Lois enjoyed reading, knitting, crossword puzzles, spending time with family and relaxing at her shore house in Bayville.  

Lois’ greatest joy came from her family.  She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother; she took great pride in caring for her family.  Lois was from the “greatest-generation” which lived through the best and the worst of times, she was a constant and unwavering source of love, wisdom, strength and guidance for her entire family and will be deeply missed.  She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Eugene, and her son, Richard.  She is survived by her loving son, Robert, and his wife, Eileen, from Wyckoff; her daughter-in-law, Dona, from Mountainside; and her daughter, Carol, and her husband, Scot Worswick, from Mountainside.  Lois was a proud grandmother to ten grandchildren: Robert, Elizabeth, Matthew and Melissa; Ashley, Kimberly and Courtney; Zachary, Billy and Kacie.  She was also a great-grandmother to Evamarie Morales Osieja.  In addition, she is survived by her loving nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
