Lois Gombash

Lois Gombash, age 87, lifelong resident of Swanton, Ohio, passed away Wednesday, October 6, 2021 at her home, with her family at her bedside. She was born October 26, 1933 in Swanton to Harry and Jessie (Bollinger) Sherman. Lois was in the first class to graduate from Anthony Wayne High School. She married Eugene Gombash on October 22, 1955, and he preceded her in death on November 22, 2017.

Lois was a member of St. Richard Catholic Parish, Swanton Elks and Swanton American Legion Post #479 Ladies Auxiliary. Lois will be remembered as a wonderful cook and baker, especially for her delicious Hungarian pastries and caramel corn balls. She loved spending time outdoors tending to her flower and vegetable gardens. In her later years, Lois took up adult coloring books. Her daily routine consisted of hanging out with the breakfast bunch at McDonald’s. Lois always made herself available for her family, especially her grandkids and great-grandkids. There was always a full bowl of candy on the kitchen table for them to enjoy.

Lois is survived by her daughter, Mary (Bud Crosby) Gombash; sons, William "Willie" (Polly) Gombash, John Gombash, Eugene "Dino" (Laurie) Gombash, Jr. and Joe (Ann) Gombash; grandchildren, Liz (Zach) Gombash-Marks, Jacob (Scarllette) Gombash, Ryan (Jessica) Gombash, Tyler (Nicole) Gombash, Amber Gombash, Harmon (Anna) Gombash, Haiden Gombash, Jennifer Gombash, Danielle (Russell Reed), Rachel Gombash and Brianna (Brad Seely) Gombash; great-grandchildren, Wesley, Dean, Gianna, Averii, Grayson and Tucker Gombash; sisters, Amelia Hartbarger, Dolores Cluckey as well as many nieces and nephews.

Besides her husband Gene, Lois was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Jesse Sherman and brother, Marvin Sherman.

Family and friends may visit Sunday, October 10th from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton. Funeral services will be held Monday, October 11th at 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home. Interment will follow at St. Richard's Cemetery.

A special heartfelt Thank You to Hospice of Northwest Ohio and the nurses and doctors at St. Anne's for the exceptional care provided to Lois, and to her special caregivers, Denise Hartbarger and Ashley Sheets. Thank you to the Ohioans nurses and the Senior Helpers aides who made it possible for Lois to pass away at home.

Such a sweet, kind, caring and fun lady. I am sure she was glad to see Gene and those who went before her. After reading all the tributes it is obvious that Lois raised a wonderful loving and caring family. God bless all of you.

This rainbow became
a double rainbow and
appeared to me the
day after Mom died.
I was visiting my father-in-law at a nursing home.
My mother-in-law, Bonnie
died 8-29-21.
I took this as a sign that
they crossed the \"Rainbow
Bridge\" together.
They are at peace
and pain free.

Thanks to my family,
Mom was able to die
at home. Everyone got
out of their comfort
zone and became
caregivers. It was hard.
But she would not go
to a facility and have
us "come look at her".
Thanks go to her aides,
Denise, Ashley, Linda,
Darian, Jody and Tanisha.
They made sure she was
safe when we weren't there.
Special thanks to her
granddaughters, Brianna,
Scarlette and Liz.
They jumped in to help
when times were tough
to be a caregiver.
My love and gratitude
goes to Willie, John , Dino
and Joe who supported
Mom's decision to come
home and cared for her.
More love to Laurie and
Ann for staying with Mom.
Mom loved all of the
attention and care that
she received at home
during her last week.
She said that it lessened
her pain. She spoke with
all of her grandchildren
who she adored.
My most heartfelt love
and gratitude goes
to Polly, who has cared
for Mom for years and
held her hand as she
passed. Also, love
and thanks to Liz, RN
who jumped in and gave
excellent end of life
nursing care to her
grandmother.
