Lois Jean Frederiksen RACINE Lois Jean (nee: Nelson) Frederiksen, age 90, passed away peacefully at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare All Saints Medical Center on Friday evening, July 25, 2014 surrounded with the love and presents of her family. A lifelong resident of Racine, Lois was born on August 5, 1923 to the late Peter and Mathilda (nee: Andersen) Nelson. In her adolescent and early adulthood years Lois was a hostess and switchboard operator at the Nelson Hotel which was owned and operated by her father. She graduated from Washington Park High School in 1942 and went on to earn a Music Degree from Wisconsin College of Music. With great passion and appreciation for music - Lois taught voice, directed choirs and shared her gift as a soloist in many local churches. Lois was a proud member of First Presbyterian Church. Outside of music, Lois enjoyed gardening; bird watching; traveling with family & friends; shopping; playing cards; and keeping an impeccable home. In recent years, Lois was active in the P.E.O. Sisterhood Chapter AR. She also volunteered with St. Lukes Hospital Auxiliary and the W.F.W.C. Womens Club of Racine of which she was Past-President. Above all she treasured spending quality time with her family - of whom she shared a home with since 2000. Surviving are her cherished family: son & daughter-in-law, Jim & Tracy Frederiksen; grandchildren (who affectionately called Lois Nana), Adam and Nikki Frederiksen; devoted friends, Leah Fisher and Peggy Rammelt; and many other friends. In addition to her parents and her sister, Jeanette, Lois was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 31 years, Allen J. Frederiksen in 1991. A Memorial Service will be celebrated on Saturday, August 2, 2014 at 12:00 noon in the chapel of Draeger-Langendorf Funeral Home. Visitation will be in the funeral home on Saturday from 10 am 12 noon. A reception and open house will follow at Lois home - all friends are encouraged to attend. In accordance to Lois wishes, cremation has taken place and private interment will be held in Mound Cemetery.

A heartfelt note of thanks to the entire staff of Wheaton Franciscan All Saints Hospital (especially the doctors & nurses of ICU) for the compassionate care and support given in our time of need.
