Lois Orsborne Obituary

Lois Jean Orsborne, age 80, of Goshen, IN went to be with her Lord and Saviour on Friday, January 5, 2024 at Goshen Hospital in Goshen, IN.  Ms. Orsborne was born on October 18, 1943 in War, WV to the late Lewis and Unia Bolen.  Lois was a hard working woman and was never afraid to roll up her sleeves and get a task completed.  She worked for numerous years for Hurricane at both the Ashley and Elkhart plants.  Her stunning looks also led her to become  a model for the Hurricane Boats catalog.  She also was a phenomenal cook and worked at the former Blaisings Tavern in Rome City, IN for many years.  Lois would be best described as a people person.  She absolutely loved socializing and meeting new people.  Lois was very family oriented, loved being near her loved ones, and truly cherished all the quality time and memories she had with her family.
