Lois Marie Weber, 81, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday (Nov. 3, 2015) at Rochester General Hospital.
Mrs. Weber was born on March 29, 1934 in Andover to Carroll and Georgianna (Bines) Ruger. She was a 1952 graduate of Andover Central School. On Dec. 13, 1953, she married Harry G. Weber, who predeceased her on Feb. 9, 1989.
Lois managed the Alfred State College Bookstore from 1964 until her retirement in 1994.
Lois is survived by three sons, Gus D. (Mary Ann) Weber and Brian Keith (Elizabeth) Weber, both of Andover and Charles D. Weber of Bristol, Conn.; two daughters, Carol Ann (David) Ormsby of Andover and Glenna Marie (Russell) Godown of Walworth; two sisters-in-law, Margaret “Maggie” Bailey and Sandra “Sandy” Hunt, both of Wellsville; 11 grandchildren, Gus D. (Juleen) Weber, II, Georgiana (Wes) Hilfiker, Donald (Jolene) Green, Brian Robert Weber, Douglas Keith (Jessica) Weber, Christopher Weber, Andrew Weber, Ashley Marie Weber, Daniel (Donna) Godown, Jamie Marie (Sam) Godown and Melanie (Paul) Godown; 14 great grandchildren, Ardell Spinder, Trenton Green, Carter Green, Rylan Green, Hudson Green, Dahlia Green, Baylin Green, Odin Green, Georgiana Hilfiker, Ryan Weber, Aidan Weber, Michaela Weber, Bradon Godown and Elijah Godown; and several nieces and nephews.
Lois enjoyed the thrill of traveling with her husband. Among the many destinations were Australia, Europe, Alaska, Virginia Beach and the regular annual outing to Long Lake in the Adirondacks. Lois and Harry would hitch up the travel trailer and along with their children, take in the sights via the camping experience. Family was so very important to her. She was famous for her many “Loisisms” and to her grandchildren she was the “Spunky Old Lady”. She knew she achieved her objective when she gained the response, “Did you just say that?”
Additionally, she was a longtime member, board member and Past President of the NYS College Book Store Association and served on the Andover Central School Board. She was also a member of the Andover United Methodist Church.
Visitation will be held on Friday from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at Baker-Swan Funeral Home in Andover. The memorial service will be on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at the funeral home with Rev. Christian Mattison of the Andover Presbyterian Church, officiating. Burial will follow in Hillside Cemetery.
