Lois attended Nebraska School until 8th grade and then went on to attend Nebo Schools.

Wade at Trio Manufacturing; but her favorite role was as a homemaker for her family. She also spent time working with her husband running R&R Chimney Sweeps and helped deliver travel trailers around the United States. Lois enjoyed traveling and going to the boat where she always took advantage of the complimentary room and meals. Lois was a good mother and grandmother who encouraged her children to get involved in activities and later she enjoyed attending her grandchildren’s many sporting activities.
