Lois was born December 17, 1930 at the home of her parents Roy and Ruby (Bowen) Jacobs in Fayette County, Ohio, and attended South Solon schools until the family moved to Greene County. In 1948 she graduated from Jefferson High School in Bowersville. Following graduation, she worked for the Xenia Gazette until she married Lewis Thane Chitty on March 4, 1950. Together they farmed the family farm and raised two children, Roger and Diane. They were married 50 years before Thane's death in 2000. In addition to her parents and husband, Thane, Lois is preceded in death by her son-in-law John Weed and daughter-in-law Susan Chitty. Lois loved to entertain and spend time with family and friends. Her home and heart were always open to all. In seventh grade Diane met and made friends with Cindy (Brown) Trick. Before long Cindy became part of the family and Lois referred to her as her "adopted" daughter. To Lois, Cindy, husband David, and their sons Ben and Evan, were family. When Roger married Susan (Shepelak) the Chitty and Shepelak families merged into one. Lois loved being a part of this large extended family and playing grandma to so many little ones.

After retirement, Lois spent much of her time planning, planting and tending to dozens of flowers in and around the yard on the Chitty farm.
