Lois A. Lehr departed this earthly experience Sunday, July 14, 2019 with her family by her side.
She was born April 18, 1931 in York, PA to Ruth Mellon Bryan and Walter S. Bryan of North York.
Lois married Richard R. Lehr of East York on June 21st, 1953. After 12 years of part time studies and simultaneously raising three children, she graduated from West Chester State University in 1974. After a satisfying career as an optician she retired in 1998.
Those that knew her well, appreciated her sweet disposition and strong intellectual curiosity with an interest in current affairs, especially those of a political nature. She had a desire for the furtherance of God’s kingdom and made the best pumpkin pies!
