Lois was born on the family farm near Garrison on September 3, 1932, to William and Matilda (Hansen) Wilson. She attended country school until high school, graduating from Vinton High School in 1950. Following graduation, she was employed in the office at the local Green Giant canning factory. On January 21, 1956, she was united in marriage to Wilbert Stueck. The couple had two children, Steve and Susan. The family lived on the family farm southwest of Dysart. She was blessed with two granddaughters, Ellen and Hannah. She loved visiting them at their home near Des Moines and when they came to visit her on the farm. They enjoyed sewing and quilting projects together. She also loved watching them play softball in high school. She loved quilting, sewing and playing cards with her many friends. And as she told the staff at Woodlands Creek, she “loved being a farm girl.”
Lois is survived by her son, Steve; daughter and son-in-law, Susan and Steve Espeland; granddaughters, Ellen and Hannah; many nieces, nephews and their spouses: Ed and Shirley Fett, Ardie and Don Roehr, Leorita and Leo Hauschildt, Connie and Brad Oelmann and Arnola Stueck.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Willie; her 3 siblings and their spouses: Marvel Fett (Leo), Warren Wilson, Wayne Wilson (Charlene); brother-in-law and sister-in-law Arnold and Lorraine Stueck; and two nephews: Kevin Wilson and Mike Stueck.
