Lois E. Sollenberger passed away on Thursday, May 16, 2013, at Menno Haven, Chambersburg, PA. She was born on September 25, 1919, the third child of Willis M. and Ivy Hartman Rice. Her childhood home was in Zullinger, PA, and she graduated from Washington Township High School in 1938. She married Norman W. Sollenberger on January 25, 1941. They worked as a team on Norlo Farm, now Norlo Park; at New Guilford Brethren in Christ Church, in many different capacities; in numerous dairy organizations; and in parenting their five children.
Lois is survived by five children and fifteen grandchildren: Allen and Carolyn Sollenberger, Kurt, Lorie, and Julie; Anne and Ray Rife, Kevin and Kent; Joyce and Glen Raser, Jonathan, David, and Katrina; Lane and Judy Sollenberger, Brian, Brent, and Kayla; Lynn and Andrea Sollenberger, Mark, David, Benjamin, and Laura; and one “borrowed” daughter, Lavonne Young. In addition, Lois has sixteen great-grandchildren and a collection of nieces and nephews. She spent many happy hours with her progeny playing games and watching them perform in academic, dramatic, and athletic settings.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by the following siblings: Catherine Rice, Anna Myers, Hartman Rice, Thelma Plum, Burnell Rice, Gladys Esh, and Edna Rice.
