Wenatchee World - Sep 28, 2005
Lois A. Badger passed away peacefully at her home in Wenatchee WA, on September 13, 2005, surrounded by her family. Lois was born May 25, 1919, to Harry and Daisy (Lyon) Morgan in Moscow, Idaho. She moved to Winthrop, WA at the age of three and graduated from Winthrop High School in 1937. She attended the University of Washington and returned to Winthrop where she worked for a short time at the Winthrop Hotel until accepting a position at the Farmers State Bank in 1940.
With the exception of a brief stint in banking in Portland, OR, she remained at Farmers State Bank for sixty years, retiring in 2000, at the age of eighty. On November 14, 1942, Lois married Warren F. Badger, also of Winthrop. Together, they raised three daughters in a home she kept for her family while working full time. Lois was an avid sports person and loved the outdoors, particularly golfing, fishing, and gardening. She also enjoyed traveling and reading, and she was a member of the Winthrop United Methodist Church. In 2002, she moved to Wenatchee to be near her family, where her creativity emerged through the writing of short stories.
Lois was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of forty-eight years; a brother, Charles Morgan; and a sister, Leta Pettit. She is survived by a sister, Helen Larson of Silverdale; a brother, William Morgan of Winthrop; her three daughters, Dianne Cornell (Perrin) East Wenatchee; Marilyn Fischer (Richard) East Wenatchee; Bonnie Perkins (Gary) Cheney; and five grandchildren, Darren and Barry Fischer, Sara Cornell, and Mathew and Christopher Perkins. She will be deeply missed by a family who loves her dearly.
Services will be held Saturday, September 24, 2005, 2:00 p.m. at the Methow Valley United Methodist Church. Services will conclude at the church followed by a dinner for family and friends. Memorials may be made to the American Lung Association, the Heart Association, or the charity of your choice. Arrangements are by Telford's Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
