Lois S. Matthews, formerly from Wilmington, Delaware, passed away at her daughter's home in Rising, Sun, Maryland on March 1, 2018 at the age of 91.

Lois' greatest joy was being with her family. She leaves to cherish her memory her devoted daughter, Judi Matthews Miller (Stephen); grandson, Douglas L.

Megee; sister-in-law, Mary Jane Valentine and her son, Wayne (Paula) and their son, Michael; sister-in-law Jacqueline Shirley and her daughter, Nannette and her grandchildren, Bill (Mary), Walter, Jacqueline, and Madeline; and her sister-in-law, Betty Matthews.

Upon Lois' request, there will be no viewing and burial will be held privately at the convenience of the family. Those who wish to contribute in her memory may do so to a charity of their choice.
