Surrounded by her family, Lois Briggs, 76, a loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister, passed away peacefully May 14, 2014, at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Cindy and Richard Roberson, in Rexburg.
Lois was born on April 20, 1938, the third of four children to Rulon and Eva Mace Hughes in Teton City, Idaho. Lois grew up in a fun and loving family, enjoying her siblings, Neal, Donna and Rex.
On June 10, 1954, Lois married Kyle Carter. Together they bought the Carter family farm and worked side-by-side farming in the Sugar City area. Lois was lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mom with the exception of helping her father in the Rulon Hughes Potato Company on a few occasions. After the kids were raised, Lois worked for her son, Jeff, as a secretary at Upper Valley Home Health.
Lois enjoyed traveling to many different parts of the world with family and friends. She and Kyle took many trips with her parents, aunts and uncles, as well as their friends, Jack and Verla Brown. She also had the good fortune of taking all her kids and grandkids to Disneyland in 1986 and then a fun-filled cruise to Mexico with her children.
Lois was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served faithfully in many organizations, including in both the Primary and Relief Society presidencies, as well as the ward librarian. She also served many years as a Cub Scout leader and enjoyed her time with the boys.
Later in life, Lois married Glenn Briggs and together they enjoyed many good times, which included trips to Arizona in the winters and a trip to Hawaii, as well as a cruise. After Glenn passed away, Lois continued to spend her winters in Yuma, Ariz., with friends and family.
Lois was a member of the DUP and the Red Hats Society. She looked forward to the family reunions, where she could find out the latest on her extended family members. The love of Lois's life was spending time with her children and grandchildren. Her zest for life, as well as love and admiration for others, will forever be remembered. She was a great inspiration of always treating others kindly and will be missed.
Lois is survived by her five children, Jeff (Mary) Carter and Craig (Galene) Carter, of Sugar City; Cindy (Richard) Roberson, of Rexburg; Jackie Gout, of Dillon, Mont., and Todd Carter, of Tetonia; 20 grandchildren and 55 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Neal and Fawn Hughes.
She was preceded in death by her husband Glenn Briggs, her parents Eva and Rulon Hughes, a sister, Donna Nelson and brother, Rex Hughes.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, May 17, at 11 a.m. at the Teton 2nd LDS Ward Chapel with Bishop Craig Carter officiating, with a viewing from 10 to 10:45 a.m. the day of the funeral. A viewing will also be held at Flamm Funeral Home in Rexburg from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Friday.
