    Lois Hammer

    December 15,1932 – March 29, 2024

    Lois Elaine Hammer was born December 15, 1932 to Joseph and Anna (Cuda) Schlegel in Milford. She graduated from Columbus High School in 1950. She was married to Lee Adams of Osceola, NE in 1951. They had two sons Greg (Julie) Adams of York, and Scott Adams of Hygiene, CO. She was later married to Alvin Hammer of Singer Island, FL.

    Lois worked to live and lived to work. She held various secretarial and retail sales positions. She wanted to be busy, even folding towels at the Hearthstone just prior to her passing. Her four granddaughters were her pride; Sarah (John) Adams-Kalejta of Wichita, Breann (Andy) Sims of Gretna, Michelle (Roger) Olson of Firth, and Ashley (Sam) Myhre of Lincoln. Her smile and friendly greeting were infectious. Her wish was to sing for you and have you join her for happy hour.

    She is survived by her sons, eleven great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and her brother Bill Schlegel of Gallatin, TN.

    She was preceded in death by her parents, husbands, and older sister Joann Taylor of Indiantown, FL.

    Lois has been cremated. There will be no viewing, visitation or services. Memorials may be directed to York Public Schools Foundation.
