Lois was born on February 11, 1931 in New Prague to Erwin H. and Gladys (Castor) Beinhorn. Growing up in New Prague, she graduated from New Prague High School in 1948. She married Milton F.

She enjoyed raising her daughters on the family hobby farm along with her husband, cooking, gardening, sewing, and in later years reading novels, doing crosswords and spending time with grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved and enjoyed being with family and everyone she met was greeted with a smile and considered a friend. While she was most recently living at Traditions Assisted Living in Montgomery all the residents were considered close friends. She truly cared about everyone and staff was greeted with "Hi Sweetie" and when departing, an "I love you". Her faith was strong and showed in the love and caring she had for everyone.
