Lois Ann High died Saturday, May 5, 2018. We, her friends, will remember her generous heart, her open door, her wry and mischievous sense of humor, her love for us. Following a long and successful career with the Veteran’s Administration, Lois retired to Lubbock to share her life with her beloved Joy Lambert, her partner and her friend. Before Joy’s death in 2013, they traveled widely, followed Lady Raider basketball, and played many rounds of golf. Lois remained a loyal Lady Raider fan, but her heart belonged to the Baylor Bears.
Lois was an active member of St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church; she served at St. Benedict’s Chapel, the Adult Day Activity Center, and at Wheelock Elementary School Teacher Appreciation Days. Lois’s love for animals was the energy behind funding and building St. Christopher’s pet memorial garden project. Upon completion, the memorial garden will be dedicated to the memory of Lois Ann High.
Services for Lois High will take place at 2:00 Sunday, May 20, 2018 at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church, 2807 42nd Street, Lubbock, Texas. In lieu of flowers, please consider a gift to St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church, St. Benedict’s Chapel, The Salvation Army, or an organization that promotes the wellbeing of animals.
