In 1961, she returned to Illinois and taught second grade for 28 years in the Dixon public schools. She retired in 1989. Since retirement, she had done volunteer work for Child Evangelism Fellowship in various ministries and places.

Lois was a member of Christian and Missionary Alliance Church in Dixon for 36 years, and attended Bethel Evangelical Congregational Church in Dixon in recent years.
