Lois had a wonderful heart and a deep concern for others, especially those less fortunate. She cared for 13 foster children over her lifetime, worked at the Salvation Army serving the homeless and at the former Booth Home for Unwed Mothers in Pittsburgh. Lois was proud to have marched during the civil rights movement and was steadfast liberal in her political views. Lois will be fondly remembered for her feisty nature, sense of humor, and as a loving mother and sister.

(Berna) Cristi, of Seminole, FL; grandchildren, Thomas (Kayla), Michael (Michelle), Zachary (Stephanie), Clinton, Jr., Clayton, Kayla (Raheem) and Erica; great grandchildren, Brody, Ava, Jett, Marlo, Lily and True; sister, Dorothy (Robert) Wunderley of Liberty Borough; numerous nieces and nephews.
