Lois Lorene Enns of Medicine Hat passed away on Saturday, December 7, 2019, at the age of 88 years, beloved wife of the late Ken Enns. She leaves to cherish her memory her five children, Ron (Lee Ann) Enns of Leduc, James (Bernie) Enns of Medicine Hat, Linda (Frank) Hvidsten of Airdrie, Kathy Enns of Medicine Hat and Pat Enns of Redcliff; twelve grandchildren, Jenine (Mark) McInnis, Korin (James) Fisher, Eric (Adele) Hvidsten, Crystal (Rob) Zeemel, Angelina (Jamie) Haddock, Donalda (Leroy) Sadler, Kayla (Adam) Trahish, Stephanie (Dustin) Helle, Stephen (Cayla) McSweeny, Christopher Murphy, Chantel (Nathan) DeAzevedo and Madison Galonski; nineteen great grandchildren; six great great grandchildren; one sister-in-law, Jeanette Engstrom. She was predeceased by her parents, John and Eva Angle; her husband, Ken on May 15, 1999, Ken’s parents Ted and Emily Enns and her son-in-law Don Galonski. Lois grew up on a farm near Whitla, Alberta with her Parents John and Eva Angle and her Grandmother Luella Elliott. She attended school in the Whitla and Bow Island Area. Her best friend was Marion Elliott. As a youngster she had a dog named Sport. Sport’s mission was to protect Lois and he followed her wherever she went. After graduation she attended Garbutt’s Business Academy. Her first job was at the Singer Sewing Centre. She married Ken on October 10, 1952, and they farmed in the Bullshead area. Lois found a new best friend/sister, Jeannette Enns; Lois’ special friends were Belva and Marvin Stuber, Francis and Elmer Becker. Lois will be fondly remembered by her family for her fabulous skills of playing the piano, crafts such as knitting and crocheting, her collection of dolls, bells and spoons, and most of all her baking which she taught to her many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Lois was known for organizing the delivery of fresh blueberries from LULU Farms in B.C, collecting orders from her neighbors and picking them up from the train and delivering them to their farms. Never shy of hard work, she made breakfast, school lunches, milked the cows, separated cream, all before getting the kids to the bus. To earn extra money she made trips to Medicine Hat to sell cream, eggs, Regal and had the occasional Tupperware Party. In 1975 Lois and Ken moved to Redcliff after selling the farm. Ken passed away and Lois lived in Redcliff until she sold and moved to Chinook Village and then to Park Meadows. She will always be remembered as Grams, Grandma Lois and Sweetie Pie.

Lois always had time for a cup of tea and freshly baked cookies and somehow I always knew when she was making cookies. She made sure we had our favourite tarts at Christmas and throughout the year. She had a great sense of humour and could take a good teasing. She was a generous, kind friend to Mom and we will miss her. All of our heartfelt condolences to Ron, Linda, Jimmy, Kathy , Patty and all their families. ❤❤

So sorry to hear of your moms passing. I will remember Lois for her very witty sense of humour and oh so sarcastic remarks. She could take a good teasing and was never at a loss for words. I enjoyed many afternoons having coffee and cookies with the ladies at Meadow Ridge and your mom always made us laugh. My mother enjoyed Lois as well and they had many laughs together. Sending thoughts and prayers to all of you.
