Flo was born on January 10, 1925 in St. Anthony, Minnesota to Herman and Anna (Lehner) Vorgert. She married Michael Loso on March 29, 1944 in Arizona and they raised 12 children together. They lived all of their married lives in St. Joseph. She was a member of St. Joseph’s Parish, St. Joseph VFW, American Legion, and the Senior Citizens. She worked at Kennedy Elementary as a cook for 10 years and loved working outside her home.

In their later years, Flo and Mike traveled to Texas every winter. They enjoyed many good years of family activities and get-togethers with friends and relatives. Just prior to Mike’s passing away on November 20, 2015, they moved to her cute little “cottage” at Millstream Village in St. Joseph and began a new life without Mike. Flo loved to crochet, read, garden and was a fabulous cook.

She was gentle, funny, hardworking, kind, generous, and was loved by all who knew her. Most of all, she was proud of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and will be remembered as a caring mother and grandmother.

She is survived by her children, Tamie (Bob) Sorenson of Minneapolis, Lynda (Tom) Nordang of Ontonagon, MI, Mike (Barb) Loso of Maple Grove, Mary Jo (Larry) Beuning of St. Cloud, Bob (Noreen) of St. Joseph, Janet (Kim) Fischer of Rhinelander, WI, Terry (Linda) Loso of St. Joseph, Tim (Pam) Loso of St. Joseph, Loren (Sue) Loso of Cold Spring, Neil (Patty) Loso of St. Joseph, Norma (Dave) Koetter of Avon, and Steven (Lisa) Loso of St. Joseph; 32 grandchildren; 40 great-grandchildren; and two great-great granddaughters; sisters-in-law, Betty Ehresman, Grace Loso and Arlene Vorgert; and special friend at the cottage, Vi Whalen.

She was preceded in death by her husband; grandson, Billy Nordang; granddaughter, Nikki Fischer; brothers, Roman, Alois, Alfred, Ervin, and Walter Vorgert; and sisters, Dorothy Stuntebeck, Monica Brandt, Edvina Jones, Susan Althaus, Leona Davis and Marian Cichy.

A special thank you to all of you who have befriended and made Flo’s life so happy over the past years.

Memorials are preferred in lieu of flowers.

My condolences to the family. May fond memories from a life well lived (92 years) bring you joy. Psalms 90:10 says, "The span of our life is 70 years, or 80 if one is especially strong". I hope you draw comfort from these memories, comfort from family and friends, and comfort from God during this difficult time, and know that by means of a resurrection, God is eager to restore life to those who have fallen asleep in death (John 5:28, 29).

Flo put the awe in the word awesome. Her natural beauty inside and out made for much to be admired of. Thank you all for getting Mom so she could spend some time with Flo before she passed, that meant a lot to her. May the stories shared bring peace in the days ahead God Bless
