BLUEFIELD, Va. — Florence Lois Deaumer Taylor, age 104, of East View Adult Care, Bluefield, VA, formerly of 319 College Ave., Bluefield, WV traveled her last walk to her Heavenly home Friday, March 28, 2014, of natural causes.

Lois was born February 26, 1910, in Logan, WV to Theodore Oscar “T.O.” Deaumer, Sr. and Henrietta Black Deaumer. She graduated from Beaver High School and Bluefield Business College; was a supervisor for and retired from Celanese Corp. in Narrows, VA. Lois lived a full life of many walks up East River Mountain with her father; caring for her 3 younger siblings, husband and sister; growing and sharing vegetables; handwork and quilting; crossword puzzles and reading; walking her dogs and gardening in her flower beds on College Ave. Her flowers were a treat to all who drove past them, blooming from Spring to Fall. Though feisty and a strong personality, Lois always had a smile and a kind “hello” to everyone! Lois was of the Christian faith.
