Lois' speech inflections are incredibly charismatic, yet very authentic. She has absolute command of the characters she portrays. I didn't mention her in the past tense, because someone with that much life in them could never fade away.

Lois was married to the great writer/radio host Jean Shepherd for most of the 60s...
