Lewiston – Lois G. Walton, 72, a resident of Turner, died suddenly on Sunday, March 8, at Central Maine Medical Center surrounded by her family.

She was born on July 18, 1936, in Livermore Falls, the daughter of Donat and Josephine (Maguire) Chicoine. She graduated from Livermore Falls High School, class of 1955. On Oct. 15, 1955, she married Robert Walton in Wayne. They were married 53 years.

She was a homemaker to her family and owned and operated Lois and Pat’s Store in North Turner for years. After the sale of the business, she continued to work there for another 15 years, having cooked an egg for almost everyone in Turner. Lois, along with her husband Bob, enjoyed following the sporting events of their children, grandchildren and all those she considered her grandchildren. She enjoyed bingo, Saturday night at the stock car races, and cooking her peanut butter fudge for everyone. Lois looked forward to her morning breakfast and social visits with her sister Patty at McDonalds.

She was an extremely giving person. She enjoyed meeting and entertaining the foreign exchange students visiting at the Maranacook School.
