Lois Wood Richardson

October 18, 1943 — October 11, 2023

Asheboro

 

Lois Wood Richardson, age 79, of Asheboro passed away Wednesday, October 11, 2023 at her home.

Lois was born on October 18, 1943 to Garfield and Lucille Wood. She was a member of Asheboro Friends Meeting and often helped make chicken pies for fund raisers. One of Lois' great joys was traveling with her late husband, Dan. During their travels, they visited 48 of the 50 states together. She loved life, working in the yard with her flowers, laughter and fellowship with friends and family. She enjoyed her weekly Rook game with friends, lovingly dubbed "The Rookies". Some of her last words were that she "loved everyone", and truly she did.

In addition to her parents, Lois was preceded in death by her loving husband, Dan Richardson and brother, Clayton Wood.

She is survived by her daughters, Amy Fogleman (Al), Teresa Holston (Wayne); son, Tim Richardson (fiancée Judy); grandchildren, Brandi Nicole Hunley, Terri Lynn Hunley (fiancé Billy Wright) and Ava Grace Fogleman; daughter by choice, Kesha Andrews (Ben); brother, Chester Wood (Sandy); special friend, R. P. Routh and many other beloved family members and friends.

The family will receive friends Wednesday, October 18, 2023 from 12 noon to 2:00 pm at Asheboro Friends Meeting, 230 E. Kivett St., Asheboro. Funeral services will follow at 2:00 pm with Rev. David Millikan officiating. Burial will be in Randolph Memorial Park.
