SHIVELY, Lois Lorene

(Faris) quietly passed away Sept. 3, 2018 in Tampa, FL. She died of age-related medical complications at age 93. Lois was the daughter of Forrest and Opal (Sargent) Faris and was born in Indian Springs, IN Feb. 2, 1925. She was preceded in death by her three brothers, Doug, Don, and Gene; and her husband of 69 years, John Adrian Shively. She is survived by four children, David, Ann, Ted, and Janet; nine grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. All were intimately a part of her life and loved to come to Tampa to visit Nanny and Grandpa John. Lois led a fascinating and full life. She was high school valedictorian, proud Indiana University alumna, loyal collegiate basketball fan, active tennis player into her 80s, avid reader, and hostess extraordinaire. John's career as a physician and professor took them on journeys throughout the world. Wherever they resided, Lois provided indispensable support while pursuing her many interests and activities with family, friends, and church. She was loved by many and kept in touch with a lifetime of friends and relatives. Lois and John spent several happy years in retirement at University Village in Tampa and she will be sorely missed by the many staff members and aides who assisted during her time there. A Celebration of Life service will be held for Lois at Lake Magdalene United Methodist Church at 10 am on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018.
