Lois was a homemaker who cared for her children. Once they were in school she went to work part time at McDonalds and then was a hostess at Hardee's. She loved meeting new people and making them feel comfortable. Lois and Bud wintered in Texas for the last 25 years and spent their summers at Lobster Lake in Alexandria. Last year they returned to North Mankato to live at Oak Terrace. It was difficult to leave all of their friends at their lake home but they knew it was time to return to Mankato where they had raised their family. Lois loved bingo, garage sales , fishing, bowling, playing cards, dancing and liked going to casinos.
A special thanks to family, friends, Oak Terrace and Mayo Clinic Mankato Hospice for taking such good care of Lois.
Rest In Peace Mom we will miss you.
