Lois E. (Peluso) DeCosta, age 88, of Brockton, died peacefully on November 6, 2021 at Life Care Center of West Bridgewater. Lois was the loving wife of the late Robert F. DeCosta. Born and raised in Brockton, she was the daughter of the late Louis and Rose (Lachimia) Peluso.
A lifelong resident of Brockton, Lois was a small business owner for over 50 years. In 1972, she and her sister Bobbie opened The Looking Glass Beauty Salon where she worked until the late 1980’s. She then joined her late daughter, Bonnie, at California Styles until her recent retirement in October 2020 at the age of 87. Lois was lovingly known as the “Legend,” who enjoyed watching classic films and recreating old Hollywood hairstyles.
Lois was always the life of the party, having fun and laughing. Time spent with her grandchildren was the most precious time for her.

She was the sister of Roberta “Bobbie” Avitabile of Raynham, Brenda Peluso of West Bridgewater, the late Phyllis Patricelli, Rosemary Morse, Anthony Peluso and Gary Joy.
