She was a member of the United Church of Christ Congregational, Vermilion. Antiquing was Lois and Glen's past time along with spending their winters in Florida. They had also enjoyed camping in the summers with their children and friends. Lois and Glen were also avid ballroom dancers, winning many awards during competitions.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Glen Coury; sons Dennis and Glen W. Coury; parents, Willis William and Nera Lucille (nee Reid) Derby; and sisters Naomi Derby.
Lois's request was to have a private graveside service at Maple Grove Cemetery with immediate family facilitated by Rev. Louis Bertoni.
