For Lois, I found the SS App, so I don't think she was married prior to marrying John Gorman.

Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007

[Lois Emily Gorman]
[Lois Gorman]

Birth Date: 26 Apr 1923
Birth Place: Chicago Cook, Illinois
Death Date: 19 Jan 2002
Father: Walter W Block

Notes: Feb 1940: Name listed as LOIS EMILY BLOCK; Jan 1964: Name listed as LOIS EMILY GORMAN; 24 Jan 2002: Name listed as LOIS E GORMAN

For John, an Ancestry tree has two other wives listed, but as "Private", presuming they are still alive. One of those wives, John seems to have had a son with, and here is the info on him from that tree:
Bernard Gorman
BIRTH 02 JAN 1962
DEATH 21 JAN 1993 • California, USA

So here is another twist on the above child ... I found two birth records in MN, listing different parents, but the fathers listed seem to be brothers, John and Henry!

Birth County: Hennepin

Mother: Terrill Peterson (one wife's name? or maybe they never actually married?)
File Number: 1962-MN-007510

An update - link to this child's memorial, explains a little bit more (sad):
