Lois was united in marriage to Gene Waldowski on August 21, 1965 at the Church of the Visitation in Danvers, MN. She was a physical education teacher for thirty-five years in the Roseville Area School District which included Capitol View Junior High and Roseville Middle School. Over thirty-five years she made many friends and stayed friends with those she met in high school, college, and teaching. Lois and Gene built a home in Ramsey in 1969. The gardens were filled with hostas and flowers. In 2016, her gardens were featured as part of the “Beautiful Garden” Series appearing in the Sunday edition of the Star Tribune. She was a charter member of the Ramsey Garden Club, taking a leadership role, and shared her talent for gardening with many people. She was a great story teller with a wonderful sense of humor. In her spare time, she enjoyed canning her vegetables, golfing and enjoyed her winters in Sebring, FL. She was an avid reader, loved dancing, entertaining, and was a member of the Philolectian Society and Alpha Delta Kappa Sorority (an international society honorary organization for women teachers).
Lois is survived by her husband, Gene, and her son, Jason Waldowski; her brothers and sisters, Robert Beyer, Beverly Bussler, Dianne Beyer, Ronald Beyer, and Russell Beyer; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents and three brothers: Elwood, Roger and Richard Beyer.
Lois was greatly loved and will be missed. Rest in Peace
