Lois M. Hein | October 26, 1929 – September 7, 2020.
Lois Hein, 90, longtime Homewood resident, passed away peacefully and surrounded by her family in her home on September 7, 2020. Her leaving was preceded by her husband Wallace Hein in 2019. She is survived by her children David, Richard, and Randall Hein, as well as grandchildren Erika Cobb, Matt Hein, Ryan Hein, Melanie Hein, and Kevin Hein.
Lois was a kind, generous, well-loved woman, always putting others before herself. She enjoyed trip planning and traveling, and nary went a year without a vacation. Entertaining company and cooking for a crowd was another one of her specialties. Every holiday she could be found in the kitchen, bright and early, preparing food- no one ever went hungry in the Hein residence.
She remained bright, active, and independent into her golden years. Lois played tennis until very recently, maintained a tidy home, drove herself to errands and appointments, and enjoyed weekly games of bridge with her many friends.
She will be greatly missed. Her spirit remains eternal, living on forever in the hearts and memories of every person her kindness has touched.
A “Celebration of Life” may be planned in the future when it is safe to gather.
