She is survived by her son Gary Parker and his spouse Ann, of San Antonio, TX, and her daughter Corinne E.

She was preceded in death by her husband Edward and sister Angie Dragnett, both in 2005.
Lois was a graduate of St. Catherine’s High School and attended Dominican College of Racine. She was employed by S.C. Johnson and worked in the healthcare field for fifteen years, before transitioning to co-owner and hostess of The Parkway Bar and Restaurant on North Main Street in Racine. Lois was a volunteer with St. Luke’s Hospital Auxiliary, and she also served as a troop leader for Cub Scouts and Brownies. She was a member of the North Shore Tennis Club for many years, as well as the Wustum Museum and the Wustum Flower Guild.

In keeping with Lois’s wishes, private funeral services will be held for the family at the Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Union Grove. Interment will be next to her husband, Major Edward A. Parker, and a Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will take place in the future.
