Born on March 3, 1927 in Portsmouth, Ohio she joined the War effort at the age of 17 as a secretary in the War Department in Washington D.C. She started nursing school after returning to Portsmouth and met her husband Don when he was her patient. Her adventurous life continued with a move to Alaska before returning to Ohio for Don to complete his optometric degree at Ohio State University. A move to New Mexico preceded relocation to Tampa in 1963 from Columbus, OH and then on to St. Petersburg in 1964. After raising their 3 daughters she returned to school and completed her RN degree at St Petersburg Junior College. Lois worked at St. Anthony’s Hospital and became a supervisor in their home health agency prior to retiring.
