Lois Jean Horsley Egan


Lois Jean Horsley Egan, 67, passed away on Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021, at her home after a two-year battle with cancer.

Lois was born on July 15, 1954, in Whittier, Calif., and attended El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera. She married the love of her life, John Egan, on Aug. 9, 1975.

She was a lover of all things in life, but most of all, her family and friends. Everyone she met instantly became family. She loved animals, shopping, traveling, Tennessee Vols football and spending summers out on the river. She was always the life of the party and could make even the most mundane tasks seem less boring. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Lois was preceded in death by her mother, Charlotte June Samson Horsley; and her father, Elvin Vincent Horsley.

She is survived by her loving husband of 46 years, John Egan; her children: Scott (Olivia) Egan and Katie (Matt) Egan Barefoot; her brothers: Lloyd (Ada) Horsley and Vince Horsley; brother-in-law, Tommy (Gloria) Egan; grandchildren: Nathan Criddle, Lauren Egan and Charlee Barefoot; and several nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life is being planned in the coming weeks. Details will be made available via Facebook.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Ingram Cancer Center at Vanderbilt:
