Lois Shikami passed away peacefully on February 16, 2021, leaving her husband behind. She was born in Seattle, WA, and later interned at Minidoka. Lois grew up in Delavan, WI, graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and taught grade school in Chicago, at the Howe School, for some 23 years. She was dedicated to her church, the Christ Church of Chicago, where she had many friends. She met her husband, Jim, at Chicago’s Carson Pirie Scott. They loved, teased, and supported each other always. She raised four children and enjoyed her two grandkids – who were all fortunate to share in her love and sense of adventure. She was a fine cook. There were always parties with friends and relatives. A social, energetic, and joyful person, there was always a new project, something to be involved in, and laughter. Born into a family of six, she is survived by a brother and a sister. Memorial contributions may be made to Christ Church of Chicago (www.christchurchchicago.wordpress.com), 6047 N. Rockwell Ave., Chicago, IL, 60659. Funeral info: 847.673.6111.
