She met Larry at Gustavus Adolphus college and they were married on May 18, 1962. Together they had three children. Lois was an elementary school teacher for forty plus years and enjoyed every minute of it; it was her passion. She also had many hobbies from collecting recipes, gardening, playing cards, sewing, reading, and cheering on the Minnesota Sport’s teams especially the Twins. No matter how busy, Lois always had time for her family, cooking the best meals and just enjoying each other’s company.
