Lois Blevins Buchanan

August 13, 1937 — February 29, 2024

Glade Spring

Lois Blevins Buchanan, a beloved member the Glade Spring community, has peacefully passed at English Meadows Abingdon VA. She was born on August 13, 1937 in Tazewell County, VA to the late Charles Alden Blevins and Blanche Osborne Blevins. Lois was a dedicated individual. She served as treasurer of Old Glade Presbyterian church and was a banker for many years. Her work ethic and warm demeanor left a lasting impact on those with whom she interacted.

In addition to her parents, Lois was preceded in death by her husband, Richard C. "Shrimp" Buchanan; brother, Wayne Blevins; sister-in-law, Polly Blevins; and brother-in-law, Samuel Wolfe.

In her free time Lois found joy in simple pleasures of life. She had a love for reading and was content to do so for hours. Along with her husband, Lois shared a passion for two-step and square dancing, creating cherished memories on the dance floor.

Education was important to Lois, and she was a proud graduate of Chilhowie High School. Beyond her professional and personal interests, Lois had a talent for cooking and enjoyed cooking Sunday dinners for her family. Her delicious meals and welcoming spirit brought loved ones together around the table.

Survived by her sons Rick Buchanan (Pam), Jeff Buchanan; brother Willard Blevins (Dottie); sisters, Wanda Johnson and Brenda Wolfe; grandchildren Mindy Buchanan-King (John), Gina Hutchinson (Brian), Codie (Tram); great-grandchild Reed Hutchinson; along with several nieces and nephews, Lois will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

The family will receive friends on Thursday, March 7, 2024 at 1:00pm at Old Glade Presbyterian Church. The funeral will be at 2:00 pm on Thursday, March 7, 2024 at Old Glade Presbyterian Church with Rev. Graham Bingham and Rev. Tim Bird officiating. Burial will follow at Rich Valley Presbyterian Church Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Brian Hutchinson, John King, Benny Tolley, Barry Tolley, Tom Gentry and Mike Guy. Honorary pallbearers will be Clark Hutton, Gary Dutton, Tom Buchanan, Bo Buchanan, and Ira Buchanan.

The family would like to express their deep gratitude to Stacey Taylor, the staff at English Meadows, the staff at Abingdon Health and Rehab and the staff of Caris Hospice for the care they provided to Lois.
