Once again our community has lost an outstanding and accomplished woman. Lois Good Anderson's absence leaves an unimaginable loss to everyone; from her family and friends to the many organizations she was part of, including her church, her business associations, and her activities in many civic organizations at both the local and the state level.
What she accomplished is not surprising, given Lois's background, having come from a family in Bark River which could be called a pillar of the community. Values learned at a young age propelled her to the life she lived in Escanaba. She obviously loved people and had a deep caring for everyone, beginning with her family and extending to anyone who may have come into her path. It seems as though she wanted everyone to "see the world" through her travel bureau, where each ones' needs would be met as much as possible, as they traveled from country to country. Like any accomplishing woman, Lois spread herself thin. All her bases were covered, no matter the cost. One would think she could live forever, loving her children, grandchildren, and friends; sustained by such generous caring and love!
Sadly, she is gone. She leaves such a legacy that younger women will never be lacking for the great role model Lois was. Her children and grandchildren can be beaming with pride in their loving mother and grandmother who accomplished so much in a seemingly short time. Lois will never be forgotten.
