Lois Horn Obituary

Lois Marie (Bagley) Horn, 97, passed away August 24, 2023, at the Pruitt Health Center in Durham, NC.  She was born October 23, 1925, in Sayre PA to the late Willard (Bill) Bagley and Jesse (Camp) Schultz. 

Lois was a lifelong member of the Church of the Redeemer in Sayre. A Sayre High School graduate, she was the first female recipient of the athletic letter “S”.  During World War II, she contributed to the war effort running a lathe at the Athens Ingersoll Rand and volunteering at the USO canteen in Sayre.  Following the war, she married John Horn and settled into raising a family.  She was an accomplished knitter and enjoyed many crafts.  Lois took joy in her home, decorating, cooking, and entertaining. The biggest joy in her life was her family, her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  She was never judgmental; her love was unconditional. She also was a lover of many and all pets. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
