Lincoln - Lois Velma McCormick, 85, passed away at home surrounded by family on May 29, 2021 after a brief battle with cancer. She was born on June 18th, 1935, to Graydon and Zeta Grant in Kilburn, New Brunswick, Canada.
Lois was raised in Canada along with her sister Ruth and brother Robert (Sherry). She remembered many happy times, especially how her parents made everything special without having a lot of money- from picnics in the summer to wonderful Christmases and birthdays. She had a best friend Ruthie Cox who she spent most of her time with. She loved to read from an early age and had lots of books. During her school years she enjoyed learning history, writing (winning a contest in the 8th grade), playing ping pong in the school basement, participating in high school plays, and singing in the school chorus. She also enjoyed playing softball in the summer and sledding in the winter. She attended the Baptist church with her family.
Lois graduated as salutatorian of her high school class in 1954. Following graduation, Lois spent the next three years in nurses’ training in Fredericton, New Brunswick. She started her career in pediatric nursing which she enjoyed very much. It was shortly after this time that she met her first husband, Richard Brown. They married and had two sons, Richard and Robert. They lived in California where she worked in the operating room as an RN. A few years later, they divorced, and Lois would return to Canada. In 1973, she met Norman McCormick from Lincoln, Maine, who would become her second husband in 1974, making her stepmother to Brian and Mitchell McCormick. In 1977, her daughter Beth was born. She continued her career with nursing, working first in the local hospital and then in private practice.
As the years went on, Lois continued many hobbies and activities such as reading, doing crossword puzzles, attending the First Congregational Church of Lincoln (where she was baptized and also became a member), going on family picnics, attending dances with Norman, traveling to the Maine Coast, accompanying Norman on many car rides locally, and spending time with family. She was a wonderful wife, mother, sister, cousin, aunt, grandmother, and friend. She especially enjoyed helping to take care of her grandson, Riley, from a young age, developing an incredibly strong bond.
In addition to her parents, Lois was predeceased by her brother, Robert; husband Norman; and a special niece, Barbara Baude. Lois is survived by her sister, Ruth Delano; son, Richard Brown; son, Robert Brown; daughter, Beth White and her husband Glen; stepchildren Brian McCormick and wife Brenda; Mitchell McCormick and wife Denise; grandchildren RJ.Brown; Mason Brown; Morgan Brown; Andrew McCromick and wife Erin; Christopher McCormick; Allan McCormick; Danielle McCormick; Melissa McCormick, and Riley White; great grandchildren Eden and Emilia McCormick.
Friends are invited to visit with the family 6-8 PM Tuesday, June 1 at the Lamson Funeral Home, Clay Chapel, 7 Lee Road, Lincoln, where memorial services will be held 3 PM Wednesday, June 2. Pastor William Chesley presiding. Burial will immediately follow the service at the Lincoln Cemetery.

My condolences are with you, Beth and your family. Your mom was a delightful person all away around. She was so good with the patients when she worked as our nurse at Dr. Gulesian, Sr. office. And when I got to Lincoln, I always looked her up and we always had a nice chat between the two of us. Yes, she will be surely missed. My love and prayers go out to you. God is good and he will always take care of her now and there will be no more suffering and pain.
Love & Prayers, Earline Temples

Thank you so much for your kind words. She always had nice things to say about you as well. It was nice that you both kept in touch after you moved away.
