Born November 29, 1935
Died April 12, 2018
Lois was born and raised in Cassville, Wisconsin, on a working farm. Was loved and cherished by her Father and Mother George and Madeline Garner. She was third in line to sister LaVon and brother Stanley all who preceded her in death and met her at the gate for a game of cards.
Lois left her family home in Wisconsin at the tender age of 18 to attend beauty school Dubuque, Iowa – from there set out to explore the world. Her goal was to visit every capitol city in the United States. She landed first in Lansing, Michigan, where she met her extended family of “sisters” at Sisters Styling Salon. Shortly thereafter met and married the love of her life Ron Case. They proceeded to grow their loving family of five April (Jeff), Holly (Mick), Tim, Jan and Chuck (Linda).
She will be greatly missed and remembered by all who loved her especially her five children, 16 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and her loving husband Ron.
Lois was an active member of St. James Catholic Church in Mason, Michigan, where she participated and used her craft in the Rosary Makers Club, crafting thousands of rosaries, spreading the message of love and faith to her family and beyond.
Lois was a lover of all things creative, she was a master gardener, painter, seamstress, and crafter – her talents were endless, an example for us all – give it a go, put your heart into it.
We were blessed with many years of great family memories.
