Lois Reichert

April 15, 1932 — March 18, 2022

Lois Lovetta Kagy Reichert of Upper Arlington, Ohio and formerly of Attica, Ohio passed away on March 18, 2022 in Columbus, Ohio just 28 days away from her 90th birthday. Born on April 15,1932, the 11th of 14 children of the late Clyde and Clady Weaver Kagy, she  grew up in Bloomville, Ohio on the family farm.

Lois graduated in 1950 from Bloomville High School, and, on October 28th of the same year, she married William Franklin “Bill” Reichert. Together, Lois and Bill lovingly raised four children and built a life in agriculture. They started out by farming land in Bloomville before owning and operating a dairy farm in Berlin, Wisconsin, and then, finally, their farm in Attica. While living in Wisconsin, Lois worked at Sans Knitting, Ripon Good Cookies, and waitressed at Bel-Air Club. After returning to Ohio, she worked as a physical therapy assistant at Tiffin Developmental Center from which she retired. Following retirement, during the summer months, Lois and Bill delighted local festival and fair goers with delicious treats from their new business, Reichert Concessions, and they relaxed at their home in Sebring, Florida during the winter months. Eventually, they sold the farm and concession businesses and moved to Upper Arlington, Ohio to be closer to their children and grandchildren.

Lois loved flowers, antiques, and experimenting with recipes. She also enjoyed landscaping, decorating, entertaining, and playing cards with family and friends. Lois was a determined, supportive, and patient person with a strong work ethic and moral compass.

Preceding her in death were her parents, husband, and son, Charles Reichert; seven brothers, Berlin, Kenneth, Joseph, Donald, Gilbert, Forest, and Carlton Kagy; two sisters, Mildred Kagy Ellis and Joyce Kagy Brandenburg.

She is survived by son, William Curtis (Diane) Reichert; two daughters, Norma (Charles) Butterfield and Colleen (Clark) Sturgill; daughter-in-law, JoElla Reichert; eight grandchildren, Rachel (Jimmy) McClellan, Katarina Reichert, Morgan Reichert, William Maxwell Reichert, Markus Reichert, Kirsten Sturgill, Corbin Sturgill, and Lauren Butterfield; great-grandson, Carson McClellan; two brothers, Stephen and Merle Kagy; two sisters, Eunice Kagy Nagel and Marlene Kagy Guerney. Also, she is survived by a large, loving, extended family.
