Lois Yvonne Mains, 92, of White Oak, went home to be with our Lord on Sunday, February 21, 2021. She was born January 31, 1929 in Greenock and was the daughter of the late Frank L. and Bernice (Huemme) Railingshafer. She lost her beloved husband, William (Bill) Mains on March 10, 2015. She had worked by his side for many years as his secretary for his successful landscaping company. Lois was a member of Greenock United Methodist Church, where she sang in the choir and if you were married in the 50’s and 60’s she was most likely the vocalist that sang at your wedding. She was an avid golfer and was on the Butler’s Ladies and The Wednesday Wonders golf leagues at Butler's Golf Course in Elizabeth Township. One of her greatest dreams became a realization when she got a hole in one at Butler’s on August 17, 2010 at the young age of “81.” She was a member of The Red Hat Society and the Elizabeth Township Senior Citizens. She was also a member of the AARP - Clairton Chapter #1612 and enjoyed many pleasurable trips, the most recent to Rome/Greece in 2019.
She is survived by her two sons, Jay William (Sandy) Mains of East Pittsburgh, and Paul Edward (Irene) Mains of Level Green. Her greatest joys were those who called her “Grammy” - Joshua (Katie) Mains, Sharon Mains, and Tyler (Demi) Mains, and “Great-Grammy” - Raylee, Sophia, Lilliana, Gabriel and Ezekiel. Also survived by sister-in-law, Jean Lukowski, brother-in-law, Edward "Ted" (Roberta) Mains, as well as nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her grandson, Adam Mains, brother, Richard Railingshafer and sisters, Gladys Spahr, Sharma Talavinia and Jane Scott. There is no visitation. A Memorial/Celebration of Life service will be held Saturday, March 6 at 11:00 am at The Greenock United Methodist Church, 1213 Greenock Buna Vista Road, McKeesport, 15135 with the Rev.
