QUEEN CREEK, ARIZONA — On Monday, September 28, 2020, Lois Evelyn Biser, loving grandmother, passed away at the age of 88.
Lois was born on June 12, 1932 in Wendell, Idaho to Rudolph and Bertha (Preas) Fiegenbaum. Having married William C. Biser Jr. in 1951, she had two wonderful children, Jacqueline and Rodney.
Lois was never without a smile on her face. Having grown up in the Methodist Church, she remained active in the church everywhere that she moved, including Twin Falls (Idaho) First United Methodist Church, St Mark's Church of Orinda and Moraga (California), Klein United Methodist Church of Spring, Texas, and Sierra Vista (Arizona) United Methodist Church.
Lois had a passion for singing in choirs and performing. She had acted for many shows for the Dilettantes and also was a part of the Oakland Symphony Chorus as well as the Contra Costa Chorale.
Lois was a strong, determined and fiercely independent woman. Being a very intelligent woman, she was the type who would challenge college courses in lieu of taking them. Lois had worked as a bookkeeper, accountant, office manager at St. Luke’s Hospital in San Francisco, and radio station manager at KTFI in Twin Falls, Idaho. At KTFI, she wrote promos, commercials, operated the switchboard and then wrote news stories. This was her favorite job, and even had one news story that went national.
Lois was preceded in death by her daughter, Jacqueline, and her son, Rodney. She is survived by her grandchildren, Deana Wheeler, Ryan Wahl, Shannon Hoye, Jeffrey Biser, Jacqueline Biser, nephew Tim Fiegenbaum, and 11 great-grandchildren.
The family expresses appreciation to the home caregivers and hospice staff, as well as the physicians that participated in her care.
