Lois Benthagen, 80, passed away April 11, 2017 at her home in Lake
Havasu City.

She was born in Minneapolis on Feb 19, 1937 to Don and Ann Little.
She grew up in Minnesota, graduated, and met the love of her life
there. She married Omar S. Benthagen on May 19, 1956. They started
their family and lived in Crystal, Minnesota.

They moved to Lake Havasu City in 1969, so she was a true Havasu
pioneer. She worked for Dr. Roesner at Solar Dynamics, Lake Havasu
Regional Medical Center, Imperial Beauty, and lastly at Safeway for
many years until her retirement.

Lois enjoyed being with her family, cooking, sewing, quilting,
camping with family, and going out to eat at her favorite local
restaurants. She also enjoyed being in the “Lois Club.”

Lois is preceded in death by her husband Omar Benthagen, parents
Donald and Ann Little, brothers Eugene Sautner and James Sautner,
granddaughter Andrea Benthagen, and great-granddaughter Lexi Gordon.

She is survived and will be missed by her sons Craig Benthagen
(Jeanne), Kyle Benthagen, Chad Benthagen, and daughters Kim
Benthagen and Kris Johnson (Randy), all of Lake Havasu City. She
also leaves behind eight grandchildren: Dustin, Dylan, Dan, Trevor,
Jayla, Allie, Selena, and Shanna as well as 10 great-grandchildren.

Per her wishes, there will be no service. The family asks that for
those wishing to honor Lois’s memory and celebrate her life, please
do a random act of kindness or pay something forword. Please think
of a happy memory and brighten someone else’s day in memory of Lois.

The family wishes to thank Hospice of Havasu, the doctors and
caregivers, and the Polidori House for all they have done.
