Lois Arlene Hansen was born on October 10, 1940, to Eldo and Beulah Hansen, in Pipestone, MN. She married the love of her life, Chuck Schroder, on July 6, 1963, in Pipestone, MN. Shortly after that, they moved to Denver, CO, for Chuck’s job. Later, they moved back to Renner.  In 1970, the family moved to Brandon, where they raised their two children, Tina and Jeff.

She worked part-time at multiple businesses while her children were growing up and attending school.

Lois was adored by her husband, Chuck, who affectionately referred to her as “Ma.” They loved to travel and went on many trips and vacations. Camping was a passion that they both loved to do.

Lois and Chuck also loved going out for dinner together and oftentimes would celebrate holidays and anniversaries at their favorite restaurants. She loved her children and grandchildren with all of her heart and nothing made her happier than when she could attend all of their activities until she was unable to do so. Some of the other things she enjoyed to do was going to the casino and to Las Vegas with her girls. One of Lois’s passions was supporting Chuck in his many years of service in Kiwanis.

She was an active member of Brandon Lutheran Church and later, Heritage Lutheran Church.

Lois will be deeply missed by her daughter, Tina Spielmann, Brandon; her son, Jeff (Larissa) Schroder, Brandon; two granddaughters, Jayde and Gaby, both of Brandon; two brothers, Michael (Dixie) Hansen, Luverne, and Ed (Judy) Hansen, Pipestone; and several nieces and nephews.

Lois is preceded in death by her loving husband, Chuck; her parents, Eldo and Beulah Hansen; and one brother, Richard Hansen.
