On August 9th, 2020, Lois (86) passed away peacefully surrounded by her five loving children.

Lois was a remarkable women who will be lovingly remembered by her children, Virginia (Eric) Olson, Christine (Ernie) Provencher, Kelly (Ray) MacIntyre, Kathy (Larry) Geertsen, Jim (Kim) Ennis; grandchildren, Robert (Hilary), Becky (Paco), Lena (Jared), Colleen (Amy), Nick (Ashley), Marc (Jamie), Jordan (Marissa), Kristin (Shawn), Katerina, Larissa, Mason (Clarity), Josh (Toria), Madison (Taylor), Abbey; great-grandchildren, Ruby, Kenny, Matteo, Sofia, Virginia, Annie, Will, Maverick, Stevie, Beau, Heidi, Kaeson, Lakelynn, Lola, Olive, Sullivan, Harvey, Monroe, Goldie, Ace and Perri. She will also be missed by her brother's and sister's family in Ontario. She was predeceased by her husband, James Ennis; her parents, William and Helena Boles; her brother (his spouse), Melvin (Amie) Boles and their son, Randy; and her sister (her spouse), Agnes (Sy) Muir.

Lois was born in Embro, Ontario on February 6, 1934. She attended high school in Woodstock, Ontario and this is where she met the love her of her life, James Ennis. They were married on October 31, 1953, and in 1959 while James was working for La France Textiles he was opening a new branch which sent them and their two daughters to Edmonton, Alberta. After thirteen years, and three more children, James and Lois decided to start J. Ennis Fabrics out of their basement- garage in Sherwood Park, Alberta. The company is now on its 48th year and is still a family owned company, which Lois was very proud of.

Her legacy was the fifty six family members, who will miss her dearly every day. They always knew they would have a big family and wanted to make sure at the end of the day there was always a place to gather. So today, to her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and generations to come, we know her legacy as the family lake property.

If you were lucky enough to know Lois you understand that by a simple "I Love You" or even just a hug by her, a million words were spoken. She had a way to make you understand exactly how she was feeling without saying anything at all. She was the best mom, grandma, great-grandma and still is the ultimate matriarch.

Cremation and private interment will take place in Glenwood Memorial Gardens in Sherwood Park, AB. Donations may be made to the Win House in Sherwood Park (https://winhouse.org/)Please leave condolences at www.glenwoodmemorial.com
