Lois Claire (Archie) Bowen

Lois Claire (Archie) Bowen, 87, passed away Friday, Aug. 9 after a brief illness. She had spent the last 50 years of her life in Lake Mills, where she found many lifelong friends and became a part of the community she so loved. Some of the local organizations dear to her heart were the L.D. Fargo Public Library, Aztalan State Park and St. Vincent de Paul.

She was preceded in death by her husband Dave and son Jack, along with her parents Wayne and Gert Archie, and sister Jeanne Robertson. She is survived by two daughters, Nancy (Glenn) Goudreau and Peg (Michael) Cullen, who share her love of reading, travel and NYT crosswords. She is also survived by four grandchildren — Adrian (Nok) Goudreau, Nate (Levi) Goudreau, Nora Cullen and Willa Cullen.

In accordance with Lois’ request, no services will be held. The family wishes to thank each and every staff member at Brook Gardens, whose compassionate care so enriched Lois’ life over the last couple of years.
