Lois loved to sew, quilt and craft of any kind. She knitted hundreds of hats for the children at St. Joseph’s Indian School in Chamberlain, South Dakota, and all who knew her are lucky to have a pillow, quilt knitted hat or Christmas ornament made by her loving hands, Lois was also an avid reader but additionally enjoyed spending time relaxing while watching Westerns on TV.
