Lois Evans Lafferty Meyer

of Little Rock, AR

September 9, 1929 - June 5, 2024

Lois Evans Lafferty Meyer was born in Heber Springs, Arkansas on September 9, 1929. She died June 5, 2024 at the age of 94. She is preceded in death by her husband, Walter J. Meyer; her parents, Robert D. and Edith A. Walker-Evans; brothers, Wayne Evans (Telethia) and Billy Evans; her sister, Anna Kerr; as well as her first husband, Kelley Lafferty, father of her two daughters; nephews, Michael Evans and Timothy Holliman-Kerr and one niece, Gail Hansbro.

She is survived by her two wonderful daughters, Joan Lafferty Hearnsberger (Bill) of Little Rock, AR and Janet Lafferty Disarro of McKinney, Texas; her wonderful grandchildren, Carrie Hearnsberger Carter (Chuck) and Jan Hearnsberger Collins (Jeremy) all of Little Rock, AR; John Disarro (Brooke), Chrissy Disarro Richards (Cole) of McKinney, Texas and Nate Disarro of Little Rock. Lois is also survived by her brother-in-law, Victor Kerr of Alexander.

She loved watching her "GREATS", as she lovingly called them, grow up, Caroline Carter Shuffield (Luke) of Rogers, AR, Annie and Charlie Carter, Tate and Mylie Collins, Weston and Austin Disarro all of Little Rock and Micah, Jacob and Caydon Disarro of Texas. Other survivors are nieces, Brenda Holliman of Benton, AR, Marsha Spears (Carl), of Greenbriar and nephew, T. Wayne Evans, Heber Springs, AR.

Lois graduated from Heber Springs High School and then made Little Rock home. After marrying Walt, they lived in Indiana for several years until his retirement, then moved to Little Rock.

She was very active in her church, school and community, working at Baptist Medical Center, LR, Little Rock Chamber of Commerce and Southwestern Bell. Being very much the "people person" the job she enjoyed most was the years she spent in the dress shop at the Excelsior Hotel, (now Marriot Hotel) where she met people from all over the world.

Lois and Walt loved travel, cruises were the favorite, also Ballroom dancing and volunteer work as long as she could. She loved working with the flowers in her yard and playing bridge and dominoes with friends. She really enjoyed going to basketball, volleyball, football, dance recitals, all those things to see her grandchildren in action. Lois truly loved her family and spending time with them more than anything!

Graveside service will be at Pinecrest Memorial Park, Alexander, AR, Saturday, June 8, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. Please make memorials to Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA.donordrive.com), as it has hit her family drastically.

I know Ms. Lois is in Heaven, dancing with Walt and spending time with her Lord and Savior. Sending love and big hugs to the family. Thank you for letting me be her caregiver. I'm a better person for knowing her.

I am sorry to learn of the passing of your mother Lois. I am a cousin; my mother was Helen Parks Stark, daughter of Julia Parrish Parks, and sister to Aunt Edith. We lived near Aunt Edith and Uncle Robert when I was growing up and we visited often. I am close to Anna’s age. May God bless you all,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. May you find peace and comfort in the promises of our heavenly Father Jehovah, as found in His Word the Bible, at Acts 24:15: "... there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.", and Psalm 37:29: "The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it."

No-one ever had a better friend. We had such good times through many years, and I will miss her so much.
