Lois grew up in New Albin and moved to Dorchester after her marriage. She worked at Tweeten Memorial Hospital in Spring Grove, MN. Lois later moved to Spring Grove and worked at Northern Engraving until she retired. Throughout her life, Lois most enjoyed spending time with family, but she also enjoyed playing cards and bingo, baking, gardening and growing roses.
