Lois attended Ripley Public School where she was Valedictorian of her graduating class. She married Wayne Norris Taylor August 30, 1951, at Eden Chapel and left for Granada, Colorado, just days after the wedding where they began their life together. They returned to the family farm in rural Payne County after a couple of years in Colorado. Lois was an equal partner and worked side by side with Wayne in their dairy and later their beef cattle farm. They had four children, Robert, Cindy, Dana and Jane. Lois and Wayne were married 72 years. Lois spent her life in service to others; as a mother, grandmother, great grandmother and caregiver to many elderly family members and neighbors in her community. Her most treasured role was that of grandmother and great grandmother. She was an active member of Eden Chapel United Methodist Church her entire adult life. Lois worked faithfully in and was passionate about the church’s Love Bears ministry helping to make over 14,000 bears to be given to children who were in crisis or simply needed some hope. She worked weekly in the Love Bears ministry up to her death. Lois was one of the founders of Taylorsville Country Fair held during the 1990s. Lois is survived by her husband Wayne of the home, their children and spouses Robert H. and Katherine Taylor of Perkins, Oklahoma, Cindy L.
