on the way.  Lois also has 4 sisters and a brother who died in infancy. Lois's husband died in 2014. They had been married 57 years.  Lois has lived at the Summit House for 7 years and enjoys watching game shows, religious programs, flowers, music, and all kinds of board games and card games.  She also has a soft spot for animals but mostly the furry kind.  Congratulations Lois on being Tenant of the Month!
