She was the last surviving member of her family having been preceded in death by her sisters Mary Ellen Bratton and Joyce Fletcher and her brothers Donald Fletcher, Harry Fletcher and an infant brother.

Lois began working at Beckley Manufacturing following her graduation from Glen Rogers High School. It was there that she and Bud met and began their life together. She left Beckley Manufacturing and after a few years she went to work for the United States Postal Service. Lois worked at the Crab Orchard Post Office and retired from the Sophia Post Office.
