Lois died peacefully on Wednesday, December 7th surrounded by loving friends. She was 92.
We are so grateful to have had Lois in our circle of animal rights activists and vegan advocates. She brought wisdom, commitment to principles, and an infectious “can do” attitude. She knew her place in this world was to be part of making it a better world, speaking out, and helping those in need.
We knew Lois as an advocate for animals; however, she also worked continuously throughout her life for humanity.
Lois fought for human rights and peace and is known for helping to bring Sister Mary Corita to San Luis Obispo to speak and for placing a Corita Billboard on Route 101 on the way to North County which stated: “We Can Create Life Without War”.
Lois is also recognized as one of the most influential people in the world of Occupational therapy. While living in Los Angeles, she was a prolific inventor of mechanisms to help with specialized splints that helped therapists worldwide. http://www.otcentennial.org/100-influential-people
We will miss you, Lois! – Peggy, Sherstin, Patrick, and so many others…
