Lois Jean Munro, of Hanover, passed away peacefully at Hanover and District Hospital on Friday, October 27, 2023. She was 83.
Born in Hanover on January 23, 1940 to the late Ivan and Norma (nee Weber) Alexander. Lois was employed at a variety of places like Buckeye Factory and Triangle Discount, but her favorite career was raising her children along side of her husband Alan. Through the years, she overcame a lot and her health continually declined after the passing of her husband. She could be found as her son Jim's right hand woman while he was on duty for deliveries. She enjoyed the drives and all the people she met along the way. She had a great smile and passed along great values and memories to her children...including her poking your ribs to tease you to make you smile.
Survived by son Jim Munro of Hanover, daughters Wendy (Peter) Reed of Owen Sound and Mary (Keith) Henderson of Barrie. Special grandma of Christopher (Ashley), Jessica, Amanda (Shawn), Ryan (Amanda), Melissa (Kevin), Alexander and Matthew as well as her 11 great grandchildren. Remembered by her sister Joan Osthoff of Hanover. Predeceased by her husband Alan and her grandson Joshua.
To honour her wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family inurnment will be held at the Hanover Cemetery - Columbarium at a later date.
Memorial donations to the Diabetes Association, Heart & Stroke Foundation or to the Hanover & District Hospital Foundation were appreciated as expressions of sympathy. Arrangements entrusted to the care of Mighton Funeral Home, Hanover.
