Lois (Sanderson) Johnson - burial

Ole and Mari Finnestad's great great granddaughter, Lois Elaine (Sanderson) Johnson was born to Nora Elma (Peterson) and Lawrence Alvin Sanderson on November 9, 1920, in DeKalb county, Illinois.

Lois married Wilfred C "Bud" Johnson on June 16, 1979 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Lois passed away on November 3, 1999 just a few days before her 79th birthday and was buried next to her parents in Fairview Cemetery, DeKalb, Illinois.    Here is her grave marker.

I'm not sure why her marker lists her maiden rather than her married name though here is an obituary for her husband, "Bud" Johnson from the DeKalb Daily Chronicle who was also buried at the Fairview Cemetery.

Lois' grandparents were Ellen Marie (Vallem) and Seward Sanderson.  Her great grandparents were Rachel (Finnestad) and Lewis P Vallem.
