STEVENSVILLE - Lois Anita Poswiatowski, 63, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, peacefully at her home, surrounded by loved ones.

She was a beloved, caring daughter, partner, sister and friend born to Alex and Elsie (Brawner) Poswiatowski in Essex, Md., on Feb. 8, 1950. As a young girl, she had an easy smile and enthusiasm for all of life. She loved to go boating on the Chesapeake Bay with her family.

Lois was a gifted athlete. While in high school, she led the girls' field hockey, basketball and softball teams to numerous championships and was an active member of the Girls Athletic Association. In college, she continued her success with the hockey, basketball and volleyball teams. Lois has been nominated to the Kenwood High School Athletics Hall of Fame.

She was a career photographer and served seven presidents from Nixon to Clinton over 20 years at the White House Communications Photographic Laboratory.

After retiring from photographic work, Lois returned to college and earned a bachelor's degree in environmental studies and worked as a park ranger with the National Park Service for a while.

Lois was continually inspired and drew comfort from her family and the beautiful natural surroundings of Montana and our national parks. She spent many happy hours after retirement researching the family's genealogy and continuing her love of photography.

She is survived by her partner of 31 years, Karen Lindsey; her siblings, Paul Poswiatowski and Janis Knepp; several nieces and nephews; and many other family members.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, at Whitesitt Funeral Home in Stevensville with the Rev. Mary Wellemeyer officiating The family suggests memorials to the local Humane Society.

May she enjoy God's eternal blessings. Lois will remain in our hearts and not forgotten until we meet again.

Lois was gifted in so many areas and her enthusiasm for life was contagious.
I knew her as someone who was honest, loving and always devoted to Karen.
She also had a major influence on my life and influenced me through her constant kindness.I am very proud to have known her.

My deepest sympathy to all those left without her and to Karen for her loss.

Lois was an internet friend of mine. We exchanged information about the BRAWNERs, who were ancestors of both of us. She was helpful to me and enthusiastic about researching her family. We will miss her.
