Lois Limburg Crowell Obituary: A Distinguished Alumnus of Utah State University

On February 5, 2023, Lois Limburg Crowell, 91, died away gently in the company of her devoted family. On July 1, 1931, she was born to Madge and Evert Limburg in Ogden, Utah.

She was raised in “The Limburg Store,” the rear of a mom-and-pop shop. She was very helpful when her father was overseas fighting in World War ll. She cherished the years she spent playing on Child’s Avenue with her younger brother, Val, and her friends. She had pleasant memories of the time.

She went to Ogden’s public schools and is happy to have graduated from the illustrious Ogden High School. She chose to study business at Utah State University after high school because she enjoyed maintaining the books for her father’s grocery store. On weekends, her father occasionally flew her between home and school in a tiny plane. She joined the Sigma Kappa Sorority in college, where she was active.

She changed her course after a few years, dropped out of school, and started working. She was a bookkeeper for Badger Lumber in Ogden. She joined the Women’s Association while working for Badger and made some acquaintances there. These friends arranged for her to meet a tall, dark, and gorgeous man, and she fell head over heals for him right away.
