Lois Van Skike

Shelton, Wash. —  

Lois Van Skike

 

February 12, 2013

 

Lois Van Skike passed away on February 12, 2013. She lived in Shelton, Washington with her daughter ~ Kathryn and her husband, William. Lois was preceded in death by her husband Charles N. Van Skike. She is survived by three children ~ Julius Van Skike and Karyl (Whitney) Van Skike, in Ritzville, WA; Toby Van Skike and Suzanne (Cushing) Van Skike in Benson, AZ; and Kathryn (Van Skike) Sundquist and William Sundquist in Shelton, WA.

Lois also had 9 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren. Lois was born and lived in Clinton, Iowa until they moved to DeWitt and eventually moved to AZ. After Charles passed away in 2005 Lois lived with her son, Toby until 2008 in AZ, and then she moved up to Washington State to be with her daughter, Kathryn. Lois rested comfortably and peacefully at home where she passed away; she did not suffer, she just went to sleep in Jesus.

Julius, Toby and Kathryn have very fond memories of growing up with a loving mom and dad, learning to be loving and caring as well. Lois and Charlie’s children have been and will continue to be, very close knit.

Lois was cremated and will be placed with Charles in a National Veteran’s Cemetery in Kent Washington. Lois was loved by many and will be greatly missed. She lived a great part of her life in Owens Valley, California.

At the request of Lois, there will be no memorial service, however, if you were thinking of sending flowers, her children would like to suggest that you put that money towards your local Disabled American Veterans, one of Lois’ favorite charities, in her name.
