Lois Iona Taylor Imbler, age 96, beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, and great grandmother, passed away on Monday, March 20, 2023 at Brookdale Park Place in Spokane Washington. Lois was born on December 27, 1926 to goodly parents, Ernest Homer Taylor and Vera Rue McLaren in Perkins, Oklahoma. Her family moved briefly to Texas, and then as refugees of the Great Dust Bowl of the 1930's, they moved to California, settling in the San Fernando Valley. Lois graduated from Canoga Park High School in 1944.
Lois was married to her eternal sweetheart, Everett Rollin Imbler, on August 25, 1948 in Canoga Park, California. They later made their home in Duarte, California where they raised their six children. Two of her greatest joys were music in the home and family reunions, which she was often the driving force to pull together.
After joining The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Lois and Everett were sealed for time and all eternity in the Los Angeles Temple on April 19, 1969. She continued as a faithful member of the Church through her life. Lois was primarily a wife and a mother until her children were teenagers. She then had several jobs, including working in the daycare/nursery for the bowling alley across the street from their home, and for several years at the Fedco store in Pasadena. After her husband retired, they relocated to the Seattle area. In 1991, they moved to Omak, Washington, then subsequently to Woodruff, Utah in 1997. Lois and Everett’s final move was to Sandy, Utah in October 2000.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Everett; her seven siblings, Gerald, Violet, Mansell Ernest, Jack, Ernest Jr., Billy Stewart, and Francis Elizabeth. Lois is survived by her children: David Imbler (Chris), Lynnwood WA, Donald Imbler (Laura), Gardnerville NV, Cheryl Lynn (Richard), Moreno Valley, CA, Michael Imbler (Kathleen) Sandy, UT, Richard Imbler (Susan), Spokane WA, Anita Pittman (Kim), Delta, UT, 19 grandchildren, and 48 great grandchildren. Lois was greatly loved, and her memory will live on in all of our hearts.
The family would like to express their gratitude to Mike and Kathleen Imbler for Mom’s care in Sandy, UT after Dad’s passing, and to Richard & Susan Imbler after she moved to Spokane, Washington a few years ago. Thank you! A special thank you for the help and care she received while living at Brookdale Park Place in Spokane, WA.
