They lived in Dallas for over 30 years before moving to Wills Point in 1990 and they celebrated 66 years of marriage.
Anna Lois was loved by many and loved her “Big Family”. Her quick wit and humor could brighten anyone’s day which she did often. Her talent for electronics, cooking, arts & crafts, painting, drawing and crocheting was amazing and there was nothing she could not do or figure out.

Always there to help her family or strangers and will always and forever be remembered for her great sense of fashion, laughter, humor, smile, heart and most of all for the love and pride she felt for her family.
