To Ray and family, Jean and I will always remember the fun times down at the river with Lois and you. Lois was such a joy to be around. As a fellow faculty member at Northeast I know first hand what a wonderful teacher Lois was and the positive influence she had on her students. Lois was not only a credit to Northeast, and her profession as a teacher, but to herself as well. Respectfully, Jean and Jack Tompkins
