Lois grew up in Batesland, South Dakota and attended school there through 8th grade. She then moved to Gordon where she graduated high school.

During her freshman year in high school, she met her future husband, Gordon Swanson. She was very active in various organizations during this time and was elected Homecoming Queen her senior year. She then attended the University of Denver.

When Gordon returned from the Navy, they were married on April 15, 1954. To this union six children were born: Rick, LeeAnn, Joni, Lisa, Mike, and Scott. She had 24 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren, which she was so very proud of. She enjoyed her family most of all, and enjoyed going to their sporting events, school activities and on camping trips.

Besides raising her children, Lois held various jobs. Her favorite profession was working in the banking industry where she worked for many years.

She enjoyed entertaining, cooking, playing cards, and spoiling her beloved dog Foxie.
