FC Daehler Mortuary
Lois Call Shope went to be with the Lord and her late loved ones on Sunday, November 12th 2023 at 8:48 pm surrounded by loved ones peacefully and comfortably at home. She is proceeded in death by her parents, Harold and Helen Call, sisters Virginia Sue Call, Sharon Pendry, & Tiny Dooley.
Lois was a former respiratory therapist and retired housekeeper to several families and businesses and built a friendship with those she who employed her. She took pride in her home and opened it up for her large gatherings with family and friends each holiday season to keep the family traditions going, passed down from her mother and late sister Tiny. She was the peace and protection for that family for many years. If she wasn't redecorating her house or changing the color again in her bathroom or kitchen for the 100th time, you could find her out in her yard making sure it was to her perfection. To find the definition of independence and strength, you will also find her picture next to those words in a dictionary. With her beautiful smile and waving hand to greet those coming and going, her infectious laugh will be remembered and heard by those she touched along the way. She was a never ending faithful woman to God. She was a devoted wife to Jim for 30 beautiful years. "Just a little bit and a whole lot more" forever ingrained and seeing her hold up her pointer finger and thumb to show him "just a lil bit" was the definition of true faithful undying profound love. To call her "Mother" is an understatement. There is no greater love than a mother's. The endless selflessness and support she had for her children and grandchildren and the morals and values taught along the way will always be cherished. She was a devoted sister from the strength of so many women through the years passed down generation after generation. There was nothing stronger than the bond she had with her siblings. Especially "little Charlotte". Charlotte was her main caregiver throughout her last months and the strength for her and the family during that difficult time.
Lois is survived by her husband, James Shope, of 30 years, a son, Shawn (Missy) Tatman of West Portsmouth, a daughter, Brandi Tatman of Waverly, a late stepson, Shane Shope, and stepson Brandon (Teresa) Shope of Lucasville. She had (8) amazing grandchildren, Samantha Tatman, Ryan Tatman, Emily Shope, Grace Shope, Joshua (Audrey) Shope, Brooke Shope, Logan Shope, & Avery Shope. Making Christmas sugar cut out cookies was a family tradition that will be carried on for years to come. She is also survived by (5) siblings, Barb (Doug) Lewis of Grove City, Gary (The Late Mary) Call of Sciotoville, Charlotte Means of Wheelersburg, Kathy (Al) Taynor of Gahanna, and Ed Call of Rosemount.
A celebration of life gathering will be held Saturday November 25th, 2023, from 5pm-9pm at the Porter Township Community Center, 408 Bulwer Street, Wheelersburg, Ohio, 45694.
Family and friends are welcome to join in an evening of food, fellowship and remembrance.
I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing).
I fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) I want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true) and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart.
