Lois is preceded in death by her sister Joan DeMaio, and daughters Rosemary (Harte) Blansette and Theresa (Harte) Wackstein.

For many years, Lois dedicated herself as a Federal Reserve Bank processor, an occupation that she excelled in with diligence and care. After retirement, she and Patrick relocated to Bethlehem.
