Lois Cheryl Baizen
Peabody, MA – Lois Cheryl Baizen, of Peabody, passed away peacefully on November 18th, at the Harriett and Ralph Kaplan Estates after a long battle with brain cancer. She was the beloved wife of the late Larry Baizen; and dear daughter of the late Mollie and Jonas Mandelbaum.
Lois loved her family and anything basketball related. She spent the early years of her career teaching before starting her family. She then began working with her husband, Larry at the marine mechanic shop which they started together. Lois was married to her high school sweetheart for 46 years before brain cancer also took his life. She was a dedicated and loving wife, an incredible mother and an amazing grandma or goomy as the grandchildren lovingly called her.
Lois is survived by her brothers Neal Mandelbaum and his wife Beth, Bruce Mandelbaum and his wife Ellen; daughters Rachel MacIver and her husband Richard, Tracey Mariani and her husband Jamie; and her grandchildren, Jacob, Hayley and Mackenzie Mariani.
Due to regulation imposed by the Coronavirus Pandemic a private graveside service was held at Ahabat Shalom Cemetery.
