Lois K. McLaughlin
March 3, 1928 ~ September 9, 2023 (age 95) 95 Years Old
Lois K. McLaughlin, 95, of the Presbyterian Village of Hollidaysburg, died at 9:00 PM on Saturday, September 9, 2023, after an extended illness.
She was born March 3, 1928, in Altoona, the daughter of Samuel S. and Edna F. (Davis) McLaughlin. She was predeceased by a brother, Kenneth S., and was the last surviving member of her family.
Miss McLaughlin was a 1946 graduate of Punxsutawney High School and later graduated from the Altoona School of Commerce. She first worked at the Universal Commercial Investment Trust and later as a bookkeeper for the Ford Motor Credit Company, from where she retired in 1983.
She enjoyed traveling, gardening, and embroidery, was an avid reader, and rooted for the Pirates, Steelers, and Penn State Football. She was an active member of the former Third Presbyterian Church, Altoona, where she served as an Elder and a Deacon, and was a current member of Providence Presbyterian Church.
Lois lived her life with grace and humility, always caring for others, including her aging parents, her ailing brother, Ken, after his retirement, and the people served by her church. She always looked for the good in people and raised the spirit of those around her with her positive outlook and friendly smile. Lois will be truly missed by all who knew her.
