Lois Lee Byers, who loved to be called “Momma” by her kids, departed her loving family on Saturday, October 15, 2022. Lois was born in Bedford County on July 22, 1934 to John H. Hudson, Jr. and Lily T. Hudson. She was a member of Big Island Baptist Church for over 60 years. Lois was mother to Bill Byers and his wife Pam, Kathy Byers, David Byers and his wife Susan, Johnny Byers and Nancy Byers. She raised her children as a dedicated homemaker with love and devotion in Big Island with her husband Billy Byers. Lois is survived by her five children; six grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and numerous nephews and nieces. She leaves behind her sisters, Marion Weeks and her husband George and June H. Wilson. Special thanks to her good friend Gail Mabe and her caretaker, Jamie Blankenship. The family is especially grateful to Big Island Baptist Church and Bedford Hospice for the comfort and care provided. A visitation will be held 4:00 – 6:30 p.m., on Friday, October 21, 2022 at Big Island Baptist Church. Lois requested no service as she wanted to be remembered in death as she was in life, full of spirit and verve. In lieu of flowers please consider Big Island Baptist Church, Big Island Fire & Rescue, or Bedford Hospice. Arrangements by Burch-Messier Funeral Home, Bedford, 540-586-7360.
