She was a Brownie and Girl Scout Leader, taught her daughters homemaking skills, and chauffeured them to music lessons for many years. Lois went to work for the Mental Health Department of Alabama as a secretary until 1989. Upon retirement, she was a volunteer at Baptist South Hospital, Montgomery. She also taught Sunday School, played hand bells, and sang in the choir at Ridgecrest Baptist Church for 40 years. Her love of classical music and hymns showed when she loved to listen to her daughters sing and play their string instruments.
