Rochester: A memorial celebration of life for Lois H. Treacy, 85, who passed away on February 10, 2016, was held on Sunday, February 14th, 2016, at 1 pm at St. Johns Meadows, Chestnut Court, in the Parks Room.
Left to cherish her memory is her loving husband, Robert, of 59 years, her children, Martha T. Laub (Russell) of Stanton, VA. Jennifer T. Halstead (Edward) of Cuchara, CO. and William R. Treacy (Ann) of Pittsford, NY; four grandchildren, Jennifer, Katie, Cameron, and Allison, and one great-grandchild, Marilyn.
Lois had recently moved back to Rochester, with her husband, after 28 years of living at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia. Lois served in an industrious career as a Registered Dietitian in several Rochester and Virginia health organizations, including St. Mary's School of Nursing, the American Red Cross, Rochester General Hospital, the Genesee Valley Group Health Association, and many local nursing homes as a consultant and facilities planner.
An "Outstanding Young Woman of America" in 1966, Lois has been active in both professional and civic organizations, including GDA, NYSDA, American Diabetes Assoc, Scouts, 4-H, and Community Chest. She was a volunteer Cafeteria Manager for St. Thomas the Apostle School for 19 years.
She was instrumental in developing the first diabetic care training and medication regimens in the United States, and was invited to the International Nutrition Symposium in China in 1986 as a United States representative on nutrition.
Lois fed many people over her illustrious career, with great food and a great knowledge of nutrition. She will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
