Her funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, November 29, 2019, at Holly Springs Free Will Baptist Church, officiated by Rev. Mitchell Parker. Interment will follow at Amariah Garner Cemetery.
Lois was a faithful member of Holly Springs Free Will Baptist Church where she attended church for approximately 70 years. During that time, she invested in the lives of numerous children as she taught Sunday School for over 50 years. She was honored to teach generations of families the truth of God’s word. Lois also enjoyed singing in the choir and being the President of the Ladies Auxiliary as well as other activities that she participated in. If you didn’t know Lois from church, then you might know her as the “Avon Lady”. She had a career of 40 years sharing the Avon products with the community. She also did catering on the side and was known for her amazing cooking and her mouth watering yeast rolls. In her free time, she loved to do yard and garden work, anything that involved “playing in the dirt”.
She is survived by her daughter, Janet Lee and husband James of Newport; grandchildren, David Garner and wife Gwen and Chris Garner and wife Holly; and great-grandchildren, C.J. Garner, Bryan Garner and Jonathan Garner.
She was preceded in death by her husband, George Bryan Sr.; sons, George Bryan Jr. and Joey Bryan; parents, Claude and Mamie Murdoch; sister, Ann Bryan; and brothers, Claude Murdoch Jr. and Clarence Murdoch.
The family will receive friends from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. on Friday, November 29, 2019, at Holly Springs Free Will Baptist Church.
