Lois Joy Borenstein Singer, 80, passed away on July 12, 2020 in Oceanside, CA. She was preceded in death by her parents, David and Tillie Borenstein and her brother Lloyd. Lois was born on November 8, 1939, in Madison, WI. She grew up on the east side close to her father’s store, Borenstein’s Clothing and Shoes, on Schenk’s Corner. She had wonderful memories of that time, and especially her many years of dance lessons at Kehl’s. To her mother’s dismay, she would tap dance for customers on the street outside of the store while her mother would try to give back the coins people would throw at her feet. Eventually, her family moved to Nakoma, where she graduated from West High. After attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Lois sailed to Europe on the Queen Elizabeth with her mother and Aunt, where she married the love of her life, Allan Singer. A year later, after being discharged from the Army, Lois and Allan returned to Madison, and spent the next 20 years creating a wonderful life and raising their two daughters. She was a fantastic cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends. She thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Lois was an active member of the sisterhood at Temple Beth El. She also enjoyed her weekly Mah Jongg games with “The girls.” Her pride and joy was operating her bath boutique “Pamper Your Bath,” until the family moved to California in 1979. She enjoyed several positions as a Sales Rep., selling gourmet giftware while traveling all over Northern California. She was thrilled to be living just outside of San Francisco, enjoying the culture and fantastic dining experiences. Lois was also a wonderful artist-she loved color. She was known for her vibrant wardrobe, and her favorite saying was “life is too short to wear beige.” She spent years drawing, painting, and making dichroic glass jewelry, which she sold at the Oceanside Museum of Art when she and Allan moved to a retirement community in Southern California in 2005. Lois battled MS for 40 years, but never let it get her down or stop her from doing what she wanted. Her positive and “can do” attitude was admired by her many friends and family. She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Allan Singer, and her two daughters, Leesa and Barri. She will be greatly missed and admired for the love she gave her family, her sense of humor, spark for adventure and a genuine ability to tell a story and make you laugh.
Funeral services were held in San Diego, CA on July 15th at Miramar National Cemetery.
The Singer family would especially like to thank the staff at Brookdale Oceanside, and Season’s Hospice, for the wonderful support and care during this difficult time.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the MS Society or the Alzheimer’s Foundation.
