Baruch Dayan HaEmet – Lois Kolodny z”l

Lois Kolodny (Leah Asne) passed away early Friday morning, May 12, 2023 at Life Care in Longmont.  She turned 94 in January. Lois was a very beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend and will be sorely missed. 

Lois moved to Colorado from Conneticut in 2014 and became an active member of Bonai Shalom, making some good new friends and attending every Shabbat until her health prevented this. 

Lois will be buried back on the east coast next to her husband Edwin.


Blessings of strength and comfort to her daughter Jodie, son Richard, their spouses, all the grandchildren and great grandchildren and her friends.

Her memory will always be a blessing!
