Lois was born December 24, 1927 in McKinnon, Wyoming, the first of nine children born to Alden D. and Lois Venita Anderson White. As the oldest, she grew up as the farmer in the family. She plowed fields, milked cows, hauled hay and anything else that needed done on the farm. As a result, she always lamented her lack of domestic abilities.

She had a great love for music and filled her home with good music. This instilled in her children the importance of music. Lois had a beautiful singing voice.
She was an active faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved the Lord with all her heart and soul, and served in many callings through the years, including, Relief Society President three times, seven missions with Karl, and as a temple worker for nearly 20 years.
