Lois R. Riggle, 69, of South Buffalo Twp., passed away Sunday, January 21, 2024, after a hard-fought battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her loving family at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital. Lois was born in Natrona Heights on April 16, 1954. She was the daughter of the late Elizabeth (Slair) and Frank M. Girdwood. She met the love of her life, Marc, on April Fool's Day when she was 16, and he has made her laugh every day since. She was a 1972 graduate of Deer Lakes High School. After graduation, she enrolled at the Allegheny Valley School of Nursing. She was employed as a Paramedic for 15 years with EMS companies in the Valley. Lois enjoyed going to all her kids' sporting events, making beautiful creations with her beading, and caring for her many animals over the years. She loved spending time with her family, especially vacationing with them in Ocean City, New Jerse y. Her grandchildren were everything to her; she would often be found on the sidelines or in the audience for their many activities. Lois is survived by her husband of 50 years, R. Marc Riggle and her three sons: Jason and Tracy Riggle, of Ephrata, PA; Joshua and Sarah Riggle, of Johnstown, PA; and Jeremy and Carly Riggle, of Sarver. Also surviving are her grandbabies: Alyson, Owen, Riley, Alexa, Aiden, Evan, Kolbi, Abigail, Oliver & Ellie. Lois is also survived by her three siblings: Janet and Dr. John Morphy, Beth Ann and Jack Dunlap, and Rev. Donald W. Girdwood.

In addition to her parents, Lois is preceded in death by her daughter, Kelly; her infant brother, David; her brother, Rev. Frank E Girdwood; and her sister-in law, Lynn.
