Obituary for Lois Ann McLean

Lois Ann McLean, 68, of Storrs, passed peacefully, June 11th  2006 at Windham Memorial Community Hospital. Lois was born September 18th 1937 in Bridgeport, CT. Lois received her Baccalaureate degree from Central Connecticut State College in 1959 and achieved her Master’s degree from Fairfield University in 1962. Lois taught Mathematics in Newburgh, NY, Stratford, CT, Newtown, CT., and Bolton, CT, while raising her two sons. In 1977, Lois took her dream job as Office Manager of the Connecticut Daily Campus, the student newspaper of the University of Connecticut. During her more than 20 years at the Daily Campus, Lois mentored countless students, establishing many life-long relationships. Those who knew Lois, knew her as strong-willed, a tireless conversationalist, an equally capable listener, and a woman with a genuine heartfelt laugh. Lois was an avid reader – her personal library numbering in the thousands. Lois was fond of antiques, baskets and crafts – always finding the most thoughtful gifts for family and friends. One of Lois’ greatest passions was travel; Lois spent a year and a half of her adult life in Europe, and many months traveling around the United States with her family. Her favorite sanctuary was Plum Island, Massachusetts, and the town of Newburyport. Lois was pre-deceased by her parents, George and Gladys Pitteway of Milford, CT. Lois is survived by her two sons, J.J. McLean of South Windsor, CT, Christopher McLean and his wife, Michelle, fondly known as ‘DIL’ to Lois, of Manchester, CT., and her sister Janet Phelan of Guilford, VT. She is also survived by her two best friends, CK and Mikey, her loving cats, her dear friend, Dorothy Wicklund of Woodstock, CT., and many other close friends, nieces and nephews. Per Lois’ request, there will be no formal services. A private memorial gathering will be held at a latter date at the family’s discretion. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Lois’ honor to the American Lung Association. Goodbye, Mom, we love you, rest in peace.   Bacon Funeral Home 860-423-1234    

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Lung Association.
