Y 2 I The L0vell Chronicle I April 30, 2015 Lois Bernelda Beddes March 5, 1934 - April 21, 2015 Lois Bernelda Beddes, 81, died Tuesday, April 21, 2015, at the New Horizons Care Center in Lovell. Lois was the second child born to Elof Emanuel Erick- son and Olevine Elizabeth Genereux. Her life started on March 5, 1934, in Stuart, Holt County, Neb near Naper, Neb. She was born in a private home and de- livered by Mrs. Cadwalder, a midwife at that time. Lois was named after Mrs. Cad- walder's granddaughter, Lois Bernelda. For the first few years Lois' parents lived in Nap- er, Boyd County, Neb un- til they later moved to the land and house where her Grandpa Erickson home- steaded. He homestead- ed before writing to Lois' grandma, who was still in Sweden, asking her to come to America and marry him. They built a two-story house that became the home Lois grew up in. Years ago, Lois went back to her childhood home. The house was gone, but she was able to get a start off of her grandma's lilac bush, which still grows on the northwest corner of her home in Cowley. Lois grew up with two sisters, Maxine and Vir- ginia, as well as one broth- er, LeRoy. Their home was only a hundred yards away from the Niobrara River as well as only a few yards away from a large pond, creating a big playground for her and her siblings. Like all kids in the area, Lois and her sisters and brother walked two miles to a country school and back home after class. They all learned to milk cows and operate farm equipment while in grade school and helped on the farm. She was a child during the stock market crash and the Great Depression.

Those who continue to smoke lose an average of 20 years of their life expectancy. Nicotine affects every organ in the body and has a long Jack Carpenter list of physical consequences from its use. Unfortunately, the euphoric pleasures of nicotine initially outweigh the MHS, PA-C, FAWM insidious physical effects from smoking and it is not until someone recognizes these effects that they have the desire to quit-at which point they find themselves addicted. As a health care provider, I have daily opportunities to talk to people regarding quitting smoking. Although there are a few people that have no desire to quit, the major- ity of smokers have found that they have become addicted to nicotine and would like to quit, but can't. Studies have shown that smokers are much more successful at quitting when they have help such as moral support, nicotine replacement or someone to quit with. For those who have the desire to quit, there are currently two free services to help you quit. The Wyoming QuitTobacco Program provides free help for quitting tobacco products. By calling their toll free number (I-800-QUIT-NOW) you will be paired with a counselor for fifteen minute sessions of 1:1 counseling. They provide free nicotine patches, gum or lozenges for up to 12 weeks per year. Other medications such as Chan- tix which has been very effective in smoking cessation may also be available at no cost. Another free service is the Wyoming Quitnet (wy.quitnet.com). Quitnet is an on- line service that can allow the registered user to receive online help, as well as reminders and motivation to help quit smoking. If you're a smoker and want to quit, try one of these free services and take back your health.You won't regret it. OWNER: RON LINDSAY 2,10'00 am Washakie County Fairgrounds * Worland W t SO !
