Lois Elizabeth Bristol passed away in her home in Noblesville Indiana with her family at her side on December 28, 2020 from complications of Alzheimer’s disease. She was born on July 29, 1935 in Syracuse, New York to Herbert and Margaret Windver.
With her family, Lois moved to Royal Oak Michigan in her junior high school years and was graduated from Royal Oak High School in 1953. During her senior year in high school, she was president of the Girls Literary Club, and invited her future husband to the Sadie Hawkins Day dance, which was the beginning of a 67-year romance. They were married between their sophomore and junior years at the University of Michigan. Lois completed her degree in elementary education and spent more than twenty years fondly practicing her skills as a kindergarten teacher, loving every child who was fortunate to have her as a teacher. As a hobby, Lois was involved in singing in a Sweet Adelines quartet, winning regional competition in 1969, and competing in international competition four years following.
Lois loved to travel, and with Charlie covered quite an impressive landscape, having visited all 50 states, all seven continents, and more than 79 foreign countries. She is famous for saying, when travelling, "Just give me the three M's, money, map and a mouth, and I will be fine".
She is survived by her husband, Charlie “Chuck” Bristol, with whom she recently celebrated 65 years of marriage; their two children, Deborah (Brett) Hill, and Andrew (Tracy) Bristol; grandchildren, Ryan (Michelle) Hill, Kristin (Brent) Fazekas, Adam Bristol, and Lauren (Logan) Phillips; followed by seven great-grandchildren, Kameryn, Kara, Emily and Lucy Fazekas, and Charlie, George and Lylah Hill.
Because of the Covid 19 pandemic, no funeral service will be held. The Bristol family has entrusted the care of Lois to Randall & Roberts Funeral Homes.
