Lois M. Johnson, 87 of Ashland, NE passed away Tuesday, August 16, 2022 at Oxbow Living Center in Ashland, NE.  She was born September 15, 1934 in Wann, NE to Clifford and Lucille (Sanders) Keiser.  Lois was a lifelong resident of Ashland. She was a member of the First Christian Church where she taught Sunday School and was an officer at the church.  She was united in marriage to Paul Ira Johnson on June 5, 1951 in Wann, NE.  From this union two sons were born, Rick and Rod.

Lois had many jobs throughout her life but most notably she was an emergency seamstress to many brides-to-be and cheerleaders and a mentor to anyone in the community.   She was a devoted caregiver for her ill mother, grandmother and her dear husband, Paul.  She was famous for baking cookies for anyone who needed to have a brighter day.  She took pride in her yard growing many flowers, especially roses.  Her pride and joy were her dogs, Muffin and Pepper.

Lois is survived by her sons, Rick (Susan) Johnson of Ceresco, Rod (Alisa) Johnson of Albuquerque, New Mexico; grandchildren, Heather (Ryan) Haynie, Ryan (Allison) Stubbendeck, Rhett (Krystal) Stubbendeck; great-grandchildren, Jace, Brody, Griffinn, Estella, Charles, and Monroe; brothers, Stanley (Evelyn) Keiser and Vern (Marilyn) Keiser.
