Lois A. Wert, 91, of Chambersburg, PA passed away March 7, 2022 at home, surrounded by her family. She was predeceased by her husband Bill in May of 2021, and died of a broken heart. She was born January 13, 1931 in East Waterford, PA to Bruce and Mary (McMullen) Shearer. Lois graduated from Fannett Township High School in 1948 and married the love of her life William (Bill) Wert in November 1953.

Lois and Bill owned Dairyland Farms Restaurant and Dairy Store in Mansfield, PA and was a teller at Commonwealth Bank and Trust in Tioga County, PA. After retirement, Lois and Bill traveled to all 50 states and visited many National Parks. 

Lois and Bill flipped houses long before it became popular. The family joke was that mom had painted and wallpapered almost every house in PA.
