Aloysia (Lois) Krein

Aloysia (Lois) Krein concluded her earthly walk on January 23, 2020, just shy of her 95th birthday.

Lois was born in Wishek, N.D., to Joseph and Margaret Schaffer.

365体育投注During World War II, Lois and her friend moved to Portland, Ore., to follow her boyfriend. They became welders in the local shipyard to assist in the war effort. She eventually married that boyfriend, Elmer Krein. Together for 53 years, they enjoyed many adventures together; fishing traveling and enjoying time with their family. They lived in Portland, San Jose, Gering and eventually settled in Davis for the last 30 years. Elmer suffered a major stroke in 1984, Lois always the devoted caregiver, cared for him until his passing in 1999. She showed everyone the true meaning of “in sickness and in health.” Her strength and fortitude will be her lasting Legacy.

365体育投注Most will remember her for the unmatched cooking and baking skills she possessed. Not only was her food loved and enjoyed by her family but friends of the family always left yearning for more! The annual delivery of her homemade Christmas treats were always eagerly anticipated by her neighbors and friends.

She enjoyed going to garage sales, reading, canning, the yearly tradition of viewing Christmas decorations around town, catching up with friends and neighbors and visiting family in North Dakota and Portland.

A loving attribute of hers was greeting family by cupping our face when she kissed us. Sometimes we would place our hands over hers and embrace the bond we shared with her. It was always a special and unique moment.

365体育投注She was preceded in death by: Elmer Krein (Husband), Ann Marie (Daughter). She is survived by her daughters Karen Wilson and Kathy Cummings (Al); granddaughters Traci, Christi (George) and Debbie; and her great-grandchildren Hayley and George IV.

At Lois’ request, there will be no services.

She was our angel and one of a kind and we will forever hold her close to our hearts. Rest well.
