Lois Ellen Carter-Edwards

CARTER-EDWARDS, LOIS (nee Russell):  On December 31, 2017 at the age of 90, Lois once again reunited with Ed, the love of her life and husband of 70 years, who passed away earlier in 2017. A loving wife, a supportive partner, and mother to Dennis (Karen), Leanne (Mike) and predeceased by daughter Lynda. Lois leaves behind grandsons Trent, Craig, Tyler, Justin and John and three great grandchildren Sean, Chloe and Callum. Lois is also survived by sisters Audrey Gordon and Muriel Drolet. Lois was a keen bingo and card player, accomplished knitter and travel companion with Ed on many trips near and far from home. Lois enjoyed an active social life they shared together with the Hamilton Theatre Company, Ancaster Senior Center, Ed’s many speaking and singing engagements and the fellowship of their friends over the years in Ancaster, Bala and Smithville, especially Smithville United Church. Per Lois’s wishes cremation has taken place.  A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held at Smithville United Church, 116 West Street (Regional Rd 20), Smithville on Saturday, January 6 at 11:00 a.m. A gathering for lunch will follow after the service. Donations are welcomed for McNally House Hospice in Grimsby where Lois was lovingly cared for in her final days.  Our family would like to thank Dr. Cano and other physicians and staff, nurses at West Lincoln Memorial, and staff at Maplecrest Village who provided their expertise and compassion for Lois.
