Lois Lillian Herr

Lois Lillian Herr, a San Pedro resident for 56 years, was born in Union City, New Jersey on June 6, 1922. She passed away at home surrounded by family on August 20, 2014 at the age of 92. Lois was preceded in death by her husband of 72 years, Major Joseph E. Herr and her son, Jimmy. She is survived by daughters, Ellen McEvoy, Marie (Larry) Langner, JoAnn (Jack) Mardesich; daughter-in-law, Geraline Accetta; grandchildren, Patty (David) Bentovoja, Michael, Brian, Lindsey Langner, Matthew, Nikki and Joey Mardesich; great-grandchildren, Kelly, Kyle, Katie and Kevin Bentovoja.

Lois Lillian Necker married her longtime sweetheart, Joseph Herr on September 30, 1942. It was World War II and Joe was in the Army. During their early marriage, while Joe was stationed in California, Lois worked at Boeing making airplanes in support of the war effort. Later, the military would send them to live in many exciting places, such as Panama, Formosa and all across the United States. In each place, Lois would make a home for Joe and her growing family. Lois was a wonderful cook and devoted homemaker. She doted on Joe, her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In her later years, she enjoyed knitting, ceramics and jigsaw puzzles, but her greatest joy was spending time with her family and holding the babies. She will be greatly missed. There will be no services per her request. Please sign the guest book at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
