Lois C. Cole Law Johnson Obituary
Lois C. Cole Law Johnson, 85, of Blackfoot, Idaho went to her eternal home on Thursday, Aug. 24, 2017; surrounded by her loving family. 
Lois was born Aug. 16,1932 in the backseat of a car on the way to the hospital in Pocatello, Idaho. The third of seven children of Robert Cutler Cole and Carmen Catherine Naef Cole of Arimo, Idaho. Lois grew up in Marsh Valley, Idaho and attended Marsh Valley high School where she graduated as class valedictorian.  
She enjoyed her young life on the family ranch with her brothers and sisters, Arlene, La Dean, Wayne, Donna, Ronald and Alice. The family worked hard on the ranch and instilled a strong work ethic that Lois always followed. 
Lois and Creed Law where married on Feb. 9, 1951 in Pocatello. They had seven children. Christine (John) Jackson of Springville Utah, Dennis (Karey) Law of Henderson Nev., Kenny Law of Blackfoot, Carol (Doug) Sorensen of Blackfoot, Kellie (Mark Thissen) Law of Cortez, Colo., Shane (Jennifer Saylor) Law of Blackfoot and Michael Law of Pocatello.
They were later divorced.
Lois and Dean Johnson joined families Oct. 16, 1971 in Elko, Nev. They merged Lois' seven children and Dean's three children. Michelle (Joseph) Moyer of Elwood, UT, Victor Johnson (deceased) and Angie Seymour, of Boise.
Lois owned and operated many businesses throughout the years.
It all began in the 1960's with the opening of the first drive through restaurant in Pocatello, Idaho, the Snack Out. Several years later after a move to Blackfoot, a drive through restaurant, Humpty's Dump was opened, followed by the opening of the The Lantern Pizza Shop.  
Some years later Lois and Dean built a mobile home park in Moreland and opened a Lantern Pizza shop in Idaho Falls. After retiring from the restaurant ventures Lois began a quilting business that she operated for many years. 
Besides quilting as a business Lois lovingly made many quilts for her family and won ribbons at the fair.
Lois enjoyed the many businesses she operated, however she enjoyed her customers the most. 
She enjoyed serving families and friends but took a special interest in the younger generation, tolerating all their shenanigans. Of course, no one will ever get a pizza as good as the ones that she made or cuddle up in a more comfy quilt.
Lois was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Lois is survived by her husband, Dean; her seven children; two stepchildren; 27 grandchildren and 48 great-grandchildren.
She preceded in death by her parents; sister, Arlene; brother, Wayne; brother in law, Grant Burke; sister-in-law, Mary Jo Cole; stepson, Victor Johnson; and grandchildren Ava Law and Trooper Hill.
The family would like to extend a very special thank you to The Gables of Blackfoot Assisted Living and Memory Care, Alliance Home Heath and Hospice and the Thirteenth Ward LDS Church.
A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 2 at the 13th Ward LDS church 1650 Highland Drive, Blackfoot, Idaho 83221. Family will meet with friends from 6-8 p.m. at Hawker Funeral Home and for one hour prior to the service at the church.
