Lois Phillips has dedicated her life to her main passion; children. She is the youngest of seven children, and is a strong advocate and alternate guardian for her brother Marvin, who was born with Down Syndrome. Lois has many nieces and nephews, and even more great-nieces and nephews.
Lois is an avid Oiler fan; as a teenager she cheered on Gretzky, Messier and the other legends from the nosebleed section of the Coliseum. Lois’ favourite Oiler will always be Joey Moss, who attended Winnifred Stewart School in Edmonton with her brother. Marvin was the goalie whose floor hockey team beat the classic Oilers team many, many years ago.
Lois believes in volunteering, having been a board member at the Evangelical Free Church in Lac La Biche, taught Sunday School, oversaw Vacation Bible School, and coordinated the nursery during services. Lois spent the summer of 1984 in Colombia, South America as a volunteer with New Tribes Mission.
Lois Phillips has recently retired from NLPS, after having taught primary education for almost 30 years in Lac La Biche and Kikino, Alberta. Lois has roots in the Mallaig area, as well as Glendon, Franchere and and spent many summers at Moose Lake with family and friends.
Lois enjoys music, coffee, reading, sports, technology and laughter with friends.
