Lois came into this world on January 30, 1933. She came during a huge blizzard in Guymon, OK. Her proud parents, Milton and Esta Calhoon delivered her at home, on a farm with only a neighbor and her dad to catch her entering. Lois was loved by many and many loved her. Her heart was the size of the universe. But her main love was the love she had for her Savior.
During her time on this earth, she embraced many families helping with the birth of newborns at Worley and Highland General Hospital in Pampa for nearly 10 years. She then decided to go back to high school to get her diploma. In 1965, she graduated from Pampa High School with her nieces and nephew. Lois then went to work for the Marie Foundation for 17 years until they closed. Lois having so much love for children began working for Pampa Independent School as a bus driver for 9 years before retiring.
But Lois held another love even closer to her heart. Lois fell in love with Robert Cecil Dittmeyer when she was only 20 years old. This love lasted for 31 years and now into eternity. Robert was the love of her life, and she was the apple of his eyes. This was the kind of love that sees couples through all the ups and downs and one that will find each other in heaven again.
Lois had many interests in life. She enjoyed camping, quilting, crocheting, making Afghans, cake decoration, oil painting, and many more hobbies. She would often create a masterpiece and offer it to a family member or a friend. These people now hold priceless treasures, and they are ranked amongst the finest collectors in the world. If you own a Lois Dittmeyer creation, hold it near and dear as it is part of a limited collection now. She loved to travel, going to places like Asia, Singapore, Israel and every state in the USA. Lois and her three sisters each year took a trip somewhere, as family we all called this the sister act. The sisters would make all matching outfits and would get into many shenanigans.
Lois was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Robert Dittmeyer; two sisters, Dorothy Lee Frazier and Sharon Louise Thomas; a grandson, Christopher Lee Brawley; a by a great-grandson, Jessie Lee Corey.
She is survived by her son, Larry Brawley of Pampa; a sister, Jean Hoppe of Ada, Oklahoma; she leaves her legacy to her grandson, Gary Brawley and many great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Lois an amazing woman has now graduated from her earthy duties as of January 23, 2022, and as expected with great honors into heaven, for her work was done here. Congratulations, Lois Calhoon Dittmeyer! Heaven is incredibly lucky to have you, but you will be missed here by those that love you.
