Lucinda White Lohr 1923 - 2018
Lucinda W. Lohr, 95, died on Nov. 5 in Kennett Square.
Born in 1923 in Atlantic City, N.J., the daughter of John J. and Virginia (Baker) White, she thrived for the past 23 years as a member of the Crosslands retirement community. Previously, she lived in Annapolis, Md., Bluefields, Nicaragua, Veracruz, Mexico, and Mt. Tabor, N.J. From her causes to the trips with her grandchildren, Cindy loved her family and loved exotic places, making friends everywhere she went. She exuded energy and spirit and everyone knew it.
She was married to Freeman W. Lohr for 30 years until his death. She was the mother of Jack (Janice) Lohr, Bob (Celia Foley) Lohr, and Ginny (Rob Briggs) Lohr; grandmother of 11; and great-grandmother of four. She is also survived by two sisters, Betsy Rigell and Mary Meagher.
Cindy accelerated her 1943 graduation from Swarthmore during World War II to marry her loving husband. In 2015, she was proud to be the first to sign a letter to the Swarthmore College Board of Trustees opposing stock ownership in non-renewable energy stocks. She was a frequent lover of the Metropolitan Opera and was especially devoted to the tenor Placido Domingo. From Quaker roots, she found a spiritual home in Alcoholics Anonymous , Unity Fellowship, and Unitarian Universalism.
A memorial service at Crosslands will be scheduled in the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations to Citizens Climate Education (citizensclimateeducation.org) in her memory would please Cindy, and would be matched by the organization. The family is sharing memories at cindylohr.blogspot.com.
