      Obituary:
      Lois A. Ennis (Anderson) was born March 9th, 1931 and died at her daughter Rhonda's home, in Oregon City, September 7th 2011 after battling cancer for four years.
      She was delivered by a mid-wife in a home located in the Delena area. Lois was the youngest of six children of Edith E. and Clint W. Anderson, she joined two brothers, Donald and Lowell Anderson and three sisters, Dorothy Anderson (Olson), Neva Anderson (Carlton), and Norma Anderson (Nelson). Her childhood was spent on a farm in the Mayger-Downing area of Clatskanie, she still referred to this area in conversation as "down home." She moved to Portland to begin work at Montgomery Wards just after graduating from Clatskanie High School in 1949. It was at Montgomery Wards that she met Bruce Geller, and the couple were married in January of 1955 and settled in Gresham to start their family of four children; Rodney, Lynell, Lyle and Rhonda. Bruce and Lois were divorced after the kids were mostly grown, several years later she met and married Bill Ennis. Lois and Bill were relocated through his employer to the Chicago area in which they lived until Bill's retirement at which time they moved back to Gresham to be closer to family and friends.
      Lois was known for her sense of humor, inviting smile, quick wit, the stories she shared, the silly, silly jokes she told, and the care she took in her appearance. She was able to laugh at herself, and had the rare gift to see the world and the people within it through rose colored glasses. Once she was diagnosed with cancer and knew she would be losing her hair she went to a wig shop, she found two that she liked and upon returning home she put one on because she said to herself, "this is my life now I'd better adjust." She then went into town and shopped all afternoon, when she returned home as she passed a mirror, she said something caught her eye, when she went to the bathroom to check the back of her new hair in the mirror she realized she had failed to remove the price tag, she said she had not had such a good laugh in months.
      Her hobbies included golfing, painting, traveling, community theater, writing poems, and spending time with friends and family. She had a dream of owning a beach house along the Oregon Coast and so several years ago she bought a condo in Lincoln City so she, her family and friends had a place to gather, unwind and recenter before returning to their daily lives. She felt a perfect day would entail bringing together family, friends and food together with that view. She was an inspiration to those who knew her not only during the good times but also in her difficult years in her fight with cancer, as her son Lyle said, "she showed us what it means to die with dignity."
      Lois was preceded in death by her sister Dorothy Olson and her brother Donald Anderson, her first husband Bruce Geller and second husband Bill Ennis. She leaves behind her children, Rod Geller, Rhonda and Lambert Bourgo, Lynn and Steve Randolph, Lyle Geller and step children Greg and Shannon Ennis, Sean Ennis, Mary Ennis, Tim and Lourdes Ennis, Cathi (Ennis) and Keith Hedden, Bill and Brenda Ennis, 8 grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews as well as her special friend Ed Murphy who stayed by her side and even as her strength was waning her eyes would light up when Ed entered the room.
      The service for Lois was held at Gateway Little Chapel of the Chimes in Gresham on September 12th.
