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. Luke’s Hospital Auxiliary and the W.F.W.C. Women’s 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.
