Lois Jeanne Cannon, 77 of Morgan Township, passed away Sunday, October 16, 2022. She was born July 18, 1945, in Valparaiso to John and Madge (Howard) Wellsand, Sr. Lois graduated from Morgan Township High School in 1963, and made her career as a self-employed antique dealer for many years. She was also a member of New Hope Church in Malden. Lois was an avid collector and admirer of Fenton Glassware, owning over 1,000 pieces in her lifetime. In her younger years, Lois enjoyed going to garage sales and traveling with her husband. But her greatest joy in life came from her family.

Michelle, So sorry to hear your mother has passed. Its been years! Wishing you and your family peace and comfort in the days ahead. -Casey Cannon
So very sorry for your loss. I met your mom many years ago in the mid to late 1970's through her cousin Carol Ann. Lois was so happy, funny and full of life. I would mostly meet her when I was with Carol and viewing craft shows in the Valparaiso area. Sometimes we'd all have lunch at the craft fair. Lois and Carol would always be teasing each other. I saw her house after it was built, and it was so beautiful. Lois was such a beautiful and caring lady and I am so glad I came to know her. God bless and keep her. May God bring blessings of comfort to your family. -Jo Ann Hayworth
My Deepest Sympathies hugs to you and you're Family love and Miss you. -Ron Witkowski
My heartfelt sympathy Michelle and family. I did not know your mom had died until now, looking at the online obituaries. Such a special gal! -Peg Raderstorf
