  • My heartfelt condolences go out to the Dougherty, Peretti, and Leahy family.
    I was lucky enough to spend time with Aunt Lois over these past years. We often told stories about “the three blisters” and her memories of Spruce Head as well as we always spent time catching up on all the family news.
    I will miss those visits and conversations along with her laugh and smile.
    Rest In Peace Aunt Lois.

  • Such a kind lady. Glad I got to know her. RIP

  • I remember the times at JOY and the rides home from church. Rest in peace.

  • I was sorry to miss the lovely service this morning for Lois – she was a dear friend and like myself a long-time member of First Presby. She will be missed also by her dear life long friend Jean Maver. She will be missed. I gave her a little cat pin when “Fluffy” died — she called me to thank me. I have missed being in church for two months with illness but I’m thankful that I talked with her a few weeks ago. Praying for all family members — sad with the Christmas holiday coming up but so thankful for the love she gave to me over years. I know she loved all her family members and friends. Sent with LOVE!
