Born in the Winfree Community of Orange County, February 25, 1920, she was the daughter of Loranzy R. Sarver and Minnie (Winfree) Sarver. Lois graduated third in her class in 1938. She raised her five children and then went to school at Lamar University and got her elementary teaching certificate. Just wanting the experience, she taught for one year and retired, not considering it work.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Otha Duhon; parents; sons, Otis Duhon and Joe Alan Duhon and her grandson, Randy Duhon.
Those left to cherish her memory include her children, Juanita McDonald, Gloria Graves and Patricia Lewallen; eight grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; eight step-great-grandchildren and her sister, Juanita Toronjo.
Her family would like to thank Texas Total Care and Hospice for their great care, along with her night sitter Mrs. Watson and all of the Calder Woods staff and residents.
