Lois Vogel, 98, formerly of Cando, N.D., died Sunday, Aug. 4, 2013, at Ecumen Care Center in Two Harbors, Minn.
Lois was born Dec. 30, 1914, in Sisseton, S.D., where she grew up the 11th child of Paul and Sara Just.
In 1933, Lois married Howard Vogel and moved to Beardsley, Minn., where together they raised their three children: Dolores, Lorraine and Howard Jr.
In 1952, Lois and Howard moved to Cando, N.D., where they owned and operated a Coast to Coast hardware store until their retirement in 1981.
Howard passed away in 1995, after nearly 62 years of marriage.
Lois moved to Two Harbors in 2005, to be closer to her family. She loved baking, sewing, riding horseback, playing cards, and “selling” at the
hardware store, but Lois’s family was always her top priority.
Lois was preceded in death by her husband Howard, son Howard Jr.; sons-in-law Jim Keeler and Larry Nason, and granddaughters-in-law Beth Keeler and Lisa Nason.
She is survived by daughters Dolores (Bob) Weiss of Arlington Heights, Ill., and Lorraine Keeler of Two Harbors, daughter-in-law Arlyce Vogel of Milwaukee, Wis., grandchildren Jean (Joe) Nitch, Jill (Warren) Halvarson, Bruce Nason, Charles (Laura) Nason, Gary (Debbie) Keeler, Jeff(Elsa)Keeler, Dave (Chris-tiana) Keeler, Scot Vogel, Dean Vogel, and 23 greatgrandchildren.
VISITATION: 10 a.m. until the 11 a.m. service on Saturday, Aug. 24 at the United Church of Two Harbors, 531 Third Ave., Two Harbors, Minn.
The family would like to thank the staff at Ecumen Assisted Living and Care Center for their compassionate care.
