Lois Defean Breedlove departed this life the evening of April 10, 2006 at Sunset Village of the Ozarks, St. Robert, Missouri, at the age of 91 years, 9 months and 9 days.

Lois was born July 1, 1914 in Rogersville, Missouri. She was one of eight children born to the union of the late James Charles "Dude" Hyde and Carrie (Burks) Hyde.

The Hyde family lived on the Webster/Christian County line, but the children attended the Rogersville schools.

Lois accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior at a young age, and was baptized in the Finley River. She was a member of the La Rose Church and attended the First Baptist Church in Webster County.

On July 31, 1932 in Rogersville, Lois was united in marriage with Robert Monroe Breedlove. Lois and Robert were blessed with one son, Charles Dale. Both Robert and Charles preceded Lois in death.

Robert and Lois moved to the Waynesville, Missouri area in 1951. Lois worked at the Fort Leonard Wood Bus Station for over 30 years, and attended the First Baptist Church of Waynesville for more than 50 years where she was extremely involved in church activities until her health no longer permitted her attendance.
