Lois (Frye) Stuckard

Subject

Stuckard, Lois Maphis (Frye) (1911-2008)

Description

Portrait of Lois (Frye) Stuckard as a young woman.

She was the daughter of Edward Newton (1887-1967) and Cleva Alice (Wisman) (1884-1928) Frye. Her father was a farmer.

In 1923, both Lois and her older brother, Leonard, made the honor roll for their respective grades at the Pleasant Grove Graded School in the Stonewall District of Shenandoah County.

By 1930, her mother had died and she was the oldest daughter of three still living with their widowed father in the Stonewall District. An older brother, Leonard, and her grandfather, Atwell W. Frye, also lived with them.

The 1940 census found Lois married to John Milton Stuckert, an egg salesman born in Washington D.C. The couple lived in Washington D.C., and had a 6-year old daughter, Lois Hester Stuckert. Ten years later, Lois lived with her daughter and a lodger on N. Taft Street in Arlington. Her husband was not there. She worked as “Asst. Chief Cashier” for the National Food Corporation.

Her birth was recorded in the family bible (published in 1881). Her father had to bring the bible with him to help prove her birth to the Arlington County notary clerk when he and Lois officially recorded her arrival in 1952.

She lived at The Virginian in Fairfax, Virginia, when she died. Her obituary noted she had been the cash control manager for Knott Food Concessions and the wife of John Milton Stuckert.
