Lois was a true “people person” and never met a stranger. She worked as a secretary for Brookfield Local Schools until retiring in 1983. In her younger years, Lois was very active in Brookfield United Methodist Church and loved volunteering wherever needed. She was an expert bridge player and frequently had her name in the local newspaper, The Herald, for winning weekly Buhl Club bridge tournaments in Sharon, PA. Lois was an avid golfer, enjoyed bowling and was passionate about playing cards and participated in several card clubs. She loved crossword puzzles, word games and could always be counted on to share a funny joke. Lois’s fun and joyful personality was contagious to everyone she met.
