Obituary

Alice Mabel Fait Lohr, affectionately known to many as Mabel Alice after the Pastor reversed the order of her first and middle name during her baptism, died on December 23, 2018 in Virginia Beach, VA. She passed away peacefully in Virginia Beach General Hospital from pneumonia.

Alice was born May 23, 1928 on Ore Hill Farm in Gravel Pit, PA to Leona Kelly Fait and Lawrence Sylvester Fait. A couple of years later Alice became the oldest child she was alway meant to be when her sister Jeanne was born. Raised from humble beginnings on the farm, Alice quickly found her green thumb for gardening, though her love of animals was when observing from arms length. She was a graduate of the 1946 class from Hyndman High School in Hyndman, PA. It was not long after graduation that Alice met the love of her life, Raymond E. Lohr, who had just arrived home from serving in World War II. Raymond quickly learned Alice was a force to be reckoned with and rightly so, “let her be boss” was Raymonds saying. The couple married August 27, 1947 in Cumberland, MD and enjoyed over 63 years of wedded bliss together.

During her lifetime, Alice worked as a manager of Silco Department Stores, at Hedstrom and an entrepreneur and business owner of the Village News, but her greatest job was being a Mom. While Alice spent most of her life in Buffalo Mills and Bedford, Pennsylvania, she also lived in Cheswick, PA, Olmstead Falls and Brook Park, Ohio and at the end of her life in Virginia Beach, VA. She was involved with Civil Defense in Brook Park, Ohio, Eastern Star in Ohio and the VFW Ladies Auxilary in PA.

Alice was a firecracker and fiercely competitive with a love of card and word games - from Canasta to Scrabble to puzzles! Her enjoyment of winning was equally as entertaining as her disdain for losing, though no matter what she was a good sport and always had great patience for teaching her grandchildren how to play. She LOVED her police scanner and would promptly tell anyone in the room to “Listen. Listen!” as she turned up the volume during activity. Alice had a light in her eyes and a face of surprise that brought joy to everyone in her presence, which made playing the lotto and scratchers overwhelming fun- Alice sure did love those tips and slots!!

Alice is survived by three of her children Connie Keel, Raymond E. Lohr, Jr. (Joyce Fotchman), and Sara Lohr DeLutis (Jim); her grandchildren Yvonne Lohr, Billy Lohr (Stephanie), Oliver Keel, Francesca DeLutis, Rosanna DeLutis, and Amanda Kemp (David); her great grandchildren Kayla Dail, Brittney Lohr, Heidi Lohr, Brayden Lohr, Jacob Kemp and Jolene Kemp. In heaven she joins her late husband Raymond E. Lohr, son Michael Douglas Lohr, grandson Lawrence Oliver Keel, and sister Jeanne Fait Stoner.

A service will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 11 AM at Christ Lutheran Church in Madley, PA led by Pastor Ryan Viands. A luncheon will be held immediately after the service. Following the luncheon, a burial of Alice’s ashes will be held at Milligans Cove Christian Church. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Christ Lutheran Church, in her honor.

Alice Mabel Lohr was a matriarch and in a single word, could be best described as hardworking. She lived a full, happy life surrounded by those who loved her up until her last moments on earth. While she is no longer with us, the immortal words she always used to wrap up a goodbye, “Be Good”, live on forever. We hope you will join us in celebrating Alice’s 90 years of life and don’t forget to “Be good!”

I was sorry to hear the passing of Alice. She had a special place within my heart along with Raymond, and their son Mike. Many times a friendly smile graced my morning at the Village News along with a loving moment of joy as Alice took the time to speak with me. Even as a young child, helping family members chop wood on Alice and Raymond's land. Alice made sure everyone was graced by down home food, from her kitchen. I know the heart grows weary after a time here on earth. But there are moments where special people gracefully touch other people. Alice and Raymond were those special people who touched my heart. Now they are reunited in Heaven and waiting for someday for others to join their table of Heavenly food along with the Lord Jesus. May the tears you have experienced with the loss; be tears of laughter one day as you reflect on the blessings Alice was to so many she touched. Thomas Turner - Tom
