Obituary


Lois Thelma Worthington, 86, passed away Saturday, November 30, 2019 at Bronson Battle Creek Hospital. She was born March 1, 1933 in Battle Creek, the daughter of Donald and Hazel (Miller) Rench. She grew up in a large family with several sisters and two brothers. July 11, 1952, she was joined in marriage with Donald M. Worthington, Sr., who preceded her in death in 2010. Lois worked as a packing operator at Kellogg’s until her retirement after 26 years of service, making her a member of the Kellogg 25 Year Club. Lois was very close to all of her family and valued spending time with them. She looked forward to gathering with family on a weekly basis to share stories as well as nightly phone conversations with very special nieces. She has touched many lives with how much she cared for people. She enjoyed flower gardening but her first choice was spending time with her granddaughters.  Surviving is her son, Donald (Dawn) Worthington, and granddaughters, Alexis Worthington and Morgan (Nick) Adamson. She is also survived by two sisters, Donna Rench Clarkston, and Janet Rench Ellison.  Also surviving are several nieces and nephews. Lois was preceded in death by her daughter, Stephanie Worthington Nelson, her husband, Donald Worthington, Sr. and eight sisters and two brothers.
