Lois May (Griggs) Stackhouse, born May 14, 1927, in Ashtabula, Ohio, died Wednesday, Jan. 3, at Providence Diversicare in New Albany. She was 90.
Her parents were Fred March Griggs and Wilda (Brooks) Griggs. Lois graduated from Madison (Ohio) Memorial High School and, in 1947, married Owen Homer Stackhouse.
She was a member of Harrison Avenue United Methodist Church in Clarksville for decades. When services at that facility ended during her nursing home stay, she was "adopted" by the congregation at Ohio Falls United Methodist Church in Clarksville. She also attended services offered at the Diversicare facility by Christ's Community Church of the Nazarene in New Albany.
She is survived by her sons and their spouses, Bob and Barbara Stackhouse, and Ben Stackhouse and Melanie Wilding; four grandsons, 10 great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband (1998), brothers Fred and Robert Griggs, sister Wilda Wyant, stepbrother Ernest Rhoads and stepsister Geraldine Rhoads.
Visitation will be held Monday, Jan. 8, at Scott's Funeral Home, 2515 Veterans Parkway, Jeffersonville, from 2 to 6 p.m., followed by a memorial service at 6 p.m. in the facility's chapel.
The family wishes to thank the caregivers at Providence, who helped Lois restore a sense of independence, pride and purpose in her later years.
