Lois E. Przywojski

d. July 18, 2014




She attended nursing school at Mercy Medical Center Hospital in Dubuque, Iowa.  Lois graduated as an R.N. in 1973 and began working at St. Francis Hospital in the Special Care Unit later to be named the I.C.U.


Lois worked 40 years in the Intensive Care Unit offering kind and loving care to all of her patients.  Her nursing awards were many.  Most recently Lois was recognized as a “Daisy\” award winning nurse.  She was loved and respected by all her colleagues and patients.


Lois was a grand niece of Mother Seraphim Krause, FSPA, who was one of the founders of Viterbo College.  She always held the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration close to her heart.  She loved her music and accompanied for many school concerts both at St. Thomas More and Cathedral Parishes.  She was in the Celtic Cross Irish Band and the Dr. Rock Band.  She enjoyed entertaining with her husband Rick at Oktoberfest.  She was church organist at Mary, Mother of the Church for many years.


She was preceded in death by her Parents Ralph and Evelyn Brumm, her Mother and Father-in-Law Richard and Janice Przywojski, and one Sister-in-Law Susan Olson.


Lois was a sweet heart. She made the world a better place with her kind and gentle ways. We will all miss her.
