Lois Ann Headrick (née Middleton)
August 26, 1924 – October 26, 2018
Lois Ann Headrick (née Middleton) died at age 94 at 2 p.m., Friday, October 26, with family around her and more family members en route to her bedside, for although far apart geographically, there is but one home for all and Lois was at its heart.
Born in Chicago, on August 26, 1924, Lois moved to Omaha with her mother and father, Ruth and G.J. Middleton, and her sister, Marilyn. Lois met her future husband, Richard Craig Williams, at Central High School and they married in 1944 after WWII.
They had three children, Pamela, Steven, and Barbara. After Richard’s untimely death at 38, Lois married Ken Headrick in 1961. Ken had one daughter from a previous marriage, Beth Headrick, who came to call Lois, “Mom.”
After Ken passed away suddenly in 1994, Lois remained devoted to her four children, eight grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren, and never tired of laughing and sharing stories with them.
Lois will be remembered as a woman who was diminutive in stature but large in spirit and somewhere, right now, Lois is dancing to Big Band music, kicking up the heels of her size 5 shoes.
Survived by: children Pamela (Michael), Steven (Pamela), Beth, and Barbara; grandchildren Matthew, Michelle, Katy, Jessica, Renata, Andrew, Marina, and David; and great-grandchildren Anna, Stella, Ryan, Tyler, and Sophia.
SERVICES: Tuesday, October 30th at 2pm at the West Center Chapel. In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance.
So sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I am so sorry to hear about Lois. She was always such a kind hearted and fun loving lady!. She will be missed by so many friends and family. My thoughts and prayers to Pamela, Steven, Beth, Barbara and her family.
I was sad to learn of Lois’ passing. I have such fond memories of her and Ken while working at KFAB. I’m sure she is kicking up her heels in Heaven. God Bless.
