27 Sep Obit: Death of Lois Magnus
Lois Magnus, wife of retired pastor and former superintendent Martin Magnus, passed away at 5:12 am on Thursday, September 27, 2012, two days shy of age 83.
Just six days ago we reported that Lois had been diagnosed with cancer and given three months to live.
Lois was a woman of strong faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and lived in relationship with him every day. She, along with her devoted husband of 56 years, Martin, had open hearts and an open home, and many thought of her as a second mom or a spiritual mom. Lois was a prayer warrior who supported many pastors, ministries and missionaries, some for over 50 years.
After three weeks of hospitalization, Lois couldn’t wait to get to heaven and leave behind the limitations of a failing body. Lois was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by her children, Brian (and wife Lynette), Cindy (and husband Scott), Randy (and wife Debb), Greg (and wife Shelley) and Tim, her grandchildren, brothers and sisters, many nieces, nephews and other family members, her loving church family at Stanley Park Community (United Brethren) Church, as well as neighbours and friends.
Visitation: 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm Sunday, September 30, 2012.
Visitation location: Stanley Park Community Church, 9 Dreger Ave., Kitchener, Ontario (off Ottawa, east of the expressway).
Funeral: Monday, October 1, at 1:30 pm (viewing one hour beforehand).
Funeral location: Kitchener Gospel Temple, 9 Conway Dr., Kitchener, Ontario (off River Road).
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Stanley Park Church or a mission or ministry of your choice.
Two sons are currently United Brethren ministers: Brian Magnus, bishop of the United Brethren Church in Canada and pastor of the Parkwood Gardens church (Guelph, Ontario); and Randy Magnus, pastor of Roseville UB church (Ayr, Ontario).
