Delores ‘Lois” Lowry of Merced passed away peacefully June 28, 2021. Born in Harlem, New York and raised in Queens where Lois lived until deciding to move to California. Here she rediscovered her love for Church and the Lord. After graduating Phi Theta Kappa and earning her A.A degree from Merced College, she began nurturing her passion for writing. She wrote poems and stories, ultimately turning them into plays. Lois’ past times included spending time with her grandchildren, church family and not to forget, solving crossword puzzles.

Known for her laugh and smile, her memory will forever be in the hearts of many.
