Sample and her husband Donte of Parksley; great-granddaughters, Abigail, Briana, Jazmin and Kaitlyn Zavala; father-in-law, Richard C.

In addition to her parents, Lois was predeceased by a brother, Brooks Mears, Jr.; a sister, Mary F. Allen; and sister-in-law, Bonnie Mears; and mother-in-law, Bonnie Huffman Turner.
