Lois Barlow Matthews went to be with the Lord November 19, 2016 at Poet's Walk Fredericksburg, VA at the age of 73.
Lois is survived by her husband, Owen Matthews and her two daughters, Amy Matthews Alodat and Elizabeth Matthews West. Her son, David Owen Matthews, preceded her in death as did her sister Phyllis Buchanan. Lois is also survived by her brother, Roger Barlow and four nieces; Teresa Carpenter, Shari Martin, Lisa Tacket and Melissa McMilan.
Lois and Owen met and began dating while at Hermitage high school in Richmond when she was 15. They married upon Owen's graduation from Va Tech and celebrated their 50th anniversary on July 1, 2016. Most of their years together were spent in Central Florida where Owen pursued a career and Lois enjoyed her role as wife and mother.
Lois and Owen attended St Paul's Presbyterian Church in Orlando.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00pm December 2 at St Pauls Presbyterian Church, 4917 Eli Street, Orlando, FL 32804. As was her wish, Lois' body was cremated.
