Lois Lapper (née Barkowitz), 81, passed away Saturday morning, October 27, 2012. Lois was a native of Pittsburgh, PA, and shared a wonderful marriage for over 56 years, with her husband, Al. Together they've lived in Rancho Mirage, CA for the past 34 years. Lois, a beautiful woman, had been one of the earliest television fashion models, appearing on The Today Show in the 1950s. She was a vivacious, gregarious, independent gal who successfully navigated the NY fashion world before starting a family with her husband in New Rochelle, NY. There, she raised a son, Steven and a daughter, Suzanne. Lois was an avid and talented golfer who left everyone she ever played with a smile and a laugh, regardless of their ability. Lois loved to travel and made many, many friends wherever she went. Her characteristic independence and strong will left an indelible mark on most whose paths she crossed. Her energy filled every corner of the room. Though she is survived by her loving husband, son and three grandchildren, Andrew, Sydney, and Whitney, she'll be missed by many.

 

Shonna Perry, a close personal friend said, "Lois Lapper was a Champion of Women's Golf, and fought the effects of Parkinson's like a warrior".
