Obituary

Lois Sutcliffe
1954 - 2020

Lois moved to her Eternal Home on Friday, February 14, 2020.

Lois was born in 1954 as a surprise package to Jake and Mildred, both past child bearing years. Jake passed away four years later when his leukemia returned, so Mildred courageously and adeptly raised their daughter using her quiet and gentle spirit.

Lois took piano lessons in her early years. As the need arose for musical accompaniment at the church, Lois was pressed into the position of accompanying the children's choir while still in grade school, and then the junior choir, as well as a teen choir group when in high school.

She graduated from Millar Collage of the Bible, completed her teacher's certificate from Regina University, and took her first job in a two-teacher school in Aneroid, loving making her home in this small town. She loved being a part of a square dance club, and making new friends. Her teaching career also took her to West Africa and Montana. She eventually returned home to Estevan to care for her mom, all the while spending countless hours volunteering in many capacities, serving God and others, enriching countless lives.

Lois felt she lived a God-blessed life, and so when she received a terminal cancer diagnosis, immediately labeled it her God journey, expecting God to teach her lessons in ways that He could not otherwise teach her, and thus saw it in a positive light, seeing many blessings come as a result of the diagnosis, always wanting God to be glorified through her life.

The Funeral Service was held on Friday, February 21, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at the Estevan Gospel Chapel, Estevan, Sask. Interment followed at Souris Valley Memorial Gardens. The Active Pallbearers were Garnet Wilhelm, Dave Clearwater, Kory Clearwater, Perry Mackenzie, Ladan Mackenzie and Justin Nixon. The Honourary Pallbearers were Lois' cousins, Garry Tedford and Carol Streelasky.

If friends so desire, donations in memory of Lois may be made to Choose Life Ministry, Box 176, Glen Ewen, Sask., S0C 1C0 or online at chooselifeministry.ca

Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Dustin Hall - Hall Funeral Services, Estevan.

Lois was a precious and gracious friend. We met as students at Millar College of the Bible and remained in contact ever since. Her phone calls and prayers for us will be very missed. The tricks she played on us will never be forgotten. She had a fun-loving spirit and was an encouragement to everyone - always ready to lend a helping hand.
May the following poem be a comfort to us all:
The Homeland
Think of stepping on shore, and finding it heaven.
Of taking hold of a hand, and finding it God's Hand.
Of breathing a new air, and finding it celestial air.
Of feeling invigorated, and finding it immortality.
Of stepping from storm and tempest, to an unbroken calm.
Of waking up, and finding yourself Home!
Hallelujah!

John 3:16 invites us all to join Lois in heaven some day. She would be thrilled if we all would join her there.

We were enriched and blessed by Lois as we were working with her at Dallas Valley Ranch Camp last summer. She was funny but always had a spiritual lesson for us everyday. She also said that Where there's a pulse, there's a purpose. What a lady! She is now enjoying her Lord's presence and we shall meet again.

Lois was one of the most "others" centred people I've met ... always serving others, going beyond the call of duty. Great memories of Lois and her mom as part of Estevan Gospel Chapel, and she was a good friend to my mom during her years at Millar College of the Bible, and later while teaching at nearby Aneroid.
