BELOIT – Lois Marie (Schmitt) Gengler was born March 29, 1935 at the Schmitt family farmhouse near Tipton, KS. On July 7, 2020, she passed peacefully at the Gengler family farmhouse north of Beloit, Kansas, her beloved home for the last 60 years. Lois was the 4th of 7 children born to Nicholas and Madeline (Matheis) Schmitt. Lois attended Tipton Catholic schools, graduating as Valedictorian of her class. Lois always had a servant heart, displayed at an early age when she stayed at home and turned down a full college scholarship to help care for her family after her mother passed away due to illness when Lois was only 14 years old. Many people benefitted from Lois’s many talents and serving attitude throughout her life, whether it was from countless hours spent baking delicious food, serving at banquets or funeral dinners with the Ladies Guild, creating, altering and mending countless clothing items for family and friends over the years and creating beautiful quilts on her own or with the St. John’s Quilters group she looked so forward to meeting with every Tuesday at the parish offices for many years. If help was needed, Lois was there working tirelessly and giving of her time, talent and treasure.
