Obituary of Lois Maxine Dinger
Lois Maxine Dinger, age 79, a 30+ year resident of Stafford, Virginia passed away on Thursday, January 19, 2023. Lois was born on June 12, 1943 in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to the late Arthur and Gussie Shaffer. Lois was a treasured wife for 59 years, a beloved mother to five children, and a much-loved Mama to 11 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. She enjoyed listening to sermons and gospel music, cooking, and spending time with friends and family. She unselfishly put others’ needs before her own and exuded loving kindness to everyone she met.
