Obituary for Lois M. Nelson
Lois Marie Nelson, age 59, passed away suddenly January 7th, 2015 at St. Croix Regional Medical Center in St. Croix Falls, WI. Lois was born on February 10th, 1955 in Amery, Wisconsin, beloved daughter of Clifford and Rosemary (Moschkau) Tasker. She grew up in Turtle Lake on the family farm. Lois was baptized and confirmed at Zion Lutheran Church in Turtle Lake. In 1973 Lois graduated from Turtle Lake High School and attended UW-Stout in Menomonie and later went on to obtain a bachelors degree in human services from UW-Superior.

Lois met the love of her life, Glen Nelson and they were married on September 12th, 1987 at Zion Lutheran Church in Turtle Lake. They were happily married 27 years and their pride and joy was their daughter, Greta who was born in 1988. Lois loved working on the family farm alongside Glen and they enjoyed many honors over the years including being honored by Governor Tommy Thompson and receiving a commendation from the Wisconsin state legislature. Lois and Glen received the Distinguished Service Award from the University of Minnesota Dairy Club and the Wisconsin Ayrshire Breeders Association. Lois served as a 4-H leader in Polk County for many years mentoring young people. In addition Lois spent time as a meal site manager for Polk County and volunteered with Interfaith Caregivers.

Lois treasured the time spent with family and friends and attending her daughters many activities and taking pride in Gretas achievements. Lois spent numerous hours as a dedicated member of West Denmark Lutheran Church and Milltown Lutheran Church. Lois lived a life of faith and was a servant to Gods work to all she encountered. Her moral compass rooted in faith set an example to all of us. Lois was a loving wife, doting mother, faithful sister and a loyal friend. Lois was blessed with the ability to connect to others and words fall short when trying to describe her generous and lively spirit. Lois family members are forever grateful by the outpouring of support from their family, friends, and community.
