Lois Hanson Rowe
Lois was born January 24, 1964 in Arcadia, WI to Vilas and Joan Hanson. She passed away on August 4, 2021 at Methodist Hospital in Rochester, MN following a brave and graceful fight against leukemia and its consequences.
The youngest of four children, Lois was a soft-spoken woman whose empathy and concern for her siblings knew no bounds. Lois had a very special place in her heart for her nieces and nephews. She loved being an aunt and great aunt. Her cousins were more like best friends and her closest girlfriends like sisters.
Kathryn Margaret, her only child was without a doubt her greatest joy. She was so proud of the beautiful young woman Katy is today.
A longtime resident of Rochester she worked in various Histology related departments at Mayo Clinic. Lois was most active in her Histology Professional organization and very much enjoyed the cities she traveled to for meetings and the special friends she made over the years.
