Lois Calhoun Cherubin
December 19, 1957 – June 11, 2018
Lois was born to Virginia and John Calhoun in Utica, New York as the youngest of three siblings that included older brothers Mark (Lisa) Calhoun and Robert Calhoun. Lois learned from a young age to be a strong independent woman, and once she set her sights on achieving something, there was nothing that would stop her from accomplishing it. God was so kind to Lois to bless her with her first son Todd Campbell in 1977. John Campbell followed shortly in 1980. The trio soon added to the team, as Lois fell in love with her soulmate and life partner, Alexander Cherubin. They married on June 12, 1987 and shortly after welcomed two more children to their growing family, Alexander II in 1988 and Sarah in 1989. As a fiercely loyal military wife, the family soon found themselves in the good life, Nebraska. It was here that Lois made an immensely memorable home full of love. Over the years, she and her husband worked diligently to provide everything for their children and to encourage them all to follow their dreams. Lois was beyond proud of each one of her children, seeing them all graduate from college and move onto successful careers and build families of their owns. Lois was there every step of the way for every milestone: Todd’s marriage to Tonia in 2004 and the birth of their son, Ian in 2008; John’s marriage to Heather with the addition of Madyson into the family in 2012 and the birth of Kinzley in 2013; and most recently the marriage of Sarah to Andrew in 2017 and Alexander and Briceon’s growing commitment in 2018. In her later life, Lois’s retirement centered around spending time with her husband, Al, and watching her granddaughter Kinzley. God was kind enough to bless Gram and Pop Pop with three beautiful grandchildren that will always be their pride and joy, Madyson, Ian, and Kinzley. Some the of the best memories include the endless spoiling that occurred from both Gram and Pop on the grandchildren, as well as the wonderful trips that were taken as husband and wife to Hawaii and Surfside, SC. While Lois’s physical body is no longer here on Earth with us, her presence is here in all our hearts and this will keep her by our side forever. Next time you see a cardinal outside, remember to say hello for it is a visitor from heaven coming to give you love when you most need it.
