Obituary for Lois Kindt

LOIS CAROL KINDT was born on October 23, 1931, to Emil and Lorraine (Rapp) Petersen in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She was raised in Rock County where she resided her entire life. She attended Luverne High School and graduated in 1949. After graduation, Lois began working at Lauden Drug in Luverne. On June 24, 1953, she was united in marriage to Harold Kindt at Zion Lutheran Church in Hardwick, Minnesota. The couple made their home in Hardwick where Lois worked at the Hardwick Bank until 1970. In 1986, she began work at Fey Industries in Edgerton, Minnesota. Lois retired in 1992. On June 1, 2016, she entered the Minnesota Veterans Home in Luverne. She lived here until Sunday, April 1, 2018, when she went to be with the Lord at the age of 86 years, 5 months, and 8 days.

Lois was baptized in March of 1933 in Pipestone, Minnesota and confirmed on July 7, 1945 at Zion Lutheran Church in Hardwick, where she was currently a member. Throughout her life, she was active in her church by singing in the church choir, teaching Sunday School, and playing organ for services. She had a lifelong passion for music and always enjoyed singing and playing both piano and organ. Lois was also a member of the Hardwick American Legion Auxiliary Arthur Moeller Post 478. Those who loved her will miss her wonderful cooking and the warm smile that she always seemed to wear. She had great pride in her grandchildren and held family very dear to her.
