    candle 1She was such a warm, loving person who always had a smile on her face. It was truly a pleasure every time I saw her. She will be missed!

    When I think of Aunt Lois I am reminded of her smile and how she lit up a room when she entered. She had the only white sofa I had ever seen and we knew to admire from a distance. All of our aunts and uncles held special roles in the family. One by one we’re losing their grace and presence in our lives but their memories live on forever. I am sorry for your loss. Please know you are all in my prayers.

    I tested positive for Covid and cannot go anywhere until 8-25. Now I missed Uncle Jim and Aunt Lois’s funerals. So sorry.

    When I was in grade school and had a penpal from Spain who did I go to to translate his letter? Well Aunt Lois of course and she then helped me write a letter back to him. She always had a smile for me and was so patient as I dictated a letter that she translated back to Spanish. I have no memory of what those letters said but I never forgot that she took the time with me to make me feel so “continental”. 😊
    Rest In Peace Aunt Lois.

    I remember Lois from when I joined the Daughters of the American Revolution and attended my first meetings. She was our Regent from 1980-1982. She was always sweet and friendly and I know she will be missed by the Saint Charles Chapter DAR and family and friends. My condolences to the family.

    Liebe Lois,
    Vor 22 Jahren durfte auch ich dich kennenlernen. Du bist einer der Menschen, welche man sofort um sich haben wollte. Fürsorglich und lustig.Ich bin dankbar, dass ich dich kennenlernen durfte. Ich hoffe, dass Alle die gerade den Schmerz von deinem Verlust durchleben, bald mit einem Lächeln an dich denken können. Ich habe dich mit einem Bild, auf welchem du lächelst in meinem Herzen eingeschlossen.

    I first met Lois when Steve and Steph started hanging around with Ed and Caroline at St. Dominic HS. Never crossing the Missouri border until Henry and me went on our honeymoon, I thought Lois was the most exotic person I ever met! Growing up in New York, knowing another language, being part of the DAR we were impressed! As we got to know Lois after Steph and Ed were married we found her to be down to earth and so interesting to talk to. Her smile was beautiful and we know all of you will miss seeing it.
    You have our sympathy and love.

    I am sorry to hear of Mrs. Griesenauer’s passing. I remember from years ago during my High School days. Her house was one of the houses we went to to “hang out”. She was always friendly to our group.

    What a great memorial pic of Lois. Sorry to hear of her passing, and praying your grieving is brief and converts to peaceful, happy memories quickly. Laura and Ed, it’s always tough to let go of loved ones in this life, but know that you will get to enjoy eternity with them one day. Blessings to all as you move forward.
