They moved from the Parsley family farm in Coleman, South Dakota, in 1968 with a couple of brief stops while looking for farm property to raise their family. They settled in Shandon, California, where they grew alfalfa and cattle and were one of the first to plant wine grapes in the area.  

Lois was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Olga of Minnesota, her brother David of South Dakota, and her husband Paul of Shandon, California. She is survived by her sister Ruth, her brother Paul, five children, seven grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild, and a host of nieces and nephews.
