Lois Ekloff, July 16 2008


On July 12, 1923, Lois (Messer) Ekloff of Snohomish, Washington entered this world. On July 16, 2008, The Lord granted her last prayer; that was for Him to take her home. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Bob Ekloff in 2000.
She had 2 sons and 1 daughter, her only brother, Bob Messer, numerous grand-children, great-grand-children, and a loving extended family at both Midnight Cry Community Fellowship and 1st Congregational Church of Maltby.
She left this world as “HIS faithful servant”.
In her healthy years she was a very busy lady: She was involved in the Cub Scouts, a 4-H leader and camp cook, active in the Horseshoe Grange, the City of Snohomish’s Sec/Tres during the 100 yr. celebration. She was an Honorary Support team member of the Christian Crusader Ministry for 20 yrs and active in Campers for Christ. She was written up in the “Who’s Who” in Washington State.
Special thanks to Dale and Stephanie Ekloff, hospice, and the staff at the Cancer Treatment Center.

    I wish to thank the Ekloff family for lending me their Mom. There was a lonely place in my heart before I met Lois. She and Pop loved me like a daughter. They bragged about me when I did good and gave me wise counsel when I didn’t. I am encourage to continue the race that Jesus has set before me, knowing that Mama is cheering me on from heavan. Her race is over… and I know as this humble woman ascended those golden stairs… her loved ones ran to meet her and the angels stood and applauded.
    With Great Love,
    Sister Shirley
