Lois was born May 3, 1925, in Grenola, to Stella Faye (Hunt) and Lloyd Emmett Stiles. She grew to womanhood in the Grenola community and graduated from Grenola High School in 1942.

She met the love of her life, Cleo Beu, at the roller rink in Grenola. They married April 17, 1943, in Tonopah, Nev. While Cleo served in the Army Air Corps, Lois worked as a courier for the B.F. Goodrich plant in Borger, Texas. In 1946, Lois and Cleo bought a home in Moline and settled down to married life.

She was the founder of the Moline Furniture Store and nurtured the business for three years before Cleo left his job at the Mercantile to assist her. Their combined efforts made the store a success for many years.

Lois was a gracious and loving person. Although she was a little shy, her smile was welcoming to everyone she met. She and Cleo were always together, and her love and devotion to her husband were evident.

She is survived by her husband, Cleo Beu, Winfield; two nieces, Jean Richard, Fountain Hills, Ariz., and Louise Ulrich, Green Valley, Ariz.; a great-niece, Cheri Goff, Grenola; and a host of friends in Moline and the surrounding communities.
