Lois Larson had many loves in her life. A few included camping and fishing, photography, bowling and in her younger years… a high school love of softball. Listening to music was a favorite pastime which nurtured her love of dancing. She enjoyed following the Kansas City Chiefs. Watching her roller skating extended family brought her much joy. She adored watching her daughters play soccer from the sidelines and as they grew she coached their teams. She crocheted and cross stitched. She cherished the farm life she shared with her husband, Keith. They had many fine years together. She loved their horses and cattle and farm pets.
Her greatest passion included her family and friends. She unconditionally loved her daughters and their individuality. Her grandkids and great granddaughters were the center of her universe and brought such joy to her life.
Lois was the perfect fit for her job. She loved helping people and was passionate about helping as a CNA/CMT. She impacted many lives in her years of service.
Lois never turned anyone away and her friends were just like family. Her list of children was very long. She was known as Mom or Sis to everyone. She loved whole heartedly and that love was returned by all who knew her. She adored life and lived it to the fullest. Her laughter and smile would brighten any room. Lois was the rock and foundation of her family and friends and will be forever missed.
