Lois was born on November 25, 1955 to Herbert and Jenny Swinford at St. Margret's in Hammond. She lived her life to help other people so much even her pathway of income was paved through being a former caregiver and later, her career in the medical profession. The power and strength she had when someone needed her would make Superman step aside, and her down to earth free spirit was enough to make John Wayne turn his head and blush. Mom; Grandma, Sis, Aunt, Cousin, life long friend, you were and always will be forever loved.
