Lois Ann always had a smile, a funny story and she never forgot a name. We always looked forward to chatting with her at Riley family gatherings and will certainly miss her humor. The kids used to look forward to her visits when she'd stop out at Lori Kime's from time to time when they were younger. So many good memories to think of.

Whenever we had a Corkery family gathering Lois Ann always made time to chat with me. In later years she always asked about my Mom, Mary. I know Mom enjoyed her "cousin" time growing up. May God grant Lois Ann peace.
