Lois June Sacks from Farmington, New Mexico was 90 years-old when she was called home to be with her Heavenly Father on August 31, 2021. She was born on June 27, 1931 to Elmer O. and Ada (Helen) Lister in Aitchison, Kansas.
As a little girl (age 6) Lois June would meet the boy (Edwin L. Sacks), that she knew would be the man that she would one day be married to for over 74 years.
As a young mother and wife, the family moved from Kansas to New Mexico. It was her strength, love, and faith that was the anchor that allowed their family to grow and prosper.
Her heart was filled by the joy she received from her family and her faith in God. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother. Family always came first, but she could always find time for her other passions which include cooking, her show, journaling, and crocheting.
Later in life she found enjoyment in RV-ing with her husband and cat Pepper. They traveled the country. She lived from the West Coast to the East Coast before calling Florida home for 16 years.
The call of family brought the two of them home to New Mexico where she again blessed us with her love and infectious smile. She will be missed.
Lois June Sacks was proceeded in death by her parents Elmer O. and Ada (Helen) Lister; her son-in-law Robert (R.J) Gandee; daughter-in-law: Susan Dalpiaz; as well as her father-in-law Henry Dean and mother-in-law Ada Sacks
