Lois was a Valentine baby, born February 14, 1935 in Taos, NM to Lewis A. Armstrong and Mary E. Branson, who raised their 5 children on a farm in Cedaredge, CO. In 1952, Lois and 2 friends traveled first to San Diego, then east until their savings ran out in Kansas City. As part of their adventure each chose a nickname.
