Growing up, Lois spent her childhood in the Kansas City area. She attended school in Lee's Summit until her junior year, when her parents purchased a farm in Schell City, Mo. After graduating from high school, Lois began working at the state Hospital in Nevada, Mo. While working there, she met Willis A. Lowrey. The couple were married in 1973 at her parents’ home in Schell City, surrounded by friends and family. The couple lived on a farm just outside of El Dorado Springs, but continued to work at the hospital. In 1976, the couple was blessed with their son, Shannon. After he was born, Lois decided to stay home and raise her son. Lois has always taken great joy in caring for others. While raising her son, she also cared for her parents. In 1988, when her mother unfortunately passed away, Lois decided to relocate to Harrisonville, Mo. While living there she worked part-time, at various convenient stores, until 2000 when her health would no longer allow her to work. Lois has numerous hobbies, but her favorites include crocheting afghans, reading and watching movies. “My life is so full and I am so glad that I chose to make Community Springs my home,” Lois says with a smile. “I have made many friends and enjoy all the activities.” Thank you Lois for being Resident of the Month at Community Springs Healthcare Facility.
