She then married Bill Dunne on August 16, 1980 and he survives. She had retired from Delco Radio in 1978.

Lois was most proud of her family. She was an important link in the closeness of her mother, daughter, grandkids and great grandkids. Her family was her passion and she taught them lifelong skills such as the ability to overcome challenges, being hard working, determined, caring, and friendly. Lois was always concerned about others. Cooking was one of Lois’s favorite things to do, and she enjoyed sharing and hearing about recipes. Peanut butter balls at Christmas, ham salad, and fried chicken are among her family’s favorites. Lois and Bill enjoyed spending several winters in Leesburg, Florida, and summers at Lake Shafer. She loved to play golf and was proud of her hole-in-one. Lois and Bill spent hours jigsaw puzzling and donating the finished projects to her granddaughter’s classroom of 2nd graders. Mr. and Mrs. Dunne are members of Fairview Baptist Church in Kokomo and loved attending Cowboy Church. After she was unable to attend, she watched and listened to church and gospel music on television. Thank you to all the amazing care from Great Lakes; Chaplain David Dodson, her special friend Rachel, and nurse Stephanie Morris. Stephanie is so much more than a nurse to Lois and her family. Stephanie is the epitome of one who is called by God to be BY YOUR SIDE. Thank you, also, to In Stitches with Deb and Deb Zent for the thoughtful gift of gowns. Lois loved her dear friend, Elva. She and Bill became best friends with neighbor, Bud Buck, whom she loved dearly.

Survivors include her husband Bill, her daughter, Deborah Greathouse Tackett, a step daughter, Jeanne Dunne, two granddaughters; Tina (David) Roller and Kelly (Chris) Tuberty. Also surviving are her great grandchildren; Joshua Roller, Mallory Roller, Cassidy Roller, Morgan Tuberty and Meg Tuberty. Her brother, Mack Dobson also survives.

He is survived by his loving wife, Marsha Foresman (Bellman) children Raymond (Joe) Foresman III of Las Vegas, Sharyl Stafford (Chuck) and granddaughters Skylar and Brynlee Stafford of Denver. Also surviving include siblings John Foresman (Linda), James Foresman (Nancy) and Joanne Blenman (Foresman) as well as many nephews, nieces, grand nephews and nieces, all of whom were very close to Ray. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Raymond J. Foresman, Sr and Connie Foresman (Diesing) of Grosse Pointe. Ray was born in Detroit, Michigan on November 22, 1942. The family had moved to Owosso, Michigan where Ray spent much of his childhood before moving to Toledo, Ohio and then to Grosse Pointe, MI. In 1960, he attended the University of Michigan where his roommate Jack Restrick would become his lifelong best friend. It was in college, working as a disc jockey on the campus radio station where he met the love of his life, Marsha Bellman. Ray graduated from Michigan in 1964. Marsha graduated in 1965 and they were married shortly after on September 1, 1965, remaining together for the next 51 years until his passing.

After college, Ray attended Wayne State Law School in Detroit graduating in 1967. He and Marsha moved to Lansing, Michigan where he began his legal career with the Attorney General’s office. In 1969 he began working for the law firm of Willingham and Cote in East Lansing where he worked as a partner until his retirement in 2007. Throughout his career, he was recognized as one of the most highly respected litigators in the state of Michigan.

In 1970, Ray and Marsha adopted their son, Joe and in 1973 their daughter Sharyl was born. Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Okemos, Michigan where they lived in the same house for the next 22 years spending summers at a home on Crystal Lake in Beulah, MI. Near the turn of the century, Ray and Marsha purchased a home in Tucson, Arizona where they would spend winters returning to Crystal Lake for the summer and fall.

Ray’s first and most adoring passion was his children and granddaughters. His strong sense of family kept everyone close, and Ray was loved deeply by all of his nephews and nieces as well as all of his children’s close friends throughout the years.
