Lois LaVerne Hildebrandt

April 19, 1933 ~ June 20, 2020 (age 87)


Went to be with her Lord on June 20, 2020. Lois was born on April 19, 1933, to Mona

(Tjaden) Kern in Fergus Falls. She later moved to St. Paul with her mom

and stepdad, Wally. Lois graduated from Mechanic Arts High School in

1951. Lois met the love of her life, Ralph “Bud” Hildebrandt, at

Riverview Baptist Church in West St. Paul, and married him there on

June 30, 1956. Lois was very active in her church and sang in the church choir for over 50 years.

Lois was a loving wife, mother and grandmother and enjoyed spending

time with family and friends. She loved Christmas, decorating, having

lunch with friends, singing and listening to music, especially on KTIS

radio. Even in the later stages of Alzheimer’s, she remembered hymns

and sang along. Lois always had a smile on her face and was beautiful,

inside and out. Lois is survived by her son, Mark (Donna) of Meridian, ID; daughter,

Cheryl (Bill) Stephenson and grandson, Willie, of Apple Valley; and

daughter, Caryl (Jay) Jermier and Jay’s children, Madelyn, Zach and

Blake, of Lanesboro; and brother, Eugene Hanneman of Brainerd; many

cousins, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. She is preceded in death by her

husband of 63 years, Bud, and her parents, Mona and Wally Kern.

Special thanks to the staff at Orchard Path and Optage Hospice for

lovingly and skillfully caring for Lois. Family burial at Evergreen Cemetery with a

celebration of Lois’ life to be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be
