Lois A (Heaps) Jourdain
Lois A (Heaps) Jourdain, of Weare, NH, passed away on April 30, 2021 after a brief battle with acute myeloid leukemia. Born in Nashua, NH on February 10, 1950, she is predeceased by her loving husband David, her parents, Edna G. Heaps and Louis Gagnon, and her siblings, Edna Bromfield of Bainbridge, GA and Randall Heaps of Fitchburg, MA.
Lois will be remembered as a kind and generous soul, giving of herself in service to others. During her lifetime, she taught swimming lessons at the YWCA and Camp Kiwanis Girl Scout Camp in Tyngsboro, MA. She found her passion in long-term care nursing and was a graduate of both St. Joseph’s School of Practical Nursing (LPN) and Rivier College School of Nursing (BSN). She spent the majority of her career at Fairview Nursing Home in Hudson, NH. After her retirement from nursing, Lois became a substitute nurse and teacher in the school districts of Nashua, Hudson and Weare.
Lois enjoyed traveling by car, plane or boat; playing the slots wherever she could find them, and Trinity bingo on Friday nights at Angel Wing Bingo Center with her best friend of 67 years, Kay Hannah. Most often you could find her with a good book, a glass of wine and her crochet needles watching her programs. A rousing game of Trivial Pursuit brought out her competitive spirit, and her team had a winning record.
It is never easy to say goodbye to such a special person. Lois was well-loved by many. She is survived by her brother, Jack Heaps of Bainbridge, GA, and her children, Gerald and Betty Jourdain of Hudson NH; Ray and Gladys Jourdain of Coral Gables, FL; Deborah and James Gaspar of Merrimack, NH; Lois Mason of Nashua, NH; and Pamela and Craig Moul of Weare, NH.
