Lois Lange, 73 of Rushford, Minn. died peacefully on February 15, 2015 at Good Shepherd Lutheran Home.

She was born in Minneapolis, Minn. on June 9, 1941. She grew up in Choice and Rushford, Minn. and graduated from Rushford High School in 1959. In 1961, she married Ronald Elzea and had a daughter, Tracy. They later divorced. On December 17, 1962 she was married Lawrence (Toad) Lange. They had three daughters: Melanie, Heidi, and Holly, and raised the four girls on the family farm just north of Rushford where Lois enjoyed having many pets.

Lois started working in her parents’ root beer stand in Rushford. After graduation, she worked for Rush Products, Bunke Sales, and tested milk for local farms in the area. She also owned a lunch wagon that she would take to auctions and events. Later, she took a job at TRW in Rushford. While working there, she went to school and became a certified Massage Therapist. She opened her own massage business in Rushford and liked helping people feel better. After her retirement from TRW, she enjoyed giving Amish tours in Preston and being a driver for the Amish.

Lois was an active member of Rushford Lutheran Church, Mother-of-Twins, Homemakers, and Sons of Norway and loved to see Lanesboro Theater Productions. She loved to travel and she and Larry took many trips to Ariz., Nev. and they also visited Alaska and Canada. Her travels also took her to Mexico, Scotland, and England. Every 4th of July and New Year’s Eve, they could both be found celebrating with their favorite crew.

Lois is preceded in death by her husband, Larry; and her parents, Norma and Ray Aakre. She is survived by her daughters: Tracy Crain, Melanie (Bruce) Williams, Heidi (Shawn) Lee, all from Rushford, and Holly Lange of Rochester; granddaughters: Taylor Williams, Amber Stone and April Stone; and a sister, Sharon (John) Gruhlke.

The family of Lois would like to thank Good Shepherd Lutheran Home staff for all of their care and also the friends and family that visited during her stay.
