Lois Williams

Lois Jane Williams, 66, died Friday, Jan. 5, 2018, at St. Lucas Care Center in Faribault. She was born March 21, 1951, to parents Alice Tyhuis and Richard Hendrickson. Lois was raised in Hartland and attended school in New Richland.

Lois loved working at Canton Cafe for 15 years and was also a waitress at Coffee Haus. She loved playing bingo at the Eagles Club, playing board games — like Yahtzee and Trouble, and watching “Shadetree Mechanic.” She was outgoing and a mom to everybody. She used to play tag on the CB radio with her kids and was well-known by her handle “Ice.” She always had a fridge stocked with food and plenty of sweets available for her grandchildren. She will be deeply missed.
