Lois Ann Hillberry, 73, our beautiful and loving wife, mother, and grandmother passed away October 31, 2015 in Thornton, CO surrounded by family. Born on April 25, 1942 in Sheridan, Wyoming, Lois was the oldest daughter and third child of Louis and Ann Lavin and grew up in Worland, WY.

Lois was a devoted mother and wife, active year round providing for her family. A passionate cook, her family and friends enjoyed amazing home cooked meals and baked goods. As an accomplished seamstress, she had her four daughters wearing matching homemade outfits to find them in a crowd. She made many Halloween costumes, prom and wedding dresses.
Lois had many roles when her daughters were young: 4-H leader, favorite schoolroom mother, Brownie leader and team driver. As her girls got older, she became their biggest fan and cheerleader during all sports seasons. As years passed, her role changed to active and loving grandmother. Lois instilled a strong sense of family in her daughters, without exception family gathered every year to celebrate Christmas.
