Lois Drexler

January 19, 1936 — April 28, 2023

Lois Jean Drexler, 87, passed away peacefully on April 28, 2023.

Lois was born on January 19, 1936, to John and Ida May Stanley. She grew up in the rolling hills of Coraopolis, PA with her sisters Leah and Helen.

Lois attended McKees Rocks High School where she met her high school sweetheart and lifelong partner Barry L Drexler. They married in 1956. Together they raised four daughters. Lois was an amazing example to her girls- demonstrating kindness, generosity, perseverance, morality, and faith in God.

Lois was predeceased by her parents, along with her sister Leah Way. She is survived by her sister Helen (John) Ozga and nieces and nephews. She leaves behind her devoted husband Barry Drexler along with her four girls: Karen (Bob) Chalanick, LuAnn (Stephen) Morin, Donna (John)Whitwell and Jan (Rob) Kovacevic. Lois was “Grammy” to 10 grandchildren (Brett, Kara, Samantha, Chad, Jeremy, Brad, Shelby, Josh, Niko, and Peter). Her great grandchildren are Asher and James Chalanick, Hawkins and Tenley Tabb, Henry Drexler Morin, Riley Morin and Theo Kovacevic.

Lois was so committed to community service. She was a generous, dedicated, and productive leader in the Red Cross, Christian Education and Community Food Pantries.

She loved to tend to her beautiful gardens- which were overflowing with vibrant colors and brought her much joy. An avid golfer and bowler as well- Lois made long- lasting friendships on the links and in the bowling alleys. If you were fortunate enough to know Lois- you know what a real friend that she was- simply so good and nice to all.

Please join others at a memorial service at the Evangelical Lutheran Church at 43 S Church Street, Waynesboro PA 17268. The service will be held on June 3, 2023 at 2:00pm.
