A memorial service at Desert Garden Church will be held on June 14th at 10:00 A.M. An additional memorial service will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church, Waupaca WI, later this summer.
Lois' parents Milton and Marguerite Evory preceded her death. Survivors include husband, Clifton Paul Finger; son, Jeff and wife Kris and their children Ryan and Megan; son, Tom and daughter Katie and her children Aaron and Alex; and two brothers, Ray (Helen) and Ken (Yaeko) Evory. She also is survived by six step-children: Debra, Edward, Patricia, Jeff, Kathy and Brian; along with seventeen additional grandchildren: Eric, Ryan, John, Jeremy, Kerry, Andrea, Kim, Brad, Matt, Rebecca, Morgan, Craig, Rachel, Laura, Jenny, Marcus and Avery, and eight great-grandchildren. Lois was grandma to them all and treated them all alike.
Lois graduated from Stanford High school in CT and then went on to Danbury College, now known as UConn University, obtaining a teachers degree in elementary education. This was her first passion. Upon graduating she married Ronald Cassidy. They lived in the Madison and Milwaukee area. Their marriage parted in 1974. Lois then became an educator for challenged children in the Weyauwega Wisconsin school system, remaining there until her retirement.
Clifton and Lois were married on November 24, 1988. After exploring Arizona for two or three years, they decided to have their retirement home built in 1996 in Sun City West, becoming snowbirds. They enjoyed driving between Wisconsin and Arizona and all points east and west for the next twenty five years, taking in about every site in our magnificent country.
Lois will be missed by the hundreds of friends she acquired through the years as well as her family, especially, her husband, her children, twenty-one grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.
While going through some papers, the family found this note from Lois, "When I am no longer living, I want to be remembered for being a loving mother, a loving wife, being creative and a joy to be around."
