Lois Marie Stoner was born to Leo and Mary Anne Stoner on August 8, 1953 at St. Mary's Hospital in Pierre SD. She lived on Robbs Flatt until the age of 5 where at this time the family moved southwest of Philip where she grew up and attended a rural school in Jackson County for eight years. She attended high school in Philip, she then attended National College of Business in Rapid City and graduated with a computer program degree.

Her first job took her to Eureka, SD where she worked for an insurance company until she moved to Pierre where she worked for the State of South Dakota until 2001.

On October 6, 2001 she was united in marriage to Bruce Beck. She made her home near Winner, SD where she helped her husband farm and ranch for the next eight years.

She has been a very dedicated member of the Lutheran Church in Eureka, Pierre and Winner. She could always be found gardening, or baking those new recipes, or her prize winning apple pies.

She played a special part in the lives of her nieces, nephews and step grandchildren, lending a helping hand to so many lives that she has touched through her path of life.

Grateful for having shared her life are her husband Bruce Beck of Winner; parents Leo and Mary Anne Stoner of Pierre; sister: Amelia Hurley and children Cassie Hurley of WY, Carrie Hurley of FL; brother Kenny Stoner and wife Robin and children Heather Stoner of Wall, SD, Cole Stoner of Murdo, SD; step-grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends.
