Lois J. McDonald


Lois, 93, formerly of Sun City West, AZ, passed away on Friday, April 17, 2020, at RoseWood Village in Charlottesville, VA. Many activities filled her life - teaching, coaching the SCW Swim Team, philanthropy, dancing in numerous musicals in SCW, and spending time with her grandchildren.

She modeled a DIY attitude that lives on in her survivors: daughters Jill, Leslie, Kay (her husband Pat Humes,) son Kim (his wife Tana), grandchildren Lindsay, Erica, Conor, Hayden, Chiara, Teix and great grandchildren: Ellie, Archie and Adrian.

Lois was an avid reader, athlete and curious learner which led naturally to her career as an educator in fitness. Her final act of educating was the donation of her body for scientific research. Her family thanks the staff at RoseWood for their compassionate care and Hospice of the Piedmont for their support.

A memorial page celebrating her life will be posted on Facebook in the near future for all to contribute.
