July 28, 1957 — September 23, 2019

Lois Arlene Bakkestuen, 62 of Winona, died Monday, September 23, 2019 at Lake Winona Manor. She was born on July 28, 1957 to Clifford and Ardys (Nottestad) Bakkestuen. She was baptized and confirmed at North Coon Prairie Lutheran in Newry, WI. Lois graduated from Westby High School in 1975. She worked various jobs throughout her life including 14 years at Watlow, 5 years at Polar Semi-Conductor, and 10 years at St. Anne's Extended Healthcare before retired from Benchmark in June.
On August 7, 1976 she married Dale Henry. They were later divorced after 14 years. She went into recovery in 1993 and enjoyed an alcohol-free lifestyle with the help of others in recovery. She maintained this lifestyle for 26 years and enjoyed fellowship with people in similar situations who knew they weren't alone. She learned the best life skills from the spiritual program of AA.
She enjoyed her children and grandchildren dearly and always tried to help them in times of need and happy times as they did her or anyone else.
