Lois Estelle Painter Peters
It is with great sadness that the family of Lois Estelle Painter Peters announces her passing on December 2, 2019, at the age of 87 years.
Lois was born to Clarence “Bo” Gordon and Grace (Adams) Painter in Lamesa. She graduated from Klondike High School in 1948. Lois was involved in the Eastern Star, Big Spring, early in life and was a lifetime member.
Lois married and raised two wonderful children, Dewayne and Patty, whom she showed great strength and compassion. For over a decade, she owned and operated The Spectacle Center in Midland with her son. Her adept business skills and social graces led her to live adventures.
Lois was active with the Western Swing Music Society of the Southwest, showing Arabian horses, and RVing across the U.S. Lois filled the room with her big personality and had a voice that could carry. She fluently read Western novels and was herself a stubborn and witty west Texas character. Lois deeply impacted family and friends with her unique attitude and strong desire to live full. Her light will always shine bright and she will be forever missed.
Lois will be forever remembered by her family. Two children, David Dewayne Peters and Patricia Hensley. Two grandchildren, Summer and grandson-in -law Matt Barnes of Farmers Branch and Melissa Austin. Two great-grandchildren, Danica Probst of NY and Blake Barnes of Farmers Branch.
