- Lois Graff Rubin of Farmington Hills died at the age of 77 on Saturday, November 21st. She is survived by her loving daughters, Sheryl (Dr. Jonathan) Necheles and Lisa (Grant) Kravitz; grandchildren, Jordyn and Sari Kravitz and Leo and Rachel Necheles; sisters June Graff Dreznick and Maxine Graff (Neil) Goodman; a host of nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews; cousins; and a world of cherished friends.
She was the daughter of Emanuel (Manny) and Matilda Soller (Bobbie) Graff. Lois grew up in Detroit. She loved her summers at camp in Toronto and New York, as well as at Camp Tamarack in Michigan. She never forgot traveling to Washington D.C. with her New York camp friends to hear Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. deliver his “I Have a Dream” speech. Lois graduated from Mumford High School in 1960 and attended Wayne State University where she received both her Bachelors degree in Education and a Masters Degree in Guidance and Counseling. Initially an elementary school teacher, she took time off to raise her daughters, returning to the workforce as a school counselor and then as a jobs counselor in the private sector. She loved working with and helping others find their place in the world. Upon retirement, there was nothing Lois loved more than spending time with family and friends, traveling and creating memories, and using her amazing talents such as jewelry making.
