Lois Winograd Seegal


On January 15, Lois Winograd Seegal of Baltimore at 80. She is survived by her husband, Robert Seegal; sister Carol Cederbaum (Westport, Conn.); brother-in-law Richard Seegal, and sister-in-law Donna Prescott (Folly Beach, S.C.); nieces and nephews Amy Kutell, David Seegal, Deborah Jones and Mark Cederbaum.

Lois worked as a children’s librarian in Freeport on Long Island, N.Y., and as a volunteer librarian in Pikesville, Md. A voracious reader, she often read more than two books a week. Beside their apartment door, Lois kept a stack of books that she had read to offer to guests as they departed. Lois and Robert (Brown University, Class of 1963) were blessed with a long and loving marriage. Together, the two met Lois’s many health challenges. Lois showed tremendous courage and perseverance in leading a normal life, despite her handicaps.

The couple lived in Barrington, R.I., for 20 years before moving to Baltimore for Robert’s work in SONAR technology at Westinghouse. After her husband retired, they continued to enjoy going to art museums, classical music concerts and craft shows.
