Lois Welton - April 01, 2013
Lois Mae (Schellenberg) Welton, formerly of Holyoke, died April 1, 2013, at the age of 89. A service celebrating her life was held April 6 in Newberg, Ore., where she had been residing.
Lois was born in 1923 and spent her early years in Phillips County and raised her family in Holyoke.
Lois made friends wherever she went. She loved chatting with neighbors and encouraging others. She loved flowers and gardening. Her love of nature moved her to earn her Master Gardener certification. She loved books and had an insatiable appetite for the written word.
She loved her family and, above all, she loved her God. She will be greatly missed by her five children, 10 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
Her ashes will be placed in the Schellenberg family plot in Holyoke.
