With the hope of the resurrection, Lois Ann Fitzgerald passed away May 9, 2019 at her home. She is survived by her children, Courtney Spezia (Paul), Christopher Fitzgerald (Jennifer), as well as her 7 grandchildren: Paul, Mia, Benjamin, and Peter Spezia, and Madeline, Meg, and Erin Fitzgerald. She is also survived by her siblings: Linda Henderson, Robert Foss, Ernest Foss (Rosie), and David Foss (Priscilla), her brother-in-law William Fitzgerald, and sister-in-law, Betty Fitzgerald, and many beloved nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents Ernest and Norma Foss, her husband John, and her daughter Allison Marie as well as her siblings and in-laws: Ellen and John Fitzgerald, Duane and Teddy Foss, Delores Wynne, Spencer and Darlene Foss, Robert Henderson, Sharon Foss, Rosalie and Don Sorensen,  and many beloved sister and brother-in-laws.

She was born in Whitehall, WI on March 10, 1935 and went to Whitehall High School.  She came to Saint Louis along with her sister Linda and worked near the Fox Theatre and Saint Louis University. She married John Fitzgerald (Jack) , and they moved to Florissant, MO where she went to work as a waitress at the Officer’s Club near Lambert Airport for her friends, Bill and Maxine Jordan. When this closed,  she worked at Jordan’s restaurant until her retirement. She then helped to care for her grandchildren while they were young.  She was a wonderful person who dedicated all her time and effort at caring lovingly for her children and grandchildren. She loved to travel, to sew, cross-stitch , and do crafts of any sort. She also liked to gamble at the boat and play cards. She liked watching TV like Raymond and Jeopardy, old movies, and she was a great cook. Also, at Christmas she made loads of cookies which she doled out in boxes. She had compassion for everyone, often to tears, even when she didn’t know them, and would lend a helping hand anytime. Her faith was very important to her as well, and she lived as such.

The visitation will take place on Wednesday, May 15, 2019  at St. Cletus Church at 2705 Zumbehl Road, Saint Charles, MO, 63301 at 9:00 am followed by Mass at 10:00 am, and funeral lunch. The interment will follow at Sacred Heart Cemetery in Florissant, MO.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Lois's name can be made to the Society of St. Vincent De Paul.

    Courtney and Chris and family,
    Where to start. I remember back in the Western Sizzlin’ days and Lois providing Christmas cookies. Coming to the house and enjoying talking to her about her doll house hobby, cross stitching, she was such a straight talker, an avid Cards fan. Absolutely loved her. And she loved her kiddos and grandkids. Whenever I would see her she would proudly tell me about all the latest accomplishments in the family.
    You will be missed, Mrs. Fitz. Rest well and tell Jack and Allison hello.

    My mother, Ruth, worked with Lois at the Regal Cafe on North Grand before she met her husband. I remember how proud Lois was of her engagement ring. I will hold her family in prayer in their time of sorrow.

    Sending so much love to you, Courtney and Paul, Chris and Jennifer. And to all your kids, now grown. Your Mom and Dad were so important to me all my life. True inspiration of what family can be.
    As Grandma Fitz would say, “goodbye, good luck and God bless ye.”
