Lois Day, wife of Walter Day, passed away peacefully after a lengthy illness on September 20th, 2016. She was the daughter of the late Roy B. and Mary (Sweet) Peavey.
Lois was born and raised in Gloucester, Mass., where she attended public schools and lived until she met the love her life and husband, Walter. They moved their family to Vinalhaven, Maine where they began their very successful lobstering business aboard F/V Night Moves. We are very proud of Lois and her accomplishments in life which, in addition to running the family business, include working with Elder Care, becoming a licensed massage therapist, and working as a home health aid. Lois loved being outdoors, and could always be found happily working in her many beautiful gardens around her home.

She was also predeceased by her sister, Mary Jane Nelson; her brother, Robert Peavey; her father-in-law, Henley Day; and brother-in-law, Douglas Day.
Lois also leaves behind her pets, Lola and Ace. Her beloved dog, Cole, waits for her at the "rainbow bridge."
