Boes, Lois Mae (Reinhart) Age 90, left us peacefully on June 20. Preceded in death by her parents Louise & Al Reinhart, brothers & wives Virgil Reinhart (Marie), Melvin Reinhart (Kathleen), and Rev. Ralph Reinhart; infant son Ronald, and daughters Karen Oman and Cynthia Boes. Survived by her husband of 69 years, Vernon Boes, and daughter Sandra O'Brien (Kevin); grandchildren Jennifer Oman (Nick Merchant and great- grandchild Hudson), Lindsay Ring; Casey O'Brien (Tricia), Brady O'Brien (Jade), Shane O'Brien; Jim and Mahideh Oman and Annie Isler; and her only sister Jean Knobbe (Urban). Also survived by our "Lunch Cousins," brother-in-law and sisters-in-law, and many nieces and nephews. Lois was born in Mount Carmel (Carroll), Iowa and raised on a farm. She met the love of her life, Vern, her "Breda boyfriend," at the "Fancy Works Stand" at the Mount Carmel Fair when she was 18, and the rest is history. Lois and Vern raised their 3 girls, moving through Iowa and finally up to Minnesota, due to Vern's job at Cargill. Throughout those years, Lois was a lifelong learner, attending classes, writing, self-publishing stories and books. She worked as a receptionist at a tennis club, and became a proficient doubles player, making friends along the way. She was an accomplished musician since her youth, playing the piano and singing, and always encouraging her daughters to do the same. She had an adventurous spirit and traveled alone on a train trip around the entire United States before Vern retired. She will be most remembered for her witty humor and ready laugh. She knew how to make life fun and believed humor was a very important part of it. She also had a tender heart and had a special relationship with children and the elderly in her life. Her heart also went out to the poor, the vulnerable, the disenfranchised, and she was generous to their causes. Lois was the heart of the family and will be dearly missed. Our only consolation is that we believe she is now celebrating with so many dear family members who preceded her in death. We are so grateful for the nursing staff from The Glenn Hopkins (especially the devoted Resident Assistants), Interim Hospice, and Twin Cities Physicians for all the love and caring she received. Mass of Christian Burial on Friday, July 8 at 2:00 pm, visitation beginning at 1:00 pm at St. Gabriel the Archangel - St. Joseph Campus, 1310 Mainstreet, Hopkins, MN 55343. In lieu of flowers, you are welcome to make a donation in honor of Lois to The Glenn Hopkins, 1011 Feltl Court, Hopkins, MN 55343. Washburn-McReavy.com Strobeck Johnson 952-938-9020
