Lois Ann Moore Coots, 64, of Houston, Texas, passed peacefully on July 19, 2017, following a courageous battle with MDS (myelodysplastic syndrome) and AML (acute myeloid leukemia).

She was born Feb. 13, 1953, in Butler, Mo., to Anna Lee and Loy Moore.

Growing up, she was active in 4-H, church choir and school band and enjoyed time with her siblings on the family farm. 

A 1980 graduate of Emporia State University, Lois Ann moved to Houston shortly after school to pursue a role at Gulf Oil, which paved the way for a successful career in the oil and gas sector. 

While she loved her work and colleagues, her daughters took center stage. From softball and student council to college and careers, she supported each of their endeavors and marveled in their successes. 

Lois Ann loved traveling and was always planning her next big adventure. She will be remembered for her graceful demeanor, eternal optimism and unwavering sense of humor.

Lois Ann was preceded in death by her parents. 

She is survived by her adoring daughters Kyra Ann Coots and Kylee Beth Ngo, and her husband Jeff, all of Houston. She is also survived by her brother, Jimmie Moore and wife Rhonda of La Cygne, Kan., and her brother, Russell “Rusty” Moore of Paola, Kan.; nieces and nephews Charlie Moore and wife Jolene, Brian Moore and wife Jennifer, Crystal Moore, Dusty Moore and Nikki Rhynerson; a host of beloved great nieces and nephews; and many cherished friends.

Visitation was held Monday, July 24, 2017, at Schneider Funeral Home, La Cygne. A funeral service was held Tuesday, July 25, at Calvary Baptist Church with interment immediately following at Oak Lawn Cemetery.

A celebration of life will be held in the near future in Houston.
