As the Ward Funeral Director she graced many grieving families not only with her chocolate cake and whole wheat bread but more importantly, her embrace of compassion. As Relief Society President she demonstrated both in words and deeds, the value of visiting teaching. Borrowing a quote from Winston Churchill, when it came to helping people, Lois "never, never, never gave up". Those fortunate enough to be under her care knew and felt the true love of Christ. She never met a person she didnt like and who, in turn, didnt love her!After the death of her husband and best friend, Rulan D. Woodbury, Lois was coaxed away from a lifetime in Cedar City to be welcomed into the Toquerville home and the four loving arms of her daughter, Cyndi, and son-in-law Steve Gilbert.
