    Lois L. Rockwell was born on April 20, 1935 to John Allen and Bertha Mae Brown in Braggs Okla. She devoted her life to taking care of her family.

    She was a splendid cook and always made sure if you visited her home that you were fed. No one ever left hungry.

    Lois loved to visit the La Sal Mountains for short fishing trips; the catch of the day was cooked at the lake, because, “they were best that way.”

    She also had a love for the desert; her words were “I love the desert because you can see forever.”

    Lois passed away on June 3, 2009. At her request, graveside service and burial was held at Sunset Memorial Cemetery on June 13.

    Lois is survived by her daughters, Janaffer Johnston, Sue Camberlango, and Rhonda MacAdams; brother, Cliff Brown; sister, Ada Brown; special niece, Marsha Swann Gist; and grandchildren, Stacy Osborn, Alisa Morgan, Shenna Johnston, Jay Camberlango, Matt Camberlango, Jenna Camberlango, Jeri MacAdams, Jessica Eyman; great- grandchildren Tyler and Jaran Oates, Lexie and Brooklynn Camberlango and Connor Gough.

    She is also survived by her extended family, sons-in-law, Vinnie Camberlango and Tony Eyman; nephews, Doug, Michael and Keith Brown; nieces, Terri Silva and Patty Miller; great-grandchildren, Davan and Bodie Morgan, Timberly and Tyier Gough; and grandchildren, Curtis Swann and Tyson Rockwell.

    “Words cannot describe her Greatness” She will be forever loved and missed.
