Lois Ann Hamilton Tourangeau, 81, surrounded by family at her home in North Carolina, found rest from pneumonia on Feb. 2, 2020.

Lois was born June 16, 1938, in Nashua, N.H., and grew up in Berlin, N.H. She was predeceased by her parents, Ruth Stahl and John Hamilton, and her sister, Eleanor.

She graduated Berlin High School and the University of Maine, Orono; married David Tourangeau; raised her family in Cape Elizabeth, Maine; divorced; became fiercely independent; and lived in Utah, Florida, New Hampshire, nd North Carolina.

Lois touched lives by being a mother, an entrepreneur, a Girl Scout troop leader and council president, a founding mother/first president of Bedford Friendship Quilt Group and by providing endless support and constant laughter through her irreverent humor.

Lois is survived by three loving children, Lisa Wojenski and her husband Joe, of Shallotte, N.C.; Matthew, of Cape Elizabeth, Maine; and Mark and his wife Lori, of Park City, Utah. She adored and will be forever missed by her grandchildren, Jess, Jake, Celeste, Gabriel, Nate and Olivia; her wonderful nieces, cousins and countless friends.

A Celebration of Life is planned for June in New Hampshire. In lieu of flowers, please donate in her honor to your favorite organization (excluding, per Lois, the incumbent); or perform a random act of kindness.

Online condolences may be made at shallottefunerals.com, White Funeral and Cremation Service, Shallotte, N.C.
