met and married Kenneth Olsen. They lived in Billings where Lois retired from First American

moving home to be close to their family.
Lois and Ken loved traveling the country in their RV, spending most of their winters in Lake
Havasu City, NV. Their travels took them all over the country, but they always came home to
their kids. After Ken passed away in 2009, Lois kept herself busy with her dog Peanut or by
meeting with her banker ladies having lunch or dinner. She loved her monthly dinners and
weekly lunches with the ladies. Lois also loved to go to the newest movies with Kari or go put a
few dollars in the machines with Kelly. Lois also loved spending time with all of her
grandchildren and watching her Great Grandson grow and learn something new every day.
