LOIS ARMOUR

Helen Lois Adams Armour left her earthly home on Sunday, October 23, 2022.

She was born March 14, 1937, in Burbank, California, to parents George Maxey and Odris Zu Adams.

In 1954, she met and married Lionel Joe Armour, who was in the United States Air Force, in Amarillo, Texas. They made their home in Henderson, Tennessee, where Mr. Armour was a Ranger and later Superintendent at Chickasaw State Park. Mrs. Armour also worked at the park as a secretary beginning in the 1960s. She loved Chickasaw State Park and considered it her home, as the family lived there until Mr. Armour’s death in 1969. She retired from the park as a Clerk 2 in 2014.

She loved her family and looked forward to holidays when they were all together. She enjoyed watching movies and game shows, playing Yahtzee with her family, and eating Little Debbie Cakes.

She was a member of First Baptist Church of Henderson.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Joe Armour; a daughter, Mickey Jo Armour, who died of SIDS in 1962; her parents, George and Odris Adams; a sister, Joanne Adams; and two brothers, Ray Adams and Jim Butler.
