Lois was born Feb. 10, 1926, to Arthur and Estella (Curtis) Wheatley.
Lois was a native of Colorado and a longtime resident of Pine Bluffs, Wyo., Sulphur, Okla., and Scottsbluff, Neb. She and Winfrey were married for 66 years. Her life was given in service of love and generosity to her faith in God and her church. She was never too busy to volunteer her help to her family, friends and neighbors. Lois especially loved children, and greatly enjoyed following her grandchildren’s activities. She never had a harsh word for anyone and was always encouraging when others were down. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Survivors include sons, Gary (Connie) Glenn of Douglas, Wyo., and John Glenn of Sidney; brothers, Bob (Phyllis) Wheatley of Lochbuie, Colo., and Roland Wheatley of Independence, Mo.; eight grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.
