    Lois was born September 8, 1928, in Salt Lake City, Utah to David Ruxton Gerrard and Atha Beasley. Lois graduated from West High School, attended LDS Business College, and began working at Montgomery Ward where she met Grant Mabey. They were married on June 9, 1949. Marriage later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple.
    Lois was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where she served in many positions including Young Women’s President and Relief Society President.
    Lois spent many years of her life working as her husband’s assistant in their office at the JC Penney Building in Salt Lake. During the eight years Grant served on the Salt Lake City Council, Lois was always there to help carry the load. Grant and Lois worked as a team, providing endless hours of service to church, community and family. They were rarely seen apart. But the most important thing to them, in spite of all of their accomplishments, was their family.
    Lois left us on March 20, 2021, to join her husband Grant and other loved ones who have gone on before. She is survived by her daughter Paulla (Brinton) Webb, sons Brad (Terry), Todd (Sherri), twelve grandchildren, and many great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other loved ones.
    Lois was preceded in death by her husband Grant, parents, brothers Elvin and Ray, sisters Mildred Watchorn Million and Betty Gerrard, who died as an infant. Lois will truly be missed by all.
    Funeral services will be held Saturday, March 27, 11:30 am, at the Bluffdale Utah South Stake Center, 15429 Iron Horse Blvd, with a viewing prior starting at 10:00 am.

    Dear Paula, and family, We are truly sorry to read of your mom's passing and offer our most sincere condolences. She was a wonderful lady! We remember her kindness and service. We love you mom and your dad! They have left such an amazing legacy. We just now found out about her passing. We just happened to look under Larkin for someone else's obituary, and then found Lois'. Regretfully, neither one of us can attend the funeral, but you will all be in our prayers. May Heavenly Father bless you.
