Lois I. (Anderson) Groth

August 13, 1926 — April 7, 2022

Lois Isabelle Groth of Linthicum, Maryland (formerly of Ainsworth, Nebraska) passed away on Thursday, April 7, 2022, at 6:43 AM. She was born on a farm in rural Nebraska about 15 miles northeast of Ainsworth on August 13, 1926, to her parents Hester Anna (Owens) Anderson and George William Anderson. Later she and her parents and sisters lived 20 miles north of Ainsworth on a farm known as “The Old Galligan Place” named after her great grandfather. She was of the fourth generation to live in that home. Her grade school education, grades 1 through 8 were in a 1-room schoolhouse in Brown County, Nebraska. Her 7th and 8th grades of education were in a schoolhouse near an area where her mother once attended school. Lois graduated from Ainsworth High School in May of 1943. She began her working life, as did many other Ainsworth graduates, at the Brown County Courthouse, in the offices of County Clerk and Treasurer. On January 1, 1944, she was employed at the Ainsworth Air Base of the then Army Air Corps where her 34 years of Federal Employment began. She retired from the Provider Reimbursement and Review Board in Baltimore in February 1987. In 1949, she and her husband, Edward Blaney, whom she had met in Ainsworth and later married in California, moved to Ferndale, Maryland. She lived in Maryland until her death. Lois had many hobbies and interests and was always busy. She loved to paint pictures and accomplished her goal of having her own paintings hung throughout her home. She loved to garden, wrote many poems, researched her ancestors, their history as pioneers and homesteaders in Nebraska. As a Bible student, her library overflowed with Bibles and Bible literature which she shared with others. Lois was concerned about the problems of others and tried to help in any way she could. She would often say, “I get too involved”.
