(Aunt) Lois was the daughter of Greenleaf Whittier Donnally and Hazel Ellen Clinghan Donnally. She had one brother, Harold Donnally, who predeceased her in 1968 and four sisters, Margaret (Lusher, Elizabeth (Harvill), Edith (Aldridge) and Patricia (Pace). Lois married Woodrow Murphy Britt, and together they had four sons: Delward, Randall, David and Charles. She moved from Cunard, West Virginia to Charleston, South Carolina with her family, and remained there until just a few years prior to her death, when she moved to Maryland to live with her son, Randy and his wife Cheryl. Aunt Lois dearly loved her five grandchildren: Lyndsay, Shannon, Kelsey, Chad and Taylor. Since her passing, her great granddaughter, Autumn Love was born.

I remember the first time I met Aunt Lois... she was over visiting her sister Elizabeth (my mother-in-law) and they were practicing singing "church songs" in preparation for the next days' service. The "Donnally sisters" all had beautiful voices and together, they could stir your soul when they got to singing their Gospel. The whole while we visited, two little dogs sat perched on Aunt Lois' lap. I found out later that those two went everywhere (except Church) with her! She was an extreme animal lover, and was very passionate about a few things in life: her Lord and Savior was first and foremost in her life, then her "Grands", her sons, her sisters and her animals. Aunt Lois was a very outspoken woman, and you never had to wonder where you stood with her - she'd let you know. She was brutally honest, too. I loved that about her. I didn't know her when her oldest son Delward was killed in a car accident, but the family recalls that Aunt Lois nearly died herself from a broken heart. (See FAG Memorial 28064354) She also had a very hard time, as did the rest of the Donnally family, dealing with the immense tradgedy of losing her baby sister Patty, her husband Eugene (Pace) and their two babies, Patty and Laura in a horrible car accident that Lois herself witnessed. (See FAG Memorial 28130125) Towards the end of her days, Aunt Lois was in extreme pain as arthritis ravaged her tiny body, but I never once heard her complain, even when she was hunched over and walking with a cane. I know Aunt Lois is gloriously living her days now, as she had anxiously anticipated... with her beloved Redeemer in Heaven.
