On an impending visit, a grandson asked, “Is this the one who makes cookies?” Yes was the answer, which typified Grandma Haining’s open heart to an open house, love of family, graciousness and continuous hospitality.

Lois Faye Haining, born May 16, 1923, died of complications from a stroke in the presence of her loving family on June 4, 2012.

Lois, devoted wife of Roger who preceded her passing, loved to entertain groups of all kinds from a Russian imigrant family to a large group of church members for her famous clam chowder social.

Family gatherings at Thanksgiving and Christmas, backyard weddings and reunions during the summer were particularly joyous.

Lois had passions for music and good food, which have been passed on to her family. Her compassion for others was further demonstrated in her church prayer chain, initiating the weekly “Primetimers” potlucks and leading her chapter of the philanthropic Orthopedic Guild.

Underlying these activities was her faith in Jesus Christ. Lois was an active member of the Woodinville Community United Methodist Church (WCUMC), choir member and helped Roger conduct lay witness missions throughout North America and Europe.

Lois is survived by four children: David, Janis (husband, Frank Reno), Nancy (husband,  Alan Strand) and Colleen (husband, Kim Imper); four grandchildren: Michael (wife, Cassie Reno), Kelli Reno, Kimberly (husband, Scott Blackburn) and Kelli (husband, Tim Daniels); and four great grandchildren: Eva, Sammi, Christian and Connor.

A celebration of life was held at WCUMC on June 11.

Rememberances may be made to the good works of WCUMC.
