Obituary of Lois Joann Kinner
Lois Joann Kinner was born on November 5th, 1935, to her parents, Walter and Violet. The only girl in her family, she was raised in the house her father built from the ground up off Woodward Drive in West Seneca. When Lois was visiting family in Pennsylvania, she met her best friend and the love of her life, Donald, and the pair wed on June 16th, 1956. Lois and Donald then moved into another home her father built on Washington Street, where she would remain for the rest of her life. The pair expanded their family with the addition of their four wonderful children: Madonna, Kathryn, Michael, and Gregory, and her six beautiful grandchildren and great-grandchild.
Family meant everything to Lois. Not a day went by where she was not doing something for her family. She did everything she could to ensure her children had everything they needed, from a good meal to a great education. Her love and family expanded out to friends and community members, and her thoughtfulness knew no bounds.
Lois was also very in touch with her faith. When her and Donald wed, she converted to Catholicism and remained a dedicated parishioner with the Fourteen Holy Helpers Faith Community. She had a collection of angels, including little “worry angels” she would give to people when she was thinking of people or praying for their health and safety. Lois and Donald also had a love for travel and adventure, going out wherever the world took them. From Hawaii to Scotland to the Panama Canal, Lois loved being able to see what the world had to offer.
Lois will always be remembered as a very thoughtful, caring, devoted woman. Devoted to her faith, her family, and all who love her, forever.
