Lofi was an amazing storyteller. She had a way of grabbing your attention as she told a story. I would hang onto every word until the end. Lofi would dress as Juliette Gordon Low for various events. Girls still think that she is Juliette. She was always a willing worker and willing to travel to troops to speak with girls. Lofi reminded us that "Girl Scouts is not an organization. It is a movement." She allowed me to bring Orange County Girl Scouts to the Cedars to sing holiday carols for several years. I am so blessed that we were able to have one last "Caroling with Lofi" in December 2018. She was an amazing woman that made a huge impact. I think that it was Martha Webb that described Lofi as, "A woman that took a promise and engraved it upon her heart." She is definitely my Green Angel.

I will forever be thankful for my time with Lofi. She was an inspiration to all Girl Scouts and a true leader for the Movement. She will be dearly missed. Much love.

Having just read Lofi's obit, I think it is the best one I have ever read. After reading, I truly felt like I really new her. And I do remember both she and Steve since I am a former BW employee. What a life she lived and I know each family member must be so very proud of having enjoyed life with her.

Lofi will be truly missed by all who knew her. I am one of her sister Girl Scouts and enjoyed the times we had together. My Troops loved going to any activity she attended - they would always ask her to bring out her little tin box. The box held various items, the girls would pick one and Lofi would tell them how it related to Juliette Gordon Low. She was a great source of Girl Scout knowledge and was always happy to share. She loved ceremonies as much as I did and donated ceremonies that I used for my ceremonies trainings. She taught me some new skills to incorporate so my scouts that had handicaps could earn a Try-It, Badge, Interest Project Patch or a Wider Ops. Those of us that she shared her skills and knowledge with will always cherish those memories. Thanks for the memories, Treefrog

Lofi made a lasting impression on me. She had many talents which she shared when we visited. Lofi made you feel special just by knowing her. May she be a blessing to all who knew her.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

I have a candle that Lofi lit for me from the candle that Lady BP lit for her. Lofi, you will always be a light in my life.

What a beautiful tribute to a truly remarkable woman -- and a spirited character! Lofi was surely one-of-a-kind, and I will miss her enormously. My heartfelt embrace goes, especially, to Heidi, a devoted and ever-loving (and loved) daughter.

Yes, Lofi, I remember you well from all our camping experience at Camp Mary Atkinson, to the other sites where we would go camping with our troops. We were both trainers and leaders of girls in our our county. I can see you in my mind sing songs around the campfires and engaging all to sing. You always wore your uniform whenever we gathered. You always shared literature with us. I remember you mailing cards to me explaining a holiday. I will always remember you and our other Girl Scout friends that have gone on. May you all sit around another campfire until we meet again. Girl Scout Life Member forever.

Lofi was a truly remarkable person. She is one a the greatest people I have ever met and I am better for knowing her. I hope that we can all pass along her wisdom and kindness in everything we do.

Lofi, you inspired me with your well-lived life. Thank you for the phone calls, the notes, the stories, the SWAPs and your friendship. I will always smile when I remember you.

A piece of Girl Scout history has been lost with the passing of Lofi. What a wonderful woman. She trained my mother and my sister when they were GS leaders. I went to many events where she taught and educated the next generation. A true GREEN angel..

Condolences to the family of Lofi - She was a wealth of information - she will be missed by the Girl Scout community as well as each person who's life she touched/came in contact with. Sleep well my friend in the masters arms

Love and light from the girls of Troop 1953. Thank you for your shining example.
Emily Hill left a message on January 14, 2019:
One of my favorite things Lofi shared with me during our short five years of friendship: She wanted Girl Scouts to look in the mirror each evening and think of two things: 1) one thing that they did for someone else and 2) one thing that someone else did for them. I think this perfectly sums up how Lofi lived her life: creating an infinity loop of good deeds, making the world a better place, thinking of others, and knowing that she could make a difference to one person -- and thus, she was making a difference in the world. She will be missed, but her good deeds will live forever in us.
Lea Chandler left a message on January 14, 2019:
Girl Scouting & myself mourns a great lady in Lofi. Lofi was a living history book and taught so many of her love of Girl Scouting . Lofi, we will miss your zest of life but you will remain strong in our hearts. I will cherish our 25++ yrs of friendship.
