Lois Ann Morris Thomas Obituary
August 17, 1922 - July 27, 2018
Lois Ann Morris Thomas, born in Chrisman Illinois on August 17, 1922, passed away on July 27th, 2018 in San Antonio. She is preceded in death by her husband and love of her life, Earl E.(Gene) Thomas, as well as her parents, Clifford Morris and Emma Geiling Morris, brother, O. Reese Mooris and niece Leanne Morris.

Lois graduated from Paris High School and Terre Haute Commercial College. She served as the Post Master of Bismark, Illinois, as an accountant for three Air Force bases, as well as a supervisor at the trust department of Frost Bank. She was also a licencsed realtor in SA. Mrs. Thomas was a member of the American Business Women's Association, Alamo City Historical Car Club, Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary, as well as the SA Musical Club.

Lois and Gene were married for over 67 years. She assisted Gene with their business, Thomas Auto Sales, for over 35 years. They enjoyed a mutual love of dachshunds, antique cars, and traveling throughout the U.S. in their RV.

Mrs. Thomas was a very active member of Woodlawn Christian Church and served as a Deaconess. Her faith and her church family were very dear to her.

All of those who were lucky to have Lois in their lives felt truly blessed. She had a magical way of making you feel very special and all were touched by her generosity, humor, and compassion.

A memorial service will be held at Morningside Manor Chapel on Saturday, August 11, 2018 at 10 am at 602 Babcock Rd, San Antonio TX. A memorial service will also be held at Templeton Funeral Home with burial at Edgar Cemetery, all in Paris, Illinois.

We wish to thank all of the staff at Morningside Manor for the loving care provided to Lois.
