Lois was born November 28, 1938 the daughter of Dr. Robert Weiher and Idella (Williams) Weiher in Janesville, WI. She graduated high school in Bruce, WI. On December 20, 1958 Lois was united in marriage to Roland H. Thompson. The couple owned and operated the Town & Country Floor Mart, Wisconsin Group Homes and R&L Binding.
Lois was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who took great pride in caring for her family. Lois enjoyed decorating the outside with seasonal flowers, camping, four wheeling, boating and maintaining a home where everyone was welcome. Her days in the kitchen were endless making sure that her family sat down together everyday for dinner and talk about the day. Above all, her family meant everything to her, from being a devoted wife, raising her three boys, watching her six grandkids turn in to adults, to seeing her first great grandchild that was named after her mother. Those that knew her best will miss her traditional values, her warm spirit, and her love of family. We will all miss her.
Mrs. Thompson is lovingly survived by her husband: Roland of Marshfield; children: Ron (Linda) Thompson of Sun Prairie, Bob (Renee) Thompson of Marshfield, and Bill (Paula) Thompson of Marshfield. She is further survived by her grandchildren: Kayla (Charles) Weiss, Kendra Thompson, Amanda Thompson, Andrew Thompson, Danielle Thompson, and Benjamin Thompson; great grandchild: Idella Weiss; as well as siblings: Roberta (Paul) Salisbury, Dr. Richard (Marilyn) Weiher, and Caroline (Wayne) Rakow. She will truly be missed.
She is preceded in death by her parents: Dr. Robert and Idella Weiher and siblings Freeman Weiher and Rita Powers.
