Lois J. Tilley Obituary
Lois Jean Palmer Tilley, affectionately known as "Cheech," 87, of Latrobe, passed away peacefully Monday, Dec. 3, 2018, in the comfort of her home, surrounded by her family. She was born June 16, 1931, in Youngstown, Pa., to the late M.J. "Deke" and Doris Palmer. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Alfred Ronald Tilley; and two brothers, Arnold and Jerry Palmer. She is survived by her daughters, Kit (Jim) Arbogast, Christy (John) Mavrakis and Cheryl Simet and their families; her sister, Sandy (Vincent) Sarni; and a number of nieces and nephews. Lois Jean was a devoted wife, mom, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend to everyone. During her illustrious life, she worked for the government in numerous positions for more than 20 years. Lois Jean was a member of Latrobe Presbyterian Church and also served as chief coordinator for the Latrobe Area Hospital Charitable Foundation for more than five years. She was as comfortable speaking to presidents as she was with the neighbor next door. "Cheech" was one of God's angels here on earth, and now she is with Him, reunited with loved ones and bringing smiles to all in Heaven.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018, in Unity Chapel, 130 Chapel Lane, Latrobe, with her pastor, the Rev. Clark R. Kerr, officiating. The HARTMAN-GRAZIANO FUNERAL HOME INC. in Latrobe has been entrusted with arrangements.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve at St. Vincent College through the Arnie's Army Charitable Foundation (https://www.arniesarmy.org/donate) (direct all donations to the Nature Reserve), or Latrobe Presbyterian Church at 428 Main St., Latrobe, PA 15650 (https://www.latrobepc.org).
