After graduating from Lester Prairie High School, she met and then married Curtis Asche on June 21, 1968. They settled in Hutchinson, MN, where Lois worked 25 years at Hutchinson Technology and welcomed her two sons. Lois enjoyed watching her sons, Steven and Ryan, play sports. She spent many hours in the hockey rink, at the football field and baseball diamond cheering them on. She enjoyed family activities, snowmobiling and fishing.
Curt and Lois moved to Pequot Lakes in 2001. Lois worked in the bakery at Walmart in Baxter for 9 years before retiring. She loved to visit with family and friends, having coffee with neighbors, watching wildlife from her front deck, and listening to the wind blow through the trees.
