Lois Moody

September 5, 1937 — February 29, 2024

Cheyenne

Lois Jean Moody, 86, of Cheyenne, Wyoming, passed away Thursday, February 29, 2024, at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center surrounded by her children.

 Lois was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, on September 5, 1937, to Phillip and Maxine Eddy. She moved to Omaha in 1951 and graduated from North High School in 1955. Lois met the love of her life, Richard Moody, while attending a high school dance party.   They were married on December 28, 1956, in Omaha and enjoyed a loving marriage for over 60 years before his passing in 2017. 

 Lois worked outside the home for a short time before starting her family.  She worked in Omaha at Kuiney’s Bakery, Associated Retailers Credit Bureau and Rapid Printing. She was a loving homemaker and mother during the early years of her adult life.

In 1973, the family moved to Cheyenne when her husband accepted the position of Pressroom Superintendent for the Wyoming Tribune Eagle.   Once her children started graduating from high school, she operated a day care center in her home for over 20 years.   She enjoyed babies and young children. When she and her husband retired in 1997, they spent the winters at Tropic Star Resort in Pharr, Texas, enjoying the warm weather and time with many friends. 

 Lois had a love of baking and sewing. As a young mother, she sewed clothes for her children and always had cookies or brownies waiting when the kids came home from school.  In her retirement years, she made special quilts for all her children and grandchildren.  One of the joys she had was making pound puppies.  Over the years she has donated hundreds of pound puppies to the Toys for Tots program at Christmas.  In recent years, she also sewed a few baby quilt tops for the Sewing Center of Cheyenne for donation.

 Lois was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

 Lois and Dick have been Presbyterians since moving to Cheyenne, attending Highlands United Presbyterian Church for 40 years and then transferring to First Presbyterian Church in 2015.

 Lois was a sweet, gentle and loving person with a beautiful smile and soul.  She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. 

 Lois was preceded in death by her father in 1987, mother in 1992, her loving husband Richard Moody in December of 2017, and her step-grandchild Eric Hankins.  She is survived by her brother, Phillip James (PJ) (Kathy) Eddy; sons, Rick (Cathy) Moody, Scott Moody and Jim Moody; daughter, Jean (Donald) Cole; grandsons, Noah Moody and Jerimiah Moody.   Also, many step-grandchildren and step-great grandchildren.

 A funeral service will be held on Saturday, March 16, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. at the Lakeview Chapel at Schrader, Aragon and Jacoby Funeral Home. A reception will immediately follow at the Schrader Reception Center.  A private family burial will occur at a later date.
