On Saturday, August 3, 2013, at 2 p.m., a Celebration of Life will be held
in honor of Martin and Lois Kennoy.
Martin and Lois were long time residents of Chesterton, Ind.
They were married in Royal Oak, Michigan on July 12, 1948, and moved to
Chesterton in 1955.
They had eight children: Larry, Debbie, Mark, Rick, Mike, Marshall, Mary
Ellen and Martha Ann.
They also had 20 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren, many of whom
still live in the Chesterton area.
Martin and Lois purchased and restored the Main Street building in downtown
Chesterton in 1979 and then purchased and restored The Hoham House in 1983.
Martin and Lois were involved in several projects in Chesterton over the
years, including the Oz festival, Christmas Walk, Medieval Festival and the
Frontier Festival, to name a few.
They opened their building to several groups for meetings and functions over
Lois Lane, off Indiana Ave., in downtown Chesterton, and the parking area
behind South Calumet, was named after Lois to honor all the work and
beautification she did in that area.
Lois was also named Business Woman of the year in 1992.
Please join this remembrance event at the American Legion at 798 Wabash
Ave., Chesterton, on August 3 at 2 p.m. to celebrate and reminisce about the
lives of Martin and Lois Kennoy.
