Gottfried, Lois (nee Kalbfleisch):

69, of Waterloo passed on in our home on Sunday, August 23, 2020 after a 25 year courageous battle with MS. She brought love and joy to anyone that knew her and even in her darkest times offered help to others in need. Lois enjoyed nursing at both Woodstock General Hospital and Grand River Hospital. We raised two beautiful, creative and independent thinking boys, Aaron and Daniel...more to her credit than mine.

Lois was raised by her parents, Stewart and Mary Kalbfleisch (deceased) on the 9th Line of West Zorra Township with her brothers, Bill (deceased), Jim (deceased) and sister Diane. Lois sends her love to all the family, especially daughter-in-law, Tara, and granddaughter, Summer, all the nieces and nephews and all her dear friends.

I don't know how I was so fortunate to find this country girl but I did. We were married 40 years. We travailed the toughest of times and touched the depths of hell but we always made it through together and flourished.

We would like to thank the countless people that have helped us through this part of her journey. the doctors, health practitioners, nurses, LHIN, and especially the PSW's. Your love and help allowed us to stay together.

Lois, you have always been my guiding light and I will love you eternally, Bill.

Expressions of sympathy may be made to the MS Society or a charity of your choice through the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener, 519-749-8467.

A celebration of Lois' life will be held at a later date.

I'm Bonnie Di Bernardo nee Schaefer and Lois and I were second cousins and good friends when we were kids.
Every summer we had a holiday at our Aunt Annie's in Embro. We each had a summer romance with the neighbor boys
Johnny and Bobby who would impress us by wheeling past on their bikes daily. The four of us would explore the fairgrounds
down the street and enjoy flirting together as young kids do.
At night when Aunt Annie was sleeping Lois and I would get up and make random, prank phone calls, and take turns
saying "Wouldn't a Dow go gooood now?" from a beer ad at the time. Then the giggling would begin.
My best wishes to her family and friends. Lois was and is a beautiful spirit.

Bill, Aaron & Dan,
I was so sad to hear of Lois's passing. I always enjoyed our visits, although they were few over the last few years. She was such a strong woman and my Dad (Tommy) would have been so sad. He always loved her. Our thoughts are with you.
Love Lana and Aunt Jackie

My deepest sympathy to Bill and family.
I worked with Lois at Grand River Hospital and have many fond memories of those years.
Her humor and compassion got us through some difficult shifts.
She could always keep us laughing, no matter the situation. One of the best.
