Lois was born on December 25, 1958 to Gerald and Dolores (Huberty) Linn in Paynesville, Minnesota. She grew up in the Paynesville area and graduated from Paynesville High School in 1977. After High School she attended Alexandria Technical and Community College and graduated in 1978. Immediately after graduation she began working for the Social Security Office as a Customer Service Representative, working with them for over 43 years. She was so appreciative and grateful for the many friends that she made over the years at the Social Security Office; she cherished their friendships and the help that many of them rendered to her. She was united in marriage to Timothy D. Murphy on October 8, 1988 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in St. Cloud. Lois was an avid reader, enjoyed watching sporting events on TV and playing cards and board games. She will be remembered for her quick wit, good sense of humor and cheerful demeanor, despite her life long battle with arthritis.

She is survived by her parents; siblings, Kevin (Kris), Kenneth (Lisa), Michael (Karen) and Lori (Louis) Kirscht; and nieces and nephews, Eric and Zachary, Enya and Nicholas, Emily (fiancé, Isaac Hanson) and Samuel Kirscht.

Lois is preceded in death by her husband, Timothy.

A special thank you to the staff of the St. Cloud Hospital for their loving and compassionate care of Lois.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.

I am going to miss you, Lois. You were an excellent worker, A+. You were also kind and sweet. I could count on you in the office to always smile and have a cheerful Consistently calm and positive energy in a busy office with many personalities. You were very helpful to the public with all the work you did. I hope I am good enough to make it to Heaven, where I know you will be.

Yours is such a bright spirit! Thank you for brightening things up while you were with us. Now we have to go on with one less gentle soul among us. I'll remember you when I see, outside my window, that the snow has gently started falling.

I have known Lois for many years. Most closely associated with her during my time in St Cloud from 1994-2005. She was an awesome friend, who always made me smile. She had a big heart with room for me as her friend. I will never forget her and all the laughter and fun we had.

I was blessed with the honor of working with Lois in St. Cloud for several years. We were kiddy corner cube mates so could pipe off quick witted one liners throughout the day to cope with our endless tasks. We would reluctantly find ourselves getting sucked into ridiculous reality shows texting about the disgrace after hours. We would often be some of the last in the office so she would get stuck with this high heeled escort to her car and we would often giggle about how I probably wasnt the best choice especially in the winter. But what will forever be her legacy is her ability to let bitter things out of her mouth with the most infectious smile that would never hurt anyone. Fly high Lois🥰

I had the good fortune to work with Lois for many years, and was always moved by her spirit of service and the great pride she took in meeting the needs of the public. She had a wonderful sense of humor, a caring heart, and will be greatly missed by her colleagues.

My deepest condolences to Lois' family. She was a special, caring person indeed. No matter the challenge, she would remain positive and do her absolute best for others. Her smile is irreplaceable.
