Birth: Dec. 30, 1914
Death: Aug. 8, 2011

Lifetime Bellingham resident Lois A. Banks passed peacefully from this life Aug 8, 2011, at the age of 97.

She is survived by her four children: Sheldon Banks (Jo-Anne), of Ferndale WA, Benjamin Banks (Julie/Donna), of Bellingham, Bonnie Banks (Donald/Dan), of Bellingham, and Loren Banks (Suzy), of Cordova, AK; 16 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.

Lois was born to Martin and Adela Dagne Olson, both immigrants from Norway. She married Bellingham photography shop owner, Clyde Banks, in 1941.

Lois was a well-known cellist and violinist. Her quartet was regularly featured at the Bellingham Museum, as well as throughout Whatcom and Skagit County.

Lois was selfless in her devotion to her family and music. She was surrounded in life by children and grandchildren who absolutely adored her. She'll be remembered for her light-hearted, kind approach to everyone she encountered. Lois Banks lived a wonderful life, blessed with good health, adored by family and consumed with a passion to serve others.

We would like to thank her caregiver, Laura Banks, and A Loving Heart adult family home and Whatcom Hospice.
