Lois B. Skaggs (sponsored obituary)

Lois B. Skaggs, our beloved Mother and friend, died with her children by her side on

September 22, 2010 in Walnut Creek, CA.

Lois was born October 27, 1930 to Twohy and Rita Brusstar in Oakland, CA.

Lois had one brother Cal and sister-in-law Ruth Brusstar. She was married to Milton B. Skaggs who preceded her in death. Of her six children, five are remaining. Sons John and Cal Knox, daughters, Barbara (Ed) Gates, Nancy (Paul) Vegnani and Lindsay (Dick) Bird. Grandchildren Ed, Jon, Dawn, DJ, Alyssa, Michael, Brandon, Brooke and her beloved granddog, Maddi.

Lois lived most of her adult life in and around the Grass Valley area. She only in the last year moved to Walnut Creek to live right next door to her loving son Cal.

Mom had many talents, far too many to list. Her devotion to the Episcopal church and God

immeasurable. She made our house a home. In the 70s, with four children still at home, Mom went to Yuba College and got her AA Degree, We were all so proud to watch her graduate.

We will miss you Mom. Thank you for everything you did for all of us.

Lois’s memorial will be held October 23, 2010 at 2pm at St. Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Grass Valley. A gathering of friends and family will follow in the parish hall.

Many thanks to Hospice of the East Bay for their kind treatment of our Mother
