Lois Joanne Lauber of Tofield, AB was born on December 15, 1940 in the Lee Roth home, presently the farm where Vic and Charlene Roth reside. She passed away on January 23, 2020, shortly after her 79th birthday. She was the first daughter born to David and Velma (Yoder) Lehman.
Lois had a child like enthusiasm for life, always ready and waiting for an adventure, even if it meant tenting in the mountains with her grandchildren in her seventies! She had a genuine love for others, especially her family. Throughout her school years, church and young peoples activities, she grew to know and love William Joseph Lauber. They were married on June 8, 1960.
Holding her precious memories close to their hearts are her children Mardelle (Dale) Oslund, Rod Lauber, Charlene (Vic) Roth; grandchildren Geoffrey Oslund, Jennelle (Clint) Young; Gillian Oslund, Melissa (Rhys) Jones, Miriam (Keith) Neufeld, Sawyer (Tori) Roth, and Jordan Roth; as well as eight great-grandchildren; sister Marilyn (Rudy) Huebert; in-laws Ben (Pearl), Calvin, Murray, Byron (Leslie), Phyllis (Geoff) Milligan; as well as many nieces, nephews, and special friends.
She was predeceased by her husband William in 2005, after 45 years of marriage; her parents; infant brother; brother-in-law Leo; sisters-in-law Ellen and Sylvia; and one niece Michelle Lauber.
Lois attended Salem Mennonite Church. She attended singing tours with Paul Voegtlin in her youth, taught many years of Sunday School, Bible School, and Pioneer Girls which she poured her heart into, and she served on the hostess committee for the church.
Lois passed away with her family by her side. She kept her positive outlook and love for life throughout this past year during her battle with cancer. She has left a hole in our hearts and will be greatly missed.
A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Monday, February 3, 2020 at the Salem Mennonite Church (1 mile north of intersection TWP492 – Range Road 184). Interment will have taken place at Salem Mennonite Cemetery.
