Lois Jane Hoops was born on October 14, 1923 to William and Louise (Reber) Hoops on the family farm in West Hanson Township. She attended school in West Hanson and later worked for several neighbors. Lois was later employed at the Gamble’s Store and Blue Bird Cafe. On December 11, 1946 she was united in marriage with Walter Pasch on the farm. In 1957, the family purchased a farm nearby where they raised their family. Lois and Wally were blessed with four boys, but tragically lost their first born son Billy in Vietnam, making Lois a Gold Star Mother. Their third boy, Alroy “Porky” died at an early age from a heart attack. Through these hardships, Lois always kept her faith.
Lois was baptized and confirmed in West Hanson and later began attending St. John’s Lutheran in Groton. She was active in Ladies Aid, Good Cheer Circle and in their quilting circle. Lois also belonged to the Brown County 4-H Club, American Legion Auxiliary, and was Chairman of the James Jimmy’s Baseball Team. In her free time, she enjoyed crocheting, quilting, gardening and tending to her yard.
Celebrating her life are her two sons, Robert Pasch (Anita Rieprich) of Webster, Donald Pasch of Watertown, six grandchildren: Ron (Amy) Pasch, Tamora German, Tanya Groft, Becky (Brook) Stephens, RaeLynn (Lonnie) Geiman and Roberta Elkins, 16 great-grandchildren and 16 great-great-grandchildren.
Preceding her in death were her parents, two sons, William “Billy” Pasch, Alroy “Porky” Pasch, her husband, Walter and three siblings, Fritz Hoops, Wallace Hoops and Dorothy Martin.
