Lois Kolyer Gregory, 85, passed away on Saturday, August 13, 2016 at her home in Peachtree City, Ga., surrounded by her family.
She was the wife of Robert Gregory. They were blessed to be married for 65 years. Lois was born in Detroit, Mich. to Muriel and George Kolyer. She was raised in Lakewood, Ohio and attended Ohio Wesleyan University. After her marriage in 1951, she moved to Stow, Ohio where she raised her children. She moved to Flemington, N.J. in 1964; Intervale, N.H. in 1976; New Bern, N.C. in 1985; and Peachtree City, Ga. in 2014.
She was employed by RGA, Inc. as an executive administrator until her retirement in 1994. In addition, she was owner and operator of a 200 year old country inn located in the White Mountains of northern New Hampshire from 1976 to 1985. She was an active member, leader, and teacher in her church wherever she lived. She used her gifts as a leader to serve local community organizations, including the Memorial Hospital Board of Directors in North Conway, the New Bern Genealogy Society, the Fairfield Harbor HRC and Yacht Club, and the Order of Eastern Star. She was a proud member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
She enjoyed playing golf, bridge, and traveling the world with her husband. She used her organizational skills to meet the needs of those around her. The most important things in her life were her faith in Jesus Christ and her family. She will be remembered for instilling in her family an appreciation of their legacy through her genealogy work.
