Lois Jean Nyberg, 83, of Alexandria, formerly of Madison, was born August 13, 1929 to Eli and Rose (Kay) Schuler at Madison. She was baptized at Evangelical Lutheran Church in Garfield Township on September 29, 1929 and confirmed at Ebenezer Evangelical Church of Madison on April 13, 1941.
On August 13, 1954 she received her teaching certificate and began teaching elementary grades in the Lac qui Parle County area while she was also working on her own education. She later graduated from University of Minnesota Morris with a degree in education. She continued teaching for 36 years at various one-room schoolhouses, Nassau Elementary, St. Michael’s and lastly at Madison Elementary. She thoroughly enjoyed the teacher get-togethers.
The other love of her life came with marriage to Herman Nyberg on April 8, 1950 at Evangelical United Brethren Church of Madison. To this union, two children were born. The family lived most of their lives on their farm east of Madison. In the fall of 2006, Lois and Herman moved to Alexandria, due to Herman’s ill health.
Death came to Lois on October 27, 2012 at Grand Arbor in Alexandria. She had reached the age of 83 years, 2 months and 14 days.
