February 18, 1928 - February 20, 2021
Lois Anna Dorfer Regan, beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grand- mother, and great-grandmother, died on Saturday, February 20, 2021. Born on February 18, 1928, in New Orleans to Edward G. Dorfer and Claire Kampmann Dorfer, Lois married Cornelius J. Regan, Jr. on November 26, 1947. During the 40s, 50s and early 60s, Lois was a fashion model and developed an unerring style and fashion sense. She ingeniously managed the family budget, ensuring always that her family was fed sumptuously, dressed beautifully and housed stylishly. Lois was incomparable: both intelligent and wise, kind, loving, blessed with innate grace and impeccable taste, and possessed of a keen sense of humor. Elegant and always beautifully turned out, Lois loved her family, enjoyed her Saturday shopping expeditions with her sister, Betty, and relished a really good sale. She was a devoted Christian whose life exemplified her faith and whose charity was steadfast. Lois was preceded in death by her father, mother and sister, all of whom she missed terribly. Her father’s death when she was 8 marked Lois for life, and she carried that shadow always. She is survived by her son, Cornelius E. Regan (Debbie), her daughter, Patricia R. Fox (Richard), her grandchildren, Lindsey R. Rivenbark (Will), Cornelius E. Regan, Jr., Sean M. Regan, Patrick J. Regan, and three great-granddaughters, Georgia, June and Hazel Rivenbark. During the last three years of her life, she was cared for by amazing, devoted caregivers: Marie Marks, Mary Jackson, Amanda Jennings, Kathy Cyprian and Jennifer Robinson. Their care enabled Lois to remain at home and be as comfortable as possible. Lois could easily have served as a real life model for Melanie Wilkes, from the novel, Gone With the Wind, and her epitaph would be the same: She was a very great lady. Her loss is unfathomable. There will be a private, graveside service at Greenwood Cemetery, Friday, February 26, 2021, at 1:00, interment to follow. E.J. Fielding Funeral Home 2260 West 21st Avenue Covington, LA 70433 (985) 892-9222 is in charge of arrangements.
