Lois Adeline (Portinga) View was born at home south of Prinsburg, Minnesota to Arthur and Grace (Zuidema) Portinga, on Sunday, July 6, 1930.  The family moved to Lake Lillian on March 2, 1937.  Lois attended country school District 5 and graduated from Bird Island High School in 1948. She married Dale Erickson in 1954 and they were later divorced.  Lois married Wesley View in 1964, and they lived on a farm near Big Kandiyohi Lake until Wesley’s declining health.  They then built a new home in Lake Lillian in 1991.  She worked at Petterson Electric, Lake Lillian Creamery, Lake Lillian Bank, 3M in Hutchinson, Cargill, and the Post Office for 30 years, retiring in 2000. Lois was baptized and confirmed at First Lutheran Church in 1944 in Lake Lillian. She was very active in her church and community; participating in bible studies, circle, home extension, charter member of Lois Club, Senior Citizens Clubs in Lake Lillian and Willmar, 500 Card Club, and Friendship (Widow/Widowers) Group. She enjoyed time at the City Center making greeting cards and being part of exercise group; the group was so dedicated that they went through three VHS copies of the Silver Foxes Workout tapes before finally being given a DVD copy. Lois was a devoted follower of Christ and lived her life to serve others in any way that she could. She had a great sense of humor and liked making witty comments. Her gentle and generous soul will be greatly missed.

 

Lois is survived by her one adopted daughter, Holli Egerstrom; very special grandson, Stefan Eric Egerstrom; and many other relatives and friends. Lois was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Grace; husband, Wesley View, former husband, Dale Erickson; brothers, Floyd (first wife, Phyllis and second wife, Marlys) and Delton “Bud” (Beverly) and special friend, Gerald Zylstra.
