Lois Ruth Jones (nee Herr) passed away peacefully on Tuesday, October 6, 2015.

She is the loving mother of Larry (Joanne), Lloyd (Beth), Lowell (Kim) and Lane; grandma to Todd, Trevor, Erin, Justin, Jamie, Andrea, Ben, Rachel, Jake and Angie; and great-grandma to 13.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Lew.

Lois was the very first administrative assistant for Kettle Moraine schools, where she worked for 25 years. She earned well over 5,000 volunteer hours knitting newborn baby hats for Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital. Her flower gardens at her Dousman farm were her pride and joy. She loved gardening and was an avid reader.

A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, October 10, at 11 AM, at Emmanuel United Church of Christ in Dousman.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to the church would be appreciated.
