"Teacher, Genealogist & Violinist"

MANSFIELD: Lois Marjory Robinson McCullough, daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother and friend, passed away peacefully August 20, 2015.

Lois was born in Mansfield, Ohio on January 4, 1922, the third child of Jessie Irene Teeter and John Chester Robinson. After attending Mansfield Public Schools, she graduated from The Ohio State University, where she became an avid life-long Buckeye fan. (Go Bucks!) She taught school for 30 years, most of them in Mansfield.

She married Harry Hoyt McCullough on August 24, 1947. Together they enjoyed traveling, friends and family.

Her lifelong interest in family history kept her close to her roots. She was a proud member of First Families of Ohio, First Families of Richland County, Ohio Daughters of 1812, Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Ohio Genealogical Society. She was honored to be the co-Grand Marshall of the Mansfield Bicentennial (2008).

She was an active member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Bellville and belonged to AAUW (Woman of the Year - 2001), Richland County Retired Teachers Association, Ohio Education Association (life member), The Ohio State Alumni Association and a member of Delta Omicron Music Society.

Lois co-authored three books about Richland County's one-room schoolhouses and edited several editions of The Heritage.

She is survived by her three daughters, Karen Higgins of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Ellen (John) Brabson of Albuquerque, New Mexico and Robin (John) McCullough-Bade of Baton Rouge, Louisana. She was proud of her five grandchildren, Sara Higgins of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Capt. Andrew Higgins of Washington D.C., Jessica (Mike Garavaglia) Brabson of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Rex (Megan) Brabson of La Jolla, California and Michael Bade of Baton Rouge, Louisana. Lois is also survived by sisters-in-law, Lillian Robinson and Ruth McCullough, and many loving nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Harry; siblings Mildred Leiter and John Robert and brothers-in-law Marshall Leiter, Russell McCullough and Robert (Grace) McCullough.

Lois leaves an endearing legacy that touched many as she shared her true pioneer spirit.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, August 24, 2015 at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 48 Church Street, Bellville, Ohio. Pastor Doug Pretorius will be officiating. Friends may call on Sunday, August 23 from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. at the Diamond Street Home of Wappner Funeral Directors, 98 S. Diamond Street, Mansfield.

The family suggests memorials be made to St. Paul Lutheran Church or the Richland County Foundation (in honor of her daughters, "The McCullough Girls.")
