Prayer Emblem

Lois Caruso passed away on December 9, 2014 at St. Peter's Hospice Inn after a courageous battle with cancer.

Lois had a wonderful sense of humor and zest for life. Born in Paterson, NJ to Joseph and Connie Zandstra Cantanzaro, she moved to Schenectady in 1974 to participate more fully in volunteer bible education work. She was a member of the Schenectady South Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses. Lois thrived on helping others and on supporting her family in any way she could. Even through the most difficult times with her health, her faith and sense of humor sustained her.

She had been employed by KeyCorp for over 30 years and upon her retirement began once again a career in a full time bible education ministry, which she thoroughly enjoyed.

Lois is predeceased by her parents, her step-mother, Florine Catanzaro and beloved cousin, David S. Catanzaro.

Survived by her husband of 39 years, Ray Caruso, her sons, Joel (Heidi) Caruso and Jeremy Caruso, she is also survived by her uncle and aunt Angelo and Mary Catanzaro as well as cousins Jonathan and Kathy Catanzaro. She will be deeply missed as Grammi to her two grandchildren, Isabella and Eric.

A service will be held at Kingdom Hall of the Jehovah's Witnesses, 1720 Albany Street, Schenectady, NY 12304 on Saturday December 20,2014 at 3 pm.

The family would like to thank the staff and nurses at St. Peter's Hospice Inn and the nurses in radiology for their personal interest and care.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, 25 Columbia Heights, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
