Lois Lucille (Canaday) Hupfer passed away peacefully Sept. 19 in Brighton. She had recently been diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease. She chose to undergo treatment and fought hard but in the end, the stress on her heart was just too much.
Lois began work as a "soda jerk" at Lakewood Pharmacy, followed by clerking at Alameda Drug Store and then as a credit approval clerk at Montgomery Ward. She also worked nights at Lakeshore Drive-In, where she met her husband-to-be, Delbert Richard Hupfer. They were married Aug. 13, 1955.
Shortly after their first child was born, Lois started working for the Bureau of Reclamation (federal government). Her career with the government took her to three bureaus-reclamation, Selective Service System, and finally to the Bureau of Land Management. After serving in public office for more than 26 years, she decided she needed more time to enjoy her hobby of genealogy research and took early retirement.
Lois published two books tracing her family roots as well as those of Del's family. In addition, she helped many friends and other family members learn more about their own heritage.
Later in life, she became interested in doll collecting. What started out as a few quickly grew. At the time of her death, she had more than 1,500 dolls in her collection.
Her husband preceded her in death. Survivors include her four children: Cynthia Ann Clements (Bruce), Roger Duane Hupfer (Catherine), Karen Hupfer Norman (Tim) and Jodi Sue Heritage (Tim); five grandchildren and a sister, Patricia Hall.
Private family services took place. Please make a donation to in her memory.
