Lois M. Lathrop, 86, of Franklin, passed away on Thursday, July 9, 2020.

Born in Mt. Holly, NC, she was the daughter of the late Frank Campbell and Elizabeth Evans Campbell. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, John Marsh Lathrop; brother, Robert Lee Campbell and sister, Mary Campbell Purcell. Lois loved birdwatching; her love of hummingbirds brought she and John together to spend 18 wonderful years together before he passed away in 2019. She loved being with family and spending time with her church family at Iotla Baptist Church. Lois was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Nequassa Chapter 43.

She is survived by three children, Gloria Oliver Franklin (Hugh) of Franklin, Jerry Oliver (Sharon Hall) of Fletcher and Randal Alan Oliver (Brenda Wheatley) of Sylva; step-children, Rev. Kerry Lathrop (Kim) of Waynesville, Greg Lathrop (Karen) of Asheville and Amy Lathrop of Franklin; three grandchildren, Ryan Alexander, Lori Elizabeth and Shannon Nicole; two great grandchildren, Kylie Brielle and Theodore Cabe and one niece, Cathy Hamrick of Wilmington, NC.

Private Funeral Services will be held at Iotla Baptist Church. Rev. Brandon Breedlove, Rev. Judson Hall and Rev. Steve Reeves will officiate.

I remember working with Lois at Roses Department Store when I was a young man. She was such a sweet person with a smile and kind word at the read. My prayers to the family. Rest In Peace Lois.
