Lois Qualls
FULTON – Lois Qualls, daughter of Wilton Lois and Hazel Dell Taylor Humphres, died at her home in Fulton. Her life was a tapestry of love, loss and laughter.
Lois was born in Marietta on Jan. 23, 1939. She attended schools in Fulton. After exchanging letters with Roosevelt Wilson Dill for a year, the two married Nov. 23, 1955. During Roosevelt’s military service the Dills lived in California and Mississippi. Later they moved north and settled in Zion, Ill. Together they raised four children: Karl Mitchell, Sandra Kay, Randall Wade and Belinda Gay. Lois worked in the engine plant for American Motors Corporation in Kenosha, Wis. In January 1977, Lois’ husband of 22 years suffered a fatal heart attack.

In 1982 Lois married Billy Qualls. Together they traveled the country, from Wisconsin Dells to Sea World to Washington D.C. After her mother’s death Lois moved with her husband and her father, Wilton, from Zion, Ill., to Verona. Lois cared for her father at home for many years before his passing.

After nearly three decades of love, Lois and Bill were separated by his death in Florida in 2009.

Whether tending dainty pink and purple impatiens, growing luscious red tomatoes, or knitting together yarns in the colors of the rainbow, Lois filled her life with color.
Lois loved her cameras and used them well, making sure to always print doubles. She enjoyed thousands of hours knitting and crocheting blankets, footies, dishcloths and dolls for her children, grandchildren and friends. She read romance novels or, in her words, “love books” and checked them out 50 at a time from Fulton’s library. She loved Elvis Presley.

Those who remain to honor her memory are her children, Sandra Kay Church (Tim), Randy Wade (Diane) Dill and Belinda Gay (Brian) Sullivan; her grandchildren, Tammy Lynette Freeman (Steve) Peacy, Tony Lee (Danielle) Freeman, Teri Kay (Shawn) Smith, Daniel Lee Dill, Katherine Maeve Sullivan and Sara Lauren Sullivan; and her great-grandchildren, Jason Timothy Bloom, Emma Kay Bloom, Joshua Lee Freeman, Kayleigh Brianne Smith, Keagan Raymond Peacy, Amanda Faith Smith and Skylar Clayton-Lee Smith; and many cousins, uncles and aunts.

She is now reunited with her parents, Wilton and Hazel; by Roosevelt and their son, Karl; by her husband, Bill, and his mother, Lucille; and by her beloved puppies, Prince, Princess, Bobby, Stormy, L’il Bit and Misty.
Services were held Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013, at Senter Funeral Home in Fulton.
