Lois Marie Kellam Pritchett

REIDSVILLE - Mrs. Lois Marie Kellam Pritchett departed this life on Saturday afternoon, June 27, 2009 at Annie Penn Memorial Hospital.

Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, July 1, 2009 at 3:00 p.m. at Galilee Holiness Church with Pastor Bernard Florence serving as Eulogist. Burial will be held in Greenview Cemetery.

Lois Marie Kellam Pritchett was born in Reidsville, North Carolina on August 3, 1937. She is the daughter of the late Jessie and Roxie Kellam.

Lois was united in Holy Matrimony to Paul Lloyd Pritchett, Sr. in Reidsville, North Carolina on November 7, 1954. This union was blessed with one son, Paul Pritchett, Jr. Paul, preceded Lois in death two years ago.

Lois completed her education at Booker T. Washington High School. She was a member of the girl’s basketball team. This was the beginning of Lois’ life long interest in sports. We all knew the pleasure she received from watching basketball and tennis.
Lois worked for many years at Burlington Industries and in 1972 she opened Pritchett’s Family Care Home. Because of Lois’ passion for serving people, her business received only “excellent” ratings during its operation. No one had better meals than Lois’ clients.
Lois was a loving wife and mother. She devoted her life to her family, always there to listen and offer encouragement.
Lois was not one for house visits but we knew we could always call morning, noon or night— her phone was never busy and her door was always open. Her love of life was evident through her beautiful smile — not only was she a beautiful lady in her appearance; her inner beauty, is what we will remember most. Lois had a “Heart of Gold.” And most importantly was Lois’ love of the Lord. She often said, “without the Lord’s help, she would not have made it so far”. She always believed that God would make a way.

Lois was the youngest of nine children, Dolphus, John, Bertha Mae, Nettie, John Will, Jessie II (June), James Thomas (Tom Cat), Sylvester, and Joe Frank (Doll Baby).

Surviving relatives whose lives were enriched by Lois’ legacy include: son, Paul Pritchett, Jr. & wife, LaVerne of Reidsville, NC; sister, Nettie S. Desmond of the home; two grandchildren, LaTasha Pritchett and Derice Pritchett & wife, Toya of Greensboro, NC; two great grandchildren, Aprice Pritchett and Jeremiah Pritchett; two sisters-in-law, Idella Kellam and Ruth Kellum both of Reidsville, NC.; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

The family is receiving friends at 201 Roanoke Street in Reidsville, NC.
