Lois was born October 10, 1956, in Chicago, Illinois, and was the daughter of Ernest Byrd and Dorothy (Sellers) Byrd.
She graduated from Phillips High School, class of 1976, in Chicago, Illinois. Lois married her high school sweetheart Patrick Kyles on May 20, 1977, whom she met while in 8th grade. They remained married for 44 years and 364 days, until the day Lois was called home just one day shy of their 45th wedding anniversary.
Lois loved traveling, especially to Las Vegas, where she and Patrick celebrated their anniversary every year. Lois loved going on long road trips with Patrick and enjoyed seeing new things and enjoying the simple things in life. When home, she loved watching TV or movies (especially crime shows and horror movies), enjoying time with her beloved pets, going for morning walks, and simply being with family.
Lois was a devoted military spouse and loving mother who was also beloved by those who knew her. She worked tirelessly serving soldiers and veterans throughout her nearly twenty-year career with the Army & Air Force Exchange Services (AAFES).
She is survived by husband Patrick Kyles of Junction City, Kansas; daughter Dorothy (Kyles) Stephens of Huntsville, Alabama; daughter Trish Kyles of Kyle, Texas; son Patrick Kyles Jr. of Junction City, Kansas; and sister Irene Foster of Lancaster, California.
Lois is preceded in death by her parents Ernest Byrd and Dorothy Byrd; two brothers, Ernest “Junior” Byrd Jr and William Curtis Byrd; and two sisters, Diana Byrd and Debbie Bailey.
We all loved Lois, but God loved her best.
