Lois Janet Bachman passed away Thursday, September 19, 2019 in Spokane, Washington. Those who had the good fortune to know Lois undoubtedly would agree she was a remarkable woman with a fierce sense of humor and an infectious giggle. Smart and witty, she had people laughing right up to the end. She was passionate about her various dogs and was an incredibly talented artist. She spent her final years doing what she loved most, volunteering at the senior center, gardening, painting and spending time with her great grandchildren. Lois was born November 21, 1936 in Topeka, Kansas. She moved to Spokane when she was eight months old. She worked in retail and played "bad tennis". She relished being by the side of Jack Bachman, the love of her life for 45 years. The two went on various adventures, traveling, sailing and fishing. They spent time showing cars as members of a local car club. If the two were together, they were happy. Lois was a smart, passionate, loving, funny woman who will truly be missed. She is survived by stepsons, Benny and Samuel (Teri) Bachman; stepdaughter Dani (Wayne) Brant; grandchildren Nick (Star) and Cameron (Dani) Bachman, John Ash Jr., Gina (Jeff) O'Neill, Sammy Bachman Jr., Neil Bachman; great-grandchildren, Olivia, Harper, August, Declan, Norah O'Neill and Grady, Torin, Corbin and Armine Bachman.
