Lois Satterwaite-Gondos Obituary

Lois Louise Satterwaite-Gondos, age 91, of Elgin, IL, peacefully went to her Lord on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, surrounded by her loving family in St. Joseph’s Hospital in Elgin.  She was born on March 19, 1932, the daughter of Blanche Schultz and Lee Satterwaite.  She was a life-long resident of Elgin and graduated from Elgin High School in 1949.

Lois was a member of Good Shepherd Church.  She loved to bowl and enjoyed taking care of her yard and gardens.  She prided herself on her independence, and, as an example, insisted on plowing her own snow up until her passing.

Lois was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Gordon G. Gondos; her granddaughter, Courtney Nissen-Smith; and her brother, Jack Satterwaite.

Surviving are her two daughters, Nancy (Mark) Gondos-Wiseman of Fort Myers Beach, FL, and Marsha (Thomas) Gondos-Kelley of Shell Knob, MO; her grandchildren, Erik Wiseman, Ellen (Dustin) Wiseman-Anderson, and Kelly (Natalie) Nissen; her great-grandchildren, Addison Anderson, Parker Anderson, Alex Nissen, and Jorie Nissen; and her brother, John (Shelly) Schultz.  Lois was a devoted mother, loving grandmother, and proud great-grandmother, always more worried about the well-being of her family than herself.

A celebration of life will be planned in the coming months; details will be forthcoming.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be sent to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of Elgin.
