Lois  Yukich


Lois Yukich, formerly of Hermitage, passed away Monday morning, Aug. 12, 2019 in her home in Snow Hill, N.C., after an extended illness. She was 90 years old.
Mrs. Yukich was born Sept. 25, 1928, in Sharon, a daughter of Frank "Pop" and Kathryn C. Banish Steibly. A resident of the Shenango Valley until December 2014, Lois attended the former St. Ann's Parochial Grade School, Farrell, and was a 1946 graduate of Farrell High School.
She completed her education at the Shenango Valley Commercial Institute, Sharon. Prior to becoming a homemaker, Lois was employed as a secretary at Sharon Steel's former Farrell plant.
She was a wonderful cook and always entertained with her quick wit and sense of humor. Mrs. Yukich was a lover of polka, gospel, and country music, and she enjoyed doing word search puzzles.
Lois was a member of the Slovene National Benefit Society and the First Catholic Ladies Association.
Her husband, Frank Yukich, whom she married July 7, 1951, passed away July 7, 2011. After his death in 2011, Lois eventually moved to the home of her daughter, Janet, where she lived until her passing.
She is survived by two daughters, Bobbie Campoli and her husband James, of Hermitage, and Janet Skelton and her husband Charles, of Snow Hill, N.C.; a son, Frank Yukich and his wife Eva, of Long Beach, Calif.; four grandchildren, Jimmy Campoli, Nicole (Randy) Ketcham, Amanda (Dean) Rihel, and Frank Yukich Jr; two great-grandchildren, Haden and Natalie Ketcham; two sisters, Dolores Toth, of Hermitage, and Mary Lou D'Amico, of Orlando, Fla., and 14 nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents and husband, Lois was preceded in death by a sister, Kathy Hughes; and a brother, Gerald Steibly.
