Lois grew up on a farm west of Butler. She attended country school until 5th grade; that school eventually closed so she transferred to St. Otto’s Parochial School in Webster where she attended from grades 5-8. Lois finished her schooling at the Webster Public High School.

Lois then moved to Aberdeen, where she met Andrew Gisi. They were united in marriage at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Bristol, SD, on June 19, 1965.
