Sympathy to Ryall family. Lois was a cousin of my mother, Doris pfaff. She was raised across the road from our family farm. Such a kind caring cousin!

I was so sorry to hear of Lois’s passing. Lois was a cousin of my mom Labelle from the King side of our family. I remember both Al and Lois from our annual King picnic every June in Exeter. Lois with her wonderful smile. Always a smile. Al helped me get my first job at the London Psychiatric Hospital. They were a kind, wonderful and loving couple. Our sincere condolences

Lois was my Great Aunt (my grandma was Etoile Zavitz, nee Ryall). Aunt Lois was such a bright spirit and a lovely lady to look up to when I was growing up. She will be missed.

Condolence from Rick, Tanya, Caleb and Jamieson Goertz on September 17th, 2020 7:21 PM

Was sad to hear of Lois’ passing. Having been neighbours for almost 17yrs, she was the kindest person anyone could hope to have next door. Our 2yr old kids walking over and knocking on her back door to get a cookie will never be forgotten. Our condolences to her family and friends.

Condolence from Jean (King) Neil on September 17th, 2020 8:15 PM

So sorry Lois is gone but glad we talked so often on the telephone since there were only four King first cousins left. I enjoyed our phone visits and always had a good laugh before we would hang up. She will be missed by many.
Sincere sympathy.

Jean (King) Neil and family

Condolence from Barry McNaughton on September 17th, 2020 8:24 PM

I am sorry to hear of Aunt Lois passing. I sit back and as we lost my grandparents at a young age, her and Uncle Al filled that void in my life. I remember that Aunt Lois wanted to lay glads at her parents plots, and wanted someone to ride up with her to the cemetery. So in the passenger seat I get knowing that her eye sight was failing, but determined to accomplish this task. I tried not to show that I was nervous, but she knew me too well, and said we better stop at Tim Hortons for a coffee to calm my nerves!! She could read me like a book.
Many a chocolate cake she made, and everyone was filled with love being made by her precious hands. Oh we were not spoiled at all!!
Aunt Lois loved fun, and I remember they purchased a yellow umbrella for their patio table, of course could be seen at the farm, and my mother who dislikes yellow, I know they used to put it up and just wait for the phone call from Mom!!
Aunt Lois you worked hard at Bell, supported Uncle Al when he needed it most, and were always there for us!
It is now your turn to rest, well deserved.
Rest In Peace Aunt Lois XOXO

Condolence from Bob Petrie on September 17th, 2020 8:46 PM

So Sorry to read of Lois’ passing. My wife and I worked many years with Lois at the Bell and then to live in the same community. Lois was a wonder person along with her husband Al. Great couple.

Condolence from Kayla Roloson on September 18th, 2020 11:57 AM

My grandparents lived beside Lois and I will sincerely miss our euchre battles with her and my nana against my sister and I. We loved going over to her house to visit. She will be so missed.

Condolence from Tom & Carol Baker on September 18th, 2020 12:15 PM

Our sincere condolences to all family and friends. We will always cherish the many memories we have had while we lived next door to Al and Lois for 45 years. Lois delivering a basket of cucumbers to our door from their garden started a canning project that continues to this day. Many evenings sitting on the front porch glider chatting . Euchre nights once a month when you were free to join us. Lois always having baked goods ready for a delicious treat. A panic call from Lois when Al decided to take a brisk stroll prompting a marathon run. Tom always enjoyed doing odd jobs for Lois whenever the need arose. We both looked forward to visiting Lois after she moved to Richmond Woods too. So many fond memories to cherish. We will miss you.
Tom & Carol Baker

Condolence from Phyllis Case on September 18th, 2020 2:26 PM

Lois and I were life long friends. We met in Exeter one Saturday night after we both passed our entrance. Since that day we have been best friends. I will miss our visits and phone calls. Rest In Peace Lois until we meet again!

Condolence from Mary Beth Johnson on September 18th, 2020 4:26 PM

So sorry to hear of Lois passing, she will be missed. The Ryalls were always great neighbors to our family. Growing up, I remember their large garden, trick or treating at their house and them graciously buying whatever fundraising item my siblings and I were selling. Sympathies to her family and friends.

Condolence from Pete and Wendy Case on September 18th, 2020 5:47 PM

Deepest sympathy to Lois’s family at this sad time. We knew Lois as Mom’s best friend. She remembered us on our wedding day with a beautiful hand knit Afghan. A lovely lady indeed. May she rest in the sweetest peace.

I was so sad to hear of Lois’ passing. She was a wonderful woman, and I will miss seeing her at Richmond Woods where I have worked since it opened so was here when Lois moved in. She was loved by many here. Always a smile on her face. The halls will not be the same without her walking down them.
