Our deep condolences to Lois's family. The Lady Cobra Club and class of 1954.

Coleen Rahn Biezenbos, Savannah, Ga

I'm sorry for your loss. Death is very painful to all of us. However Jehovah is the supreme comforter and offers it through his word The Bible. 1Corinthians 15:26 brings comfort in knowing that soon God's kingdom will put an end to death. I hope this scripture and many like it help you to endure this difficult time

, Savannah, Ga

My sincere condolences to the family for the loss of your dear love one. May each of you find strength through God's promises at Psalms 37:9-11. https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-life-and-death/

Lois Virginia Bennett Riner, 81, passed away July 9, 2018 at Brookdale Assisted Living in Rome after a long illness.

Lois was born in Savannah on November 22, 1936 to Joseph H. and Margaret T. Bennett. She graduated from Commercial High School in Savannah in 1954 and married Bobby Randal Riner at Wesley Oak United Methodist Church on June 9, 1954, immediately relocating to Everett, Washington, where he was deployed with the United States Air Force.

Lois faithfully raised a growing family through nearly 20 years of Air Force deployments in Washington, Japan, New York and England before returning to Savannah in 1973, where they resided for the next 40 years. Lois and Bobby moved to Rome, Ga. in 2013 to be closer to family.

Lois is survived by Bobby – her husband of 64-years, a brother, Julius Hendrix Bennett, and a sister, Margaret Jean Bennett Lewis (Lindy) of Savannah, a sister-in-law, Sharon Bennett and brother-in-law, Edward Hendrix; two daughters, Cheryl Lynn Riner Hodge (Al), of Rome, and Toni Marie Riner Kraft (John) of Acworth, Ga. She also had beloved granddaughters, Marsha Marie Hodge Gordon (Michael) of Marietta, GA., Sarah Virginia Kraft of Kennesaw, Ga. and Millie Burns Kraft of Athens, Ga.; and great grandchildren, Elizabeth Virginia "Libby" Gordon and Matthew Bennett Gordon of Marietta; and Luca Randal Alonzo of Kennesaw, as well as a number of nephews, nieces and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, as well as a brother, Joseph Cleveland Bennett, a sister-in-law, Ona Merle Riner Hendrix and a sister-in-law, Laura Bennett.
