Lois went home to be with the Lord Our God on Friday, August 25, 2017 at Willis-Knighton Medical Center Bossier City, LA. She was born to Jacob E Spiker and Lillian (Delancy) Spiker on Oct. 2, 1939 in Johnstown. On December 10, 1959 she wed Donald J Penrod. She devoted her life to caring for her family and others. Lois was an exceptional daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend. She spent many years teaching Sunday School at Beulah United Methodist Church, and was a Foster Grandparent volunteering at Ferndale Elementary. Her love of children prompted her to move to Bossier City in 2009 to be close to her new grandchildren. Lois always had a smile and was quick to comfort anyone in need. She was proceeded in death by her parents, husband, infant daughter Peggy Ann, son Robert, daughter-in-law Kerry, brother Eugene, and sister Shirley. She is survived by her children: Donald W (Lisa) -Johnstown, David A (Stephanie)- Lavale, MD, Sherri Borocz (Robert) -Bossier City, LA; her grandchildren; Shannon Sewak (Josh), Ian and Nichole Penrod, Ava & Jackson Borocz, step-grandsons Ryan & Cory Campbell and her brother Harry Jacob Spiker-Erie. Our lives will be forever changed with a void that can never be filled. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted," Matthew 5:4.
