Obituary for Joan M. Lohr

Joan M. Lohr, 78, passed away peacefully in her sleep surrounded by her loving family on Thursday, November 29th, 2018 after a long fight with lung cancer. Born on July 3rd, 1940 in Englewood, NJ, she was the daughter of Arthur Sr. and Margaret Lamme and the wife of David E. Lohr. Joan worked as a real estate broker for over 20 years, and afterwards worked in the retail industry at companies such as Wal-Mart, Walgreens and most recently Dollar Tree. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star in New Jersey where she held the position of Worthy Matron.

Raised in Palisades Park, New Jersey and a graduate of Leonia High School. She met her love on a blind date on New Years Eve. She often bragged about marrying her sailor to travel the world only to stay in Virginia Beach almost their entire lives and making deep roots. Dave did take her on a trip to get her passport stamped just to run into neighbors was one of her many stories she loved to tell.

Joan was known by everyone as a kind and giving woman. She had a big heart and loved everyone. Everyone she met was a friend, and all her friends became family to her. She loved playing bingo and could be found playing at the Centerville bingo hall. Joan was also fond of cooking for her grandchildren and each one had a certain dish that they loved for her to make. Her greatest joy in life was her grandchildren. Her greatest accomplishments, however, were being a wife, mother, grandmother, and ombudsman.

She is survived by: her loving husband of 54 years, David Lohr; sons, Jefferey Lohr and Michael Lohr; daughter, Susan McFarland; favorite son-in-law, Michael McFarland; brother, Arthur Lamme, Jr.; sister, Linda Lamme; sisters-in-law: Gail VanWart, Ruth Perry and Sharon Howard; her 4 grandchildren: Tyler Lohr, Jacob McFarland, Joshua McFarland, and Joseph McFarland, as well as several nieces and nephews that she loved as if they were her own.

She was preceded in death by her beloved mother, her father, and brothers-in-law James Perry and James Lohr.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 11:00 am at the Christian Embassy located at 1208 N. Centerville Turnpike, Chesapeake, Virginia 23320.
