Lois Joswick Obituary

Lois M. Joswick, 75, of Wausau, passed away on Sunday, October 1, 2023 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

She was born on July 12, 1948 in Waukesha to the late Martin and Helen (Braun) Heinz.  Lois married Mick Joswick on August 17, 1968 in Waukesha.

During her career she worked as a dental assistant and an office manager.  Lois retired after 21 years with Delta Dental.  She had an interest in gardening and was a master gardener.  In addition to maintaining her flower and vegetable gardens, she also was a volunteer gardener at Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum and Monk Botanical Gardens.

Lois loved spending time outdoors, from snowshoeing in the winter to kayaking, walking, and outdoor dining all summer.  She enjoyed weekends up north in the fresh air admiring the dragonflies, wildflowers, and sunsets over the water.  Any time she could spend with friends was a good time.

Survivors include her husband, Mick; children, Tonya (Jim) Sumiec and Lee Joswick; five grandchildren, Melanie, Ellie, Aiden, Marabelle, and Cael; and two sisters.  She was preceded in death by her parents.

Lois wanted to be remembered in life.  There will be a memorial gathering of friends and family at Monk Botanical Gardens at the Kitchen Potager (pavilion) on October 15, 2023 beginning at 12:30 p.m. until 2:30 p.m.  Online condolences may be expressed at

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
