Lois Mae Yeager, age 89, of Brainerd, passed away on Monday October 5, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Brainerd, MN. A private family burial will be held at a later date.

Lois was born on the family farm in Richland County, Montana to Herbert and Hazel (Rock) Vanderhoof on October 27, 1930. At the age of five, Lois and her family moved from the farm into the town of Fairview, Montana where Lois lived until she married Ralph Yeager on June 18, 1949. After a year in Polson, MT where Tom was born, followed by a year in Middleton, WI where Leon was born they moved to the Ossipee area of rural Merrifield, MN where Suzanne and Shirley were born and they lived there for the remainder of their lives. Lois helped Ralph build and run a family resort on Lower Mission Lake and helped Ralph raise turkeys, deliver mail and run a school bus company. Lois was a member of Ossipee Community Church. She was a long-time member of the Center/Mission Garden Club, The Grange, and served as a Center Township election judge for many years. She enjoyed crocheting, playing cards and bingo. Lois loved her family deeply, and she was known to the grandchildren as the grandma who always had gum!

Left to cherish her memory are her children, Thomas (Loree) of Nisswa, Leon (Carol Ann) of Merrifield,
Suzanne (Karlo) Goerges of Pequot Lakes, Shirley Collins of Brainerd; sister, Helen Snedigar; sister-in-
law Ruth Yeager; 8 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews.
