Beloved wife of the late William Hemmrich; loving mother of Lila Suhr, Mary (Luke) Cacioppo and Barbara (Terry) Polowy; Loving grandmother of William (Angela) Suhr, Michelle (Jacob) Weber, Daniel (Traci) Cacioppo, Tracey (Christopher) Umentum, Stacey (Patrick) Doherty and Christopher (Emily) Polowy; Loving great-grandmother of Trevor and Racquel Suhr, Claire Weber, Mia and Ava Cacioppo, Ryan, Colin and Aiden Doherty, Lauren and Nicolette Zdenovec, Courtney Umentum and Carter and Noah Polowy; fond sister of the late Jeanette and Clarence Lohrbach.
Lois experienced a myriad of jobs from child-care, making candy, bakery and retail sales. In her leisure she enjoyed ping-pong, bowling, dartball and last but not least cards and playing bingo. She never went anywhere without a deck of cards in her purse.
Most of all, her family was everything to her.
