Lois M Nau
March 29, 1922 - March 8, 2016
Lois Mary Nau, 93, of Star, passed away peacefully on March 8, 2016 surrounded by her loving family and adoring husband of 74 years.
Lois was born March 29, 1922 in Gage, Oklahoma, to Austin and Ethel Edwards. In 1938 the family moved to Caldwell where Lois met the great love of her life, Raymond Nau. Three years later, on October 26th, they wed. They made their home and farmed for many years in the Caldwell area and raised crops, cattle and children.
Raymond often tells the story of coming home to his young bride after a hard days work and her wanting to go "up town" for dinner. He told her that he still had to milk the cows to which she flatly replied, " I already milked 'em." And she milked those cows every night after that. He milked them in the morning, but she would milk them in the evening. She had a way of getting what she wanted and he had a way of giving her the moon.
Lois and Raymond loved to travel and they criss-crossed the country in their camper, hitting all of the states except Louisiana. Lois loved going up town for dinner, movies, and dancing. Oh how they loved to dance! They could clear a dance floor as people made way to watch in awe as they whirled their way around the room. Even in her later years when she was confined to a wheel chair, Raymond could be seen pushing her chair around, humming and shuffling to and fro to the melody of "Somewhere My Love".
Lois was a proud and regal women and her loyal husband treated her with love and devotion that he knew she deserved. Their 74 year marriage has served as a beautiful example to true and enduring love.
Lois was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Russell, and grandsons Andy and Jamie Nau.
She is survived by her loving husband, Raymond; sister Anna Carol Upson of Caldwell; daughter Vickie (Larry) Hutton of Star; sons Jim (Vicki) Nau of Othello, Wa. and Howard (Wendy) Nau of Melba. She is survived by numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.
The family wishes to thank Rhonda and the staff at Country Time Assisted Living for the wonderful care they have provided for Lois these past 7 years. They have really become like family to Lois and Raymond and we appreciate their love and compassion so much.
At her request, there will be no formal service, but the family will greet friends who wish to pay their respects on Wednesday, March 30th, from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m. at Country Time Assisted Living 277 S Main St. Star, Idaho.
