Fare Well, Lois Rossten

Went to Lois Rossten's memorial service in Huntington Beach today.
It was held at a Lutheran church, of which she had been a member for many years, possibly soon after it was founded.
The chapel was filled to capacity with friends, including many PSSC members of which I was probably the youngest.
Lois and her husband had been married less than a month short of 65 years.
She was 85.
I met her numerous times, and the light of her smile outshone the sun . . .
Gateway to Whittier! Classic Sunset Garden Zone 23.
Air-drained coastal slope, 20 miles inland, almost entirely coastal influence. Slightly psycho Mediterranean climate.

No record of a hurricane passing over this island (yet!).
Summer maximum rainfall - variable averaging 900-1150mm (35-45") - Perfect drainage on black volcanic rocky soil.

I will never forget Lois, how sweet she was and how lucky I was to have her for a friend for so long.
