In addition to her three sons, of Ventura, Lois is also survived by her daughter, Marlys (Bach) who lives in New York City with her husband, Michael Bromberg; as well as, several grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren who will remember her as “Grandma with the twinkle in her sea-blue eyes.” Notably those grandchildren are, Cherise Bromberg (Olsen), Carrie Bromberg, Melissa (Bromberg) Fass, the children of Marlys (Bach) Bromberg and Mandy (Bach) Thay, Niki (Bach) Flitt and Charly (Bach) Hancock, the children of Ron Bach.
