Lois A. Thorwart | 78

August 20, 1944 - February 13, 2023

Lois A. Thorwart, 78, of 114 Capri Road, St. Marys, passed away Monday, February 13, 2023 at Pinecrest Manor.

She was born August 20, 1944, in St. Marys, daughter of the late John and Winifred Bauer Schreiber.  Lois was a lifelong resident of the area and a graduate of Central Catholic High School, Class of 1962.

On March 2, 1965, in the Sacred Heart Church, Lois married Daniel P. Thorwart, who survives.  They were blessed with nearly 58 years of marriage.

Along with her loving husband, Lois is survived by two daughters: Deborah Auman (Tom) of St. Marys and Michelle Mannino (Joe) of Warriors Mark, PA; two sons: Michael J. Thorwart (Teresa) of Holland, PA and Joseph D. Thorwart (Deanna) of St. Marys; seven grandchildren: Kylie Centore (Vincent), Samantha Thorwart, Michael Thorwart, Daniel Thorwart, Zachary Thorwart, Noah Thorwart, and Riley Mannino; two sisters: Mary Lee Engel (Tom) of St. Marys and Laura Kilmer (Galen) of Sabula; four brothers: Donald Schreiber (Jean), Thomas “Peeps” Schreiber (Judy), Steve Schreiber (Judy), and William Schreiber, all of St. Marys; and by several nieces and nephews.

Lois was a member of the Sacred Heart Church.  She enjoyed baking and being outdoors where she would admire all that nature had to offer, in particular, flowers and animals.  She had a strong affinity towards all animals and would often feed the squirrels through her window.  Nothing brought her more joy however than the time she spent with her family, especially her grandchildren.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in the Sacred Heart Church on Friday, February 17, 2023, at 10:15 AM, with the Rev. Kevin Holland, officiating.  Burial will follow in the St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.
