Memorial Service

Long time active Tree Farmer, Lois Niemann, passed away recently. Lois and her husband Ralph celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary a few years ago and have been active Tree Farmers for more than 20 years. The High Park fire recently destroyed their home and much of their Tree Farm.

Lois was chair of the Larimer County chapter of the Colorado Tree Farmers for some years.

A memorial service will be held at the Shepard of the Hills Lutheran Church, 1200 So Taft Hill Rd., Fort Collins this Tuesday, October 9 at 11am.
