Lois E. Greenwalt, 98, passed away suddenly Feb. 25,2017, in Duluth.

She was born to Martha Fenske and Adolph Denis, her immigrant refugee parents, on May 25, 1918 in Brainerd, Minn.

In 1941, Lois married Everett Greenwalt of Burtrum, Minn. She graduated from the Minnesota School of Business in 1942, and worked throughout her life as an accountant. In 1952, she and her husband purchased a National Auto Parts franchise in Minneapolis. In 1956, the call of Lake Superior's north shore was great enough to relocate to Silver Bay, where she accepted a job, retiring from the John W. Galbreath Corp in 1977.

While living in Silver Bay and rural Two Harbors, she was an active member of both Faith and Hope Lutheran Churches, serving as organist for many years. Upon moving to Duluth, she was a member of Mt. Olive Lutheran Church. Lois loved to travel, was a prolific knitter, a competitive card player and an award-winning baker.

Preceding her in death were her husband of 69 years; and her sisters, Renee Denis and Virginia Davy.

She is survived by son, Denis Greenwalt and his wife, Pamela Barbour of Duluth; three step-grandchildren; one step-great-grandson; 13 nieces and nephews; many grand nieces and nephews; and many more loved ones.

A special thanks to the caring staff of first responders, St. Luke's ER, ICU, and Hospice and Drs. Jay Kunths and Lee Giorgi.

A celebration of her long life will be held in the spring with internment at Evergreen Cemetery, Brainerd, Minn.
