Lois Hoag as I knew her was from Lawncrest. She lived on Hasbrook Ave. across from the rec. We went to Franklin school at Cheltenham & Rising Sun Aves. Our class was about 36 kids. I was only in Lois's house once. It reminded me of my house but a little nicer. I know she lived there with her older sister & her dad. Not sure about her mom. I noticed her phone had a lock on the dial , I guess that was better than our house which had no working phone. Like a lot of kids  back then we were a product of parents who lived thru the depretion and also WW2. Then I noticed the pad lock on the frig that was a 1st. After Franklin we went to Creighton for 7th & 8th. Lois got on the track team I think doing relays (she was fast). Then to Olney , we were in the same advisory & went our seperate lives. I talked with her about 15 -20 years ago and she sounded just like a kid. She worked on Rising Sun Ave. about a block from Franklin School. I met her grandmother in the late 60s . She had a candy store in Feltenville on Wyoming Ave. The kids in that neighborhood called her Nellie. About a year ago my aunt (who is 85) said when she was a kid the store was called Hoagies . Small world , She will be missed by all who knew her . Your friend Mike

I have a question about Lois Hoag did she graduate with us?? I remember her and the candy store in Wyoming Ave. Called Nellies. Lots of good memories and penny candies.

I forgot to mention that Lois passed on or around Dec. 12, 2017. Lois and I were out of touch in high school . Looking back we both should have studied more. I know I missed the graduation ceremony , I had to go to summer school at North East and graduated in August.

Her name sounds familiar, but I just can't place her - so....... I'll have to look for my class yearbook and look her up.  I'm so sorry to hear we've lost another one of our classmates.  May she rest in peace.  Kathy Wells
