SYKES, Lois Arlene Passed away peacefully on January 24, 2018 in Santa Rosa, CA at the age of 83. She is preceded in death by her husband, Ronald W. Sykes; her parents, Eurie and Joseph Fogle, and her sister Mary Moore. She is survived by her daughters Christine and Julie Sykes, brothers William, John and Joseph Fogle, and beloved extended family. Lois grew up on her parents’ farm in the small community of Medina Township, Ohio. As a young woman, Lois worked for Trans World Airlines as a stewardess, a time that she loved and remembered fondly all her life. Based out of New York, she flew with TWA to international destinations such as Italy, Greece, Germany and France. After her career with the airlines, Lois married her husband Ron. In 1968, they moved from Ohio to Newport Beach, California. The family relocated to Sonoma County in 1974, settling in Sebastopol. Lois was a homemaker who loved to read and garden, and was always fond of animals, especially her cats. She loved her family and friends dearly, with a soft spot for her nieces and nephews. She will always be remembered for her kindness and generosity, and her tender heart. A service will be held for Lois on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at Knox Presbyterian Church, 1650 West 3rd Street, Santa Rosa, CA 95401.
