Dec 15, 1953 - Oct 11, 2012 CHOCTAW Lois Grissella Elms, 58, of Choctaw, OK, lost her courageous battle with cancer on Oct. 11, 2012. She was born in Espanola, NM to Louis and Mary Carlson Speer on Dec. 15, 1953. Lois married Mark Elms, the love of her life, Sept. 3, 1983, and spent the next 29 years making a loving life and home with him. She worked as a sheet metal mechanic for many years at Tinker AFB. Lois loved riding her Can-Am Spyder and went on many rides with Mark. After his wedding day, one of Mark's best days happened when Lois finally left her position lagging behind him to pass him on her Spyder and told him, "Going fast is cool!" It was a proud day for Mark. Lois enjoyed creating stained glass art pieces, and she also loved being president of her local Aglow ladies group. She loved bringing women to the Lord and was a friend to everyone. Lois is survived by her husband, Mark; daughter, Katie and her husband Michael; three grandchildren, Kimbri, Bailey and Chase; her two furry kids, Rocko and Rosie; as well as a host of loving family and friends. Lois was a beautiful woman on the inside and outside, and she will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. Memorial donations may be made to Susan G. Koman for the Cure, 115 Park Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73102. Graveside services will be held 2 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 15, 2012, at Arlington Memory Gardens in Midwest City, OK.
