porter1.jpg  Lois C. Porter, 80, of Oakfield passed away on Monday August 23, 2021 at her home, with her loving family by her side. She was born on December 17, 1940 in Whitesville, NY to the late Lawrence Ordway and Mary (Beiser) Ordway. She is predeceased by her husband Roger D. Porter; a son, Roger D. Porter Jr.; and brothers Donald Ordway, Richard Ordway, and Robert Ordway.

Lois was a great woman, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.  She treasured her family, to whom her generosity knew no bounds. Lois was an awesome mix of boundless love, and extraordinary toughness.  She raised her children and grandchildren with a strong steady hand.  

Lois was a tireless worker, and spent many days side-by-side with her husband in home improvement and maintenance projects.  She kept an immaculate house, decorated with her crafts, and delicately painted ceramics. She loved a regular Settler’s breakfast surrounded by friends and family; a spicy episode of Judge Judy; and a Bills win!

She is survived by her daughters; Cherie (Jamie) Egloff of Oakfield and Robyn (Mark) Godwin of Corfu; sisters Jean Coleman and Florence Lovelady both of Whitesville, NY; grandchildren, Bradley and Melissa Shaughnessy, Krisha Godwin, 2 great grandchildren Viktoria and Reagan, along with many nieces and nephews.

There will be no prior calling hours. Funeral Services will be held privately for the family. She will be laid to rest in Cary Cemetery in Oakfield.
