Lois S. King

Lois S. King, age 78, of Urbana, Ohio reached her goal Wednesday, December 22, 2021, at home surrounded by her family.

She was born February 9, 1943, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the daughter of the late Cleo and Mary (Sauble) Miller. She was also preceded in death by her brother, Howard Miller; a sister-in-law, Nancy Miller and an infant granddaughter, Lauren Nicole King.

On May 31, 1969, Lois married her soul mate, Nolan King of West Liberty, Ohio. In later years, Lois depended on Nolan for her care, and it was his highest honor to take on that role.

In addition to her loving husband, she is survived by her four children: Melissa (Tom) Bonifield of Dayton, Kurt (Becky) King of Cable, Suzy (Geoff) Hillman of Ashland and Amy (Tim) Yoder of West Liberty; 13 grandchildren who lovingly called her “Memaw”: Julia, Thomas, Matthew, and Emily Bonifield; Mason and Miles King; Abby, Isaac, Katie, and Joshua Hillman; Allie, Tate, and Ashley Yoder.

Lois graduated from Lancaster School of Nursing with her RN degree, then received a bachelor’s degree from St. Joseph’s College in Maine and a master’s degree in healthcare. She used her skills to care for others in various hospitals, Oak Hill Medical Center, Green Hills Community, and retired from her career as a school nurse at Triad Local Schools in 2009. During her retirement, she worked alongside her husband at Container King Inc.

Lois was a member of the Mechanicsburg Christian Fellowship Church and in later years attended the Quest Community Church in West Liberty.

She served by teaching CPR, listening to others, and sharing her faith. Lois loved all her friends who took her to lunch, brought her coffee, and visited regularly. She enjoyed reading, working in her flower beds, and attending her grandchildren’s events. She prayed over her grandchildren daily and encouraged them to pursue the path the Lord has laid out for them. It was/is her heart’s desire that all her friends, children, and grandchildren come to know Jesus personally.

Pastors Mark Miller and Bill Walker will officiate a memorial service at the Quest Community Church in West Liberty Tuesday, January 4, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. Visitation will be held two hours prior to the memorial service from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Memorial Contributions may be made to the Hospice of Dayton 324 Wilmington Ave. Dayton, OH 45420

The staff of the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home & Cremation Center in West Liberty is honored to serve the King family.
