Lois Harriet Drucker was born June 26, 1937, in New York City to Fred and Pearl (Seidman) Drucker. She grew up in Woodmere and graduated from Woodmere High School in 1955. She attended the University of Rhode Island before transferring to the Teacher’s College at Columbia University because her mother didn’t think she was meeting enough eligible men. Lois met Clive D. Lerner in a bar over the summer while she was a student. They married on June 26, 1959, in her parent’s Woodmere backyard. She worked as a teacher in the New York City public schools until her first daughter, Jane, was born. The family moved to Commack, where another child, Steven, was born, followed by Julie. She lived in Commack until her husband, Clive, an attorney in Central Islip, retired. The couple moved to Las Vegas, where they spent many happy years in retirement, playing the slots, eating at buffets and relaxing in their backyard swimming pool. Her husband, Clive, died on Nov. 23, 2016. Lois is survived by her three children: Jane Lerner of New City, N.Y., Steven Lerner of Las Vegas, and Julie Loiudice of Center Moriches, N.Y.; five grandchildren: Olivia and Elizabeth Langer of New City; James, Justin and Jason Loiudice of Center Moriches and a brother, Howard Drucker, of Connecticut.
