      Lois Sydnor Angle Love (1925-2018)

      Lois Sydnor Angle Love, 92, passed away on Saturday morning, April 7, 2018, in Roman Eagle Rehabilitation and Health Care. She was born in Edmonds Hospital, Danville, Virginia on October 6, 1925, a daughter of the late Montrose Staton Angle and Lois Bass Angle of Milton, N.C. On February 5, 1949 she was married to James Stephens Love who died on September 12, 1989. She was a graduate of Archibald Murphy High School in Milton, N.C., attended Flora McDonald College, Red Springs, N.C., and Women's College, University of North Carolina, Greensboro, N.C. Lois was an active member of Mount Vernon United Methodist Church where she served as a Sunday school nursery teacher for many years.

      She also served on the Finance Committee, the Administrative Board, the Board of Trustees and was active in United Methodist Women. She was active in the community as a member of The Wednesday Club, the Danville Museum of Fine Arts & History, the Dorothea Henry Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Forest Hills Garden Club, the Henry Corbin Chapter of The National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century, and served several terms as a member of the Board of Directors for the American Red Cross. Lois worked for two years in the Dan River Mills office, nine years at Security Bank & Trust Company, ten years as bookkeeper for Mowbray Construction Company, and retired in 1997 after fifteen and a half years as bookkeeper for the Hatcher Center.

Townes Funeral Home, 215 West Main St, is serving the Love family.

      A telephone call on Saturday told me of the passing of a dear lifelong friend, Lois Sydnor Angle love. She was always Lois Sydnor to those of us who grew up together, as double names were frequent. Someone asked me not long ago how long I had known her. I never did not know her. She was always here. She and I were in 3 months of the same age, and we have grown old in constant touch. When we finished college we moved to Danville as young career women and shared a room until my marriage. Those were war years and we found much to entertain us. We joined the young women’s group at the Y, and found congenial friendship there that has lasted. We rode the city buses to work and were able to share lunch often at Hylton Hall, now defunct and finally burned. There were USO dances at the Y with service men from Norfolk and all the nearby Army bases. The Wrenn girls had rooms at the McMann home and were lifelong friends. It was a carefree time. In her wedding I was a bridesmaid. My own was a small family/friend wedding at my grandmother’s house.

      Fortunately our husbands were most congenial and so the friendship went long past the time we were both widows. Our lives have been lived together through a very long lifetime. The last trip we made together was several years ago when we visited my family in Idaho. They were such good hosts that they showed us all they could of the Yellowstone and the entire area. We discussed that trip many times since then. Our phone calls were long and covered many, many topics. Face to face visits became less frequent, but communication did not. There were always something to remember. My sympathy goes to her family, but her passing leaves a big blank place in my life, too.
