Lois Zora (Miller) Daneman was born on June 10, 1926 in Cook County, Illinois. She met her future husband, Martin "Marty" Daneman at Senn High School in Chicago, Illinois, and the couple dated through World War II, corresponding nearly every day (see TMD25 Martin L.

They lived in Ohio for 15 years and then settled in Texas in 1966. Both Lois and Marty completed the Plano Citizens Police Academy and volunteered with the Plano Fire Department. They were also active with the 10th Mountain Division Alumni Association. Lois was widowed after 70 years of marriage when Marty passed away on November 25, 2015.
