Not sure what to say?

My collection of your beautiful paintings will always remind me of you.Peace and Joy, Lois - Anne Maguire

Mrs McIvor was my much loved art teacher at Hill Top School for Girls in the 1960s - she was one of those people who left a significant impression on me because of her genuine care and her passion for her work. My sincere sympathy to all the family on her passing. Ann-Marie Goulstone (nee Anderson)

It feels like the end of an era to know Lois has passed away, but I shall fondly remember our long walks when we were neighbours in Wood Bay in Titirangi, and also how much I enjoyed sharing her informal home exhibitions of her paintings. We enjoyed many cups of coffee and glasses of wine as we chatted and I valued her personal support and kindness. I shall treasure the small piece of Lois's work that hangs on my living room wall and remember her gentle influence on my life. Rest in peace...

Remembering you Lois. You welcomed me into your family and provided friendship and love. For that I thank you. Lynette
