May 20, 1926 - February 8, 2017
Lois Jean Bening, age 90, of Toledo, passed away February 8, 2017. Lois was a bookkeeper and housewife. She married Melvin Bening in 1968. They spent many years at their Long Lake cottage relaxing with family and friends. She and Melvin attended St Lucas Lutheran Church and spent many years volunteering their time there. Lois was a loving daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt. She missed Melvin and her son Mike very much as they passed way too early in life. She loved them very much and thought about them often. Even in her later years, she was spry and stubborn as she ever. Her favorite person to pick on was her 87yoa little brother, Dick. She always made sure he knew she was his older sister and she could tell him what to do. Lois loved listening to audio books. She was enthralled with the stories they told and would listen to them repeatedly. Lois enjoyed living in the Merit House recently along with the caring staff and her daily talks with them. One of her favorite memories was going on a trip to the Toledo Zoo this past fall. Thank you to the staff at Merit House for making her last year comfortable. Lois had a very special friend in Judy, who was a blessing for all she did for her. Judy was always there to talk and give companionship and thanks is not enough. Lois was preceded in death by her parents, John and Florence, sister Phyllis Ernest, husband Melvin and son, Michael. She is survived by her brother Dick (Marilyn) Ingalsbe, step daughter Melva Nelson, grandkids, great grandkids, nephews, nieces and other special people in her life. There will be a graveside service only with internment of her ashes on February 11, 2017 at 11 a.m. at Toledo Memorial Park. A luncheon will immediately follow at St Lucas Lutheran church. In lieu of flowers, the family asks memorial donations be made to St. Lucas Lutheran Church or Merit House of Toledo. Please leave a condolence message for the family at CoyleFuneralHome.com.
