Lois Lassiter Padgett, age 95, went home to be with the Lord on December 10, 2021, @ 3:16 pm.

Lois Padgett, Granny to her grandkids, was born in Walton County, FL. on November 11, 1926, to Charlie and Viola Lassiter.

Lois was a strong woman who overcame so much in her 95 years of life. Her love was absolute and she never held grudges. She made everyone around her feel special. Her last words were “I love you too” spoken to her granddaughter.

Her life stories were memorable and her laughter while recounting them, was contagious.

She was a woman of strong faith, who told of brush arbor meetings and sunrise prayer services with her mother. She raised her children in that same faith and the legacy she leaves behind is 3rd, 4th, and 5th generation Pentecostals. One of her last wishes was for her faith to be shared with those here today.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 60 years RC Padgett, one daughter Shirley Holladay and one great-grandson Ryan “RC” Richardson.
