Lois was born in Tenstrike, MN on July 15, 1928, to Roy and Ella Gregg. They lived in Tenstrike, Red Lake and Bemidji. Lois graduated from Bemidji High School and French’s Business College.

She loved playing cards especially 500 Rummy. Family and grandchildren spent many hours playing Rummy with her.

She is survived by her five children, Bill (Gina), Terry (Maria), Dan (Kathy), Gayle (Dan) and Nancy (Paul) and her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
