Lois Cheryl Baizen

August 30, 1950November 18, 2020

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.

I loved my cousin Lois. Our families were always together, three Schwartz’s and three Mandelbaums. While Lois was ten months younger she was much more savvy about the world. All those secret things she told me about and later we even smoked our first cigarette together in her basement in Revere. In high school my friends who adored her and I hung out with her and her friends on Countryside Lane. Then she met Larry and they were always together from then on. She was even connected to my wife Arleen from both living across from Lois’s grandparents Aaron and Sonia on Damon Road in Medford and then later Lois being friends with all the Medford girls. Lois was funny and larger than life. We will always miss her and may she Rest In Peace

I don’t even know where to begin! Lois was like a second mother to me growing up and she always welcomed me with open arms! I was the well behaved best friend of Tracey and she loved me for it!! Going to temple or hanging at the marine shop for more years than I Can remember! I will miss you but at least your are with your sweet Larry, sending so much love to all of you during this difficult time! ♥️
