Lois Bradford passed away peacefully in the quiet morning hours of November 8, 2017.

Born Lois Elinor Holm on July 18, 1931 in Centralia, WA to Dick & Esther Holm, she moved as a young girl with her parents and her little sister Pat to Tacoma, WA.

The family rented part of a house that eventually became their permanent home, just up the hill from her alma mater, Stadium High School.

She later moved to Auburn where she met and married Ken Bradford. They raised their two sons in Auburn and enjoyed the riches of small town life. She worked a few different jobs but she loved to spend time volunteering in the community and her church.

Lois & Ken shared 57 years of marriage until he passed in June of this year.

Lois is survived by sons Chris (Cheryl) Jewett, Craig (Shirley) Jewett, her sister Pat (Tom) Ford, her sisters & brother-in-law Mary Jaton, Betty & Max Kreiter, and Wanda Bradford, 5 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, and cousins & nieces & nephews whom she loved dearly.

She is also survived by her beloved family at Messiah Lutheran Church where there will be a Celebration of Life at 10:00 a.m. on Friday November 17, 2017.
