Lois Mae Sivertson Ozmun was born December 10, 1947, in Ada, Minnesota, to Sigurd and Anne (Klevgaard) Sivertson.  She lived with her family in rural Ulen, Minnesota, until the 11th grade when she moved to Crookston and graduated from Northwestern School of Agriculture.  She later attended the New York Hairdressing Academy in Fargo.  Lois married Eugene Darell Ozmun on December 12, 1968, at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Northfield.  After marriage they made their home in the Northfield area and amongst other jobs, Lois worked for a time at the Castle Gardens Supper Club and the Coast to Coast in Northfield.  In 1986, they moved to Farmington, and over the years Lois sold life insurance and securities, had a wall paper hanging business and help families with estate sales.  In 2001, Gene and Lois moved to their beautiful lake home on Burlingame Lake near Danbury, Wisconsin, where they enjoyed entertaining family and friends.

Lois was loved for her open and generous spirit and was the kind of person that would do anything for anyone.  She loved music, reading, spending time with her grandkids, and praising God at all times.  She is former member of Minnesota Valley Free Lutheran Church in Lakeville where she established a Wednesday night youth program called WINGS.  Lois was greatly loved and will be dearly missed.

    Gene & Family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. Lois was an amazing person who had a beautiful soul. She gave me the gift of her friendship a number of years ago. It never mattered how long it was between visits, I was always greeted with a warm hug when I saw her. I was always in awe of her ability to give and do so unselfishly. She always had a project or a cause or a mission and they always seemed to benefit others. She was, and continues to be an inspiration.

    With love and sympathy,
    Lynne Weierke

    Gene and Family, I will always remember Lois because of her smile and laugh. She is such an amazing woman and had the heart of an angel. Every time I would see her, she always had a hug and the biggest smile. She loved her family and friends. She will forever be in my heart and the hearts of everyone she knew!
    With Love and sympathy, Heather Larson
