She met and fell in love with Kenneth Earl Reynolds. The two wed on August 22nd, 1952 in a double wedding with her sister Doris and Kenneth's brother Bill. To this blessed union they added two beautiful daughters, Glenda Earlene and Sharon Rae. Lois was an amazing mother, doting on her daughters every chance she got. Throwing birthday parties, making them clothes, styling their hair and allowing sleepovers with endless homemade, from-scratch treats were just a few of the loving benefits her girls enjoyed. Lois has made their family home in many places across the world thanks to Kenneth's work in the armed forces, each time they settled somewhere new she diligently made it home. Some of the places they lived include Alaska, the island of Guam, and South Dakota.
Lois was an excellent homemaker, always making delicious meals from scratch. She truly enjoyed being a homemaker, wife and mother most. Some of her hobbies include crafting, designing floral arrangements, sewing, and making cabbage patch dolls. She was an avid bowler, she was in many leagues and won awards often. Lois was known for her banana pudding, so much so, that it was no longer called banana pudding and was instead dubbed Nana Pudding. Lois held a deep belief that her God given assignment on earth was to help others. This drove her to cook meals for countless funerals, sick friends and acquaintances. She served selflessly at the Mangum Church of God where she was a member for many years. So many people affectionately called her Mama and Nana who were not kin but they were loved just the same. Her servant's heart will be remembered fondly by many.
