Lois was the oldest of three daughters, (Lois, Trena and Pattie) born in Lacassine, Louisiana to French Cajun parents Andrew and Eunia (David) Derouen.

Lois's greatest passions were dancing and traveling. Her energetic optimism combined with being a people person gained her many friends. She was a realtor, organizer, seamstress, cajun cook, match maker, and fun to be around. Born under the Pisces sign meant Lois was "easy-going"?would go either direction?just don't push her too far!!

She also owned and managed 42 rent houses in Abilene, Texas. In Lake Brownwood, Texas, Lois owned and operated and was involved in resort development.
