Lois Webb Douglas passed away peacefully at her home on Fort Myers Beach on March 9, 2019, after 87 years of an amazingly well-lived life. She was predeceased by her youngest son (Paul Douglas), and is survived by her husband of 65 years (Harold Douglas), 3 children (Stephen Douglas, Susan Ganosellis and David Douglas), 11 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren, who all loved her deeply.
Lois was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on January 5, 1932. She lived in five states (Alabama, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut and Florida) as well as three other countries (Bahamas, England and Belgium). She worked as an educator for 46 years before retiring in 1998 from her last post with the Department of Defense Schools at the Supreme Headquartes of the Allied Powers of Europe (SHAPE) in Brussels. Lois traveled the world extensively with her beloved husband, family and friends, and she embraced people of all races, cultures and religions.
Lois was a beautiful, spiritual, kind and wise woman who loved the beach and books, but above all else, her family. Those who loved her will be gathering from around the world to celebrate her life in the coming weeks. We welcome her many friends to join us in this celebration on March 26 at 10 am in the chapel of Harvey-Engelhardt Funeral Home at 1600 Colonial Blvd in Fort Myers, FL
In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be made to the Fort Myers Beach Public Library in her honor at 2755 Estero Blvd, Fort Myers Beach, FL
