Lois P. York


1915 - 2010 Obituary Condolences
Lois York, 95, passed away Wednesday, April 14, 2010, in Alamogordo. She was born March 14, 1915, in Blackburn, Okla., to Alta and Everett Pearson.
Lois lived most of her younger years in or around Hominy, Okla. She married Ray York on July 19, 1935, at the Hominy Church of the Nazarene. Two daughters were born to Ray and Lois: Mary Shelley and Patricia Anne.
During this time, Lois wrote for many of the Nazarene Church publications. What she wrote exemplified her many years of consistent Christian living, teaching adults, teens and children, Bible study and loving her savior and lord, Jesus Christ.
The family moved to Roswell in 1949. They were members of the Nazarene Church there. When Ray passed away in 1988, Lois moved to Alamogordo to be with her family. She was a member of the Alamogordo Church of the Nazarene, where she taught Sunday school and dedicated her time to serving God through ministries at her church.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Ray; her parents, Alta and Everett Pearson; and a brother, Wayne Pearson.
Survivors include a sister, Loretta Atkinson; daughters Shelley and Patricia; grandchildren Chery and Warren Foxworthy, Theresa and Matt Jones, Linda and Russell Hosey, Michelle and Edward Schauer, Ron and Cassie Sponagel, Mark and Annette Chandler, Diana Hammond, and Dwight and Julie Sponagel.
Lois is also survived by 20 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandson who will remember her love for God and her family, her faithfulness to her church, her sense of humor and fun, and be forever grateful to God for letting them be a part of her life.
Services will be conducted at 10 a.m. Monday, April 19, 2010, at the Hominy Church of the Nazarene in Hominy.
The family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Hamilton-O'Dell Funeral Home to direct the arrangements.
