Lois was born on Jan. 21, 1928, at Turkey Run State Park, in Parke County, Ind., to Cecil and Nellie (Cox) Hale, who are both deceased. Lois had one brother, Jack Hale who is deceased; and two sisters who died as infants during the depression. Lois’ first husband, Robert L. Parker, passed away after 20 years of marriage in 1968. She later married Thomas R. Yoder and he passed away after 32 years of marriage in 2006.

Lois and Bobby had two daughters who survive, Karen (Gray) Prose of Terre Haute, and Julia (Curtis) Justice of Casey, Ill.; three grandchildren, Christopher Lawrence and Kimberlee Davidson-Russell (husband Chris) of Casey, and Bob Prose (wife Bobbi) of Terre Haute; eight great-grandchildren, Keightlyn (Billy) Lawrence-Seeley, Victoria and Dylan Lawrence, Kristin, Matthew and Macy Davidson, and Alison and Nathan Prose.

Lois led a very full and interesting life with Tom. Shortly after their marriage, they bought a houseboat and took off for adventure. They settled for a time in Galveston, Texas, building a waterfront home while living on the houseboat and doing home improvements for others. They purchased a shrimp boat and pursued that for some time. They traveled the Caribbean islands for six months and settled in the Dominican Republic. Here they bought beachfront properties and went into the rental business. They met people from all over the world and traveled the world themselves. After 19 years in the DR, they returned to the USA, staying in Naples, Fla., for a couple of years then near Orlando for a couple. When Tom passed away in April of 2006, Lois returned to the Midwest to live near her daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
