lois-for-obit-002April 6, 1924 — November 12, 2016

Lois Gardner Fry peacefully returned home to her Heavenly Father on Nov. 12, 2016, with her four daughters by her side.

Lois was born April 6, 1924, to Maude Crosby Gardner and Erastus Snow Gardner in St. George, Utah.  She grew up in St. George and Pine Valley and loved life there.

She attended Dixie College and then went to BYU. She left BYU to marry George Berry Fry who had just returned from military service. They were later sealed in the St. George LDS Temple for time and all eternity.

She loved being a wife and a mother. She loved to sing, to play the piano and organ. Her passions were sewing, cooking and gardening. She loved to be of service in her community and in many callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints including being the Relief Society president of the Pine Valley branch. Along with George, she served in the temple for nearly two decades. 

Upon George’s retirement, they returned to the homes they loved in St. George and Pine Valley. 

Her smiles, giggles, her hugs, her chocolate chip cookie dough in the freezer for the grandkids and her teary eyes upon kids and grandkids departures will be greatly missed.

She was preceded in death by her husband, George, her brother, Dean Gardner, and her sister, Maureen Johnson. She is survived by her four daughters: Barbara(Max) McDonald, Shirley (Dan)Cress, Carol(Brent) Snow and Janet (Doug)Taysom. She has 15 grandchildren and 44 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.
