Lois Williams

Lois M. Williams, age 90, a resident of Ft. Scott, Kansas, went to be with her Lord on January 14, 2021 at her home in Ft. Scott. Lois Maxine Anderson was born on August 28, 1930 and grew up on a dairy farm near White City, KS. Her three brothers did all the chores, except her job was to gather the eggs.

She met Bob Williams while she was attending Manhattan Christian College, and he was attending K-State. She became his bride on August 20, 1950, and they were married for 70 years. They have four children: Lynnette LaForge (Frank), Caney, KS, Cynthia Dickason (Nolan), rural Crescent, OK, Karen Marshall (Steve), Fairfax, IA, and Brian Williams (Terri), Fort Scott, KS. They have 18 grandchildren, and 29 great grandchildren with two more due soon. She enjoyed spending time with them and baking chocolate chip cookies for everyone.

She loved to sing solos in church, play the organ, and direct the children’s choir. She was a Christian all of her life, and raised her children in the church. She taught piano lessons to several children, including her own, and violin lessons to two of her daughters. She spent many hours sewing clothes for her kids. In later years, she enjoyed reading and playing games in books.

There was cremation. A memorial service with burial in the Clarksburg Cemetery will be held at a later date.
