The family of Lois Marjorie Acton (Lang) sadly announces her passing, on Friday, June 28, 2024 in Edmonton, Alberta.


Lois was predeceased by her husband William Acton, and her daughters-in-law, Lynne Charter and Erica Johannsen. She was also predeceased by her five siblings: Jack, Garn, Irene, Mabel and Ruby.


Lois was born in 1924 in Ridgedale, Saskatchewan and lived most of her adult life in Provost, Alberta.


Lois was a deeply loved wife, mother, mother-in law, grandma, great grandma, aunt and friend. Her passing is a sad loss for her four sons and their families: Phil; Jim (Doreen); Bob (Therese); Brian; her five grandchildren: David; Jeff; Kim; Joyce; Christine, and 10 great grandchildren.


She played an active role in the development of the Provost community. She had a founding role in establishing, operating, and maintaining the Provost Library where she catalogued and created a directory for the Provost Cemetery. She also volunteered at the nursing home for a number of years.


Lois loved spending time with her family at Dillberry Lake in the summer, Thanksgiving and Christmas. When not with family or friends she could be found doing needle point or painting. Over the years she did many beautiful pieces of art which are enjoyed by her children and grandchildren.


A private family service will be held at the Provost Cemetery.
