Lois A. Runions Linsenmayer Obituary
Lois A. Runions Linsenmayer, 65, passed away July 25th 2012 in the presence of her beloved and loving husband Bruce and daughter Katharine, joining her parents, George and Stella, several half-brothers and sisters and many beloved pets who are surely crowding the streets of Heaven to make her welcome among them. Born February 26, 1947 and raised in San Fernando, Lois was a Job's Daughter, Girl Scout, and member of the Girl's Friendly Society of Los Angeles (GFS) through her local Episcopal church, St. Simon's in San Fernando. She loved attending GFS camp at Camp Stevens throughout her life and with her family. At San Fernando High School Lois studied in the professional track, graduating early in 1964. Lois found her calling as a Reserve Police Officer and records clerk for the City of San Fernando. At a time when few departments were hiring female officers, she enrolled in the Police Academy where, in 1970, she met her future husband Bruce. Lois and Bruce were married on May 1, 1971 and in 1972 the couple staked their claim in Bruce's hometown Altadena. She left SFPD in 1974 with the birth of her only child, her daughter Katharine. A devoted homemaker and mother, she returned to work as a bookkeeper for a local school to ensure she'd be able to be home for her family when they needed her. Upon retirement, Lois turned her attention to that which she loved most, her family, her critters, and local history. She loved spending time in the yard, watching the birds, feeding the fence lizards, researching her ancestry and purchasing San Fernando, Altadena and Pasadena memorabilia on eBay. Blessed with a wicked sense of humor and quick wit, Lois could always be counted on to make you laugh. Loved by so many more than she would have ever believed, she touched so many lives - human and critter alike, and she will be missed more than words can describe. At her request, there are no services planned. In lieu of flowers, the family asks those wishing to honor her memory to please consider donating in her name to Camp Stevens, P.O. Box 2320, Julian CA, 92036.
