Lois enjoyed sewing and spending time with family. She will be dearly missed for her devotion and care for others.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her four sisters.
Lois is survived by her husband of 62 years, E.J. Cates; two sons: Dale E. Cates and David A. Cates; two daughters: Patricia M. Yaeger and Dorene A. Cates; two granddaughters and family: Cynthia M. Koerner and Crystal L. Crespo; and two grandsons and family: Jason Yaeger and Nathan Yaeger.
No services are planned at this time. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at The Gardens for their tremendous care.
