Lois was born in Waterloo and had a lifelong interest in the area. After attending the University of Michigan and graduating from SUNY Cortland she began her teaching career as a middle school science teacher in Yonkers, N.Y. She moved on to the Brighton School District and eventually became a high school guidance counselor. Lois took great pride in helping multitudes of students find their way into the colleges of their choice. She retired in 1977 from the district.
Lois loved to travel, both in the US and Europe. She was especially fond of river boat tours. Bridge and the daily crossword puzzles were a huge part of her life, keeping her mind sharp up until the end. Gardening was another specialty. Lois was an inveterate sports fan who loved the Buffalo Bills and rooted for the New York Giants because the coach was from Waterloo. She watched every Cubbie game she could, hated the Yankees, and loved everything Syracuse University. She enjoyed watching any game on TV. Her family will miss her quick wit and dry sense of humor.
