My heart hurts as I write this small tribute to a dear lady whom I knew for only a year through the Tidewater Arts and Antiques Association. When I suddenly lost my job at CHCS after a wonderful, 40-year career as an English teacher in Virginia Beach, I was devastated. Months later, I hesitantly wandered into a TAAA meeting where I met Lois. She and I talked each month about the teaching profession, travel, art, and new adventures in life still waiting for me to experience and to enjoy. Every month she called to remind me of our upcoming meeting. How I loved hearing from her! Mrs. Linsly--my new and dear friend Lois--inspired me to start living again. I will remember and honor her wisdom, her example, and her special kindness to me all the rest of my days.

My mother and I would like to offer our condolences to the Linsly family. Dad and I worked for Mr. and Mrs. Linsly for many years and we always appreciated their business. Dad passed in 2007, but I remember well the respect he had for both Lois and Jared. She was a very kind lady.

The Myrtle Book Group will not be the same without our steadfast and witty Lois. We have enjoyed and shared so many good books together..even some long ones... to Lois' dismay. My heart is overwhelmingly saddened, and I will miss Lois' friendship and camaraderie more than I can express. Jean B.
