Lois Knapp (Rasmussen)

August 5, 1929 — November 27, 2021

Wausau

Lois Knapp (Rasmussen), 92, of Wausau, left this world and was welcomed into her eternal home on Saturday, November 27, 2021.

She was born August 5, 1929 in Wausau to the late Otto and Frieda (Gottschalk) Rasmussen and graduated from Wausau High School.

On September 16, 1950 Lois was united in marriage to her high school sweetheart, Harold Knapp and together they spent 63 years raising their family and making memories.

Family was always important to Lois. She enjoyed playing card games, needle point and putting together puzzles with everyone.  She made her famous potato salad, apple slice and was a talented artist and whittler. Lois was a member of the Mary Martha Guild, volunteered for Shriners, the Chamber of Commerce and her Viagnette Ladies group that helped in the community. She always had time for her loved ones, and will be dearly missed by her family.

Lois is survived by her three daughters, Pamela (Al) Schroeder, Debra (Rick) Kniess and Carla (Steven) Marten; 10 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; brothers-in-law, Clifford Knapp, Charles Luedtke and Wayne Knapp and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Harold; seven siblings and three sisters-in-law.

The family would like to thank the Applegate Reflections staff, Interim Healthcare Hospice and pastor Timothy Swanson for their love, care and support they provided.

A Celebration of Life service will be 1:00 pm Thursday, December 2 at the Rib Mountain Lutheran Church, 227150 Harrier Ave, Wausau, with visitation from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm at the church. Interment will be in the Restlawn Memorial Park of Wausau. Helke Funeral Home is assisting the family.
