"Sammy", as she was lovingly called by her grand and great grandchildren, was married to Jack Bethel 24 Sep 1911 by Rev Chastine in Wolfe City, Tex. There they had two sons. Jack died during the 1918 influenza pandemic. Lois moved to Shawnee, Okla to be near her parents and where she alone raised her children, Glen and Gordon, having never remarried. She worked for Bell T&T, retiring early 1960s after years as supervisor. She was the oldest living charter member of her church, Trinity Baptist in Shawnee, and remained active until later in years at which time she moved to Alabama to be near her family.
