She had many special friends from crochet club, former mall walkers, and swimming friends from various health clubs over the years.

Lois spent her life touching hearts and creating memories. She found her true calling in life working for the Appleton Area School District. Up until the day of her passing people often recognized her. They approached her and said, “Are you Mrs. Jenkel?
