Lois passed away peacefully in her sleep during the pre-dawn hours June 4th, 2016 at the age of 87 years. Lois was surrounded by family on her last day of life. She was courageous until the end of her long struggle with Parkinson's disease diagnosed in 2004. Lois was born on October 22nd, 1928 to Mr. and Mrs. William A. Webb (Elizabeth) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was raised in the small town of Narberth, Penn., and was the only daughter out of five children. She had four brothers, William, Donald, Robert, and John. She was pre-deceased by brothers William, and Donald. Lois was also pre-deceased by husband Donald C. Griffith in October 1986.
