"What Does the Lord Require of You? to Act Justly and to Love Mercy and to ​Walk Humbly​ With Your God."

Mrs. Lois Emelia (Anderson) Arcuni, of Greenwich, Connecticut, born on September 14, 1934 in St Louis, Missouri, to the late Lavina Damon Anderson and the late Harold Anderson, passed away at age 84 on March 7, 2019 in Durham, North Carolina due to complications of Alzheimer’s disease. Lois graduated from Greenwich High School and Albright College. She married Philip Arcuni in June 22, 1957. Everyone knew Lois as gracious and kind.

Lois was a homemaker and part-time seamstress. She was also an artist who gifted her family with dozens of beautiful paintings. Other hobbies included biking and boating. Lois was kind and generous; our community was blessed by her many volunteer efforts through the years. While raising children, she was a swim instructor and girl scout leader. Later, she was an award-winning newsletter editor for the Power Squadron boating organization, and for the local animal rescue. She was also an active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Lois lived many places as a military wife, but she and her husband Phil spent most of their years in Key West FL, where she loved to boat, snorkel, fish, paint, and raise cats.

Lois is preceded in death by her son, Philip Wayne Arcuni. She is survived by her husband Philip; sister Doris Lovina Davies; her daughter Cheryl Arcuni Wicker; daughter in-law Carin Marie Pacifico and grandchildren Cara Cateri Arcuni, Philip Matthias Arcuni, Jared Chandler Wicker and Jessica Alexandra Wicker.

The family is grateful for the thoughtful care and support of the kind people at August Estates care home. A memorial service, with a scattering of ashes at sea, will be held
at a later date. In lieu of gifts, we ask for donations to organizations dedicated to animal rescue or Alzheimer’s research.
