Death: Oct. 24, 1993

Born to a poor dirt farmer, Lois grew up in a large family. Fourteen in all of which only 12 made it to adulthood. Her parents came from Tennessee to Washington in 1904 with one child, a son. They farmed in Whitman County for several years and then moved to Yakima Valley where there was irragation available. Lois was born there. At the age of 16 years, Lois' mother died leaving a father to raise the last 4 or 5 children left at home. Lois met her future husband, Robert Celius/DeBock, in 1940. And they married on January 3, 1942 in Seattle, WA. They raised a family of 6 chldren in the Lower Valley. Robert died in 1976 of Cancer leaving her to learn to live by herself. She got to see many of her grandchildren grow up. Then in May of 1993, the doctors discovered Cancer in her too. She died the following October after much chemo. We miss her strength and sense of humor. Our afternoon teas and her belief in Jesus Christ.
