Lois J. (Lynch) Layman

May 6, 1932 ~ April 10, 2022 (age 89)

Obituary

After living 89 years, Lois Jean Layman took her last breath on this earth on April 10, 2022 in Berlin, PA and her next breath in Heaven where she will be greeted by her Lord and Savior saying, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” She will have a joyful reunion with many who have gone before her including her husband, Bob Layman, who left her side twenty-two years ago.
Lois was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother born on May 6, 1932 in Akron, OH to Enos and Devona Lynch joining her older sister, Maxine. In the summer of 1947, she moved to Purcell, PA at the age of 15 to live with her Aunt and Uncle. Soon thereafter, she met Bob Layman and they married in 1949. Though young and facing some difficult times, they raised four children, all of whom turned out to be assets to society, rather than liabilities. Those surviving children are Robert A. Layman (Julia) of Everett, PA; Victoria Layman Clark (Barry) of Jacksonville, FL; Karen Layman Scherer (Mark) of Jacksonville, FL and Kenneth R. Layman (Carolyn) of Palm Desert, CA. Lois is also survived by grandchildren Bobby Layman (Holly), Beth Herman (Dan), Wesley Layman (Lori), Zachary Clark (Courtney), Gabriel Clark (Shannon), Whitney Johnson, Brooke Bryant (Bernard), Elizabeth Layman and Christiana Layman; great grandchildren Luke, Kaitlyn, Leah, Makenna, Trinity, Wesley Jr., Annalise, Malachi, MaKinsey, Marcus, Bernard Jr., Brooklyn and Breyonna; two special nieces Elaine and Lynn; step-grandchildren Emily, Bailey and Dakota.

She was preceded in death by her sister Maxine and a great granddaughter Alexis Layman.

Lois worked for many years at the sewing factory while sacrificially loving and caring for her family. She was known for her kindness and rarely "rested on her laurels", always asking how she could help. She was an active parishioner of Buck Valley Church, singing and serving. She took great pride in doing the most mundane chores and loved decorating her home. She discovered many talents later in life including painting beautiful pictures, basket weaving and jewelry-making. Lois was a member of the Red Hat Mountain Mamas.  She was known for her cooking ability and loved feeding others. If shopping were an Olympic sport, Lois would have gold medaled.

Funeral Service will be held on Tuesday, April 19, 2022 at 11:00 A.M. at the Fairview Christian Church with Pastor Bobby Layman officiating.
Burial will be held at Fairview Cemetery.
