Lois was born on October 14, 1936, and grew up on the family farm near Buffalo Pound Lake in the beautiful Qu’Appelle Valley. She attended Coyote Run School in the district. She moved to Moose Jaw to finish her education at Moose Jaw Technical High School and Briercrest Bible College.

On July 13, 1975, she married Glen McMillin from the Chaplin area. They spent 41 wonderful years together residing in Moose Jaw.
Lois loved the Lord, and both Lois and Glen were active members of St. Marks Presbyterian Church for many years. Lois was also blessed with a beautiful singing voice and sang in the church choir. After retirement, she dedicated her Tuesday mornings to singing to residents at Providence Place, and even after moving into Providence Place, she was able to continue the Tuesday morning singalongs with the residents. She also volunteered at the Union Hospital for many years after retirement. In following her Swedish roots, Lois was also a member of the Scandinavian Club.
Upon her husband Glen’s passing, Lois moved to the Bentley Retirement Residence and had three enjoyable years there. She then went to Providence Place to live.
Lois was sweet and kind, and very loving and supporting to her family and friends often sending cards with encouraging notes and scriptures. Anyone who knew Lois was familiar with all the poems she wrote for different special occasions.
