Lois A. Herschberger, age 86, of Princeton, WI, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, March 8, 2020, at ThedaCare Medical Center in Berlin. Lois was born on December 3, 1933, in Chicago IL, a daughter of Calvin and Florence (Ring) Lund. She was the oldest of three children. Lois loved to learn and excelled in academics. She graduated from Karl Schultz High School early, skipping ahead two grades, and graduating at the age of 16. Lois attended Lincoln College for one year before joining the workforce. On July 11, 1953, she married her love, Arthur Herschberger. They were married for 63 years, until Art’s passing on September 23, 2014. Art and Lois started their marriage living and caring for orphans at a boys home. This played a large role in the compassion that they had for others. Lois faithfully followed Art, working beside him in his many business ventures, doing the necessary work to make them successful. Art and Lois owned several Propane distribution companies, both in Illinois, as well as in Princeton, and finally, Herschberger’s LP Gas, of Ripon. Lois’s best job was spreading the word of God. She loved the lord and wanted everyone to hear his message. She led numerous bible studies and was always available to witness to anyone that would listen, sharing her vast knowledge of God’s word, the Bible.
