Lois was born on December 26, 1936 in Askov, Minnesota, the daughter of Walter C. & Marie A. (Belling) Jensen.

The family resided in Minnesota until 1952 when they moved to the Bow/Edison area and Lois attended Burlington-Edison High School.

On June 25, 1954 she was united in marriage to James E. McDaniel in Everett, Washington and they made their home in several communities in Snohomish and Skagit Counties until finally settling in Burlington in 1998.

Lois worked as an educational aid for schools in Snohomish County for several years.

She loved the outdoors, being born in Minnesota and raised on a farm it was only natural. She especially loved eagles and elk and really all of God's creatures.

She was a longtime and very active member of the Edison Lutheran Church, and a member of the Dairy Wives Association and the 2 cylinder Tractor Club.

Lois is survived by her husband of nearly 55 years, James E. McDaniel, Sr. at the family home in Burlington; two sons, James E. McDaniel, Jr., and his daughter Samantha Anne and Walter L. McDaniel; three brothers and their wives, Victor & Judy Jensen of Bow, Tom & Judy Jensen of Burlington and James Jensen in California; her sister, Irene Anderson of Tulalip; sister-in-law and dear friend, Louise Dorcy of Burlington; brother-in-law, Alvin McDaniel and his wife Henrietta and sister-in-law, Nancy Lanphere; a step-sister, Nancie Scott and husband John of Day Creek; step-brothers, James Goerg and his wife Lori and Richard Goerg and his wife Sharon; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2011 at 11:00 AM at the Edison Lutheran Church in Bow with Pastor Larry Olsen officiating.

Memorials are suggested to the Edison Lutheran Church, the Regional Cancer Care Center at Skagit Valley Hospital or to the Diabetes Association.
