Stillwell, age 87, of Pillager died Friday, October 9, 2020 at the St. Cloud Hospital.  Memorial services will be at 2PM on Friday, October 23, 2020 at the Brenny Family Funeral Chapel, Baxter.  Visitation will be one hour prior to services on Friday at the funeral home in Baxter.  Lois’ favorite color was purple; as a tribute to Lois guests are invited to wear purple attire.

Lois was born August 1, 1933 in Owatonna to Emery and Lucille (Clarke) Borwege.  She grew up in Wells, MN, where she graduated high school.  Lois continued her education at St. Olaf College in Northfield, completing her education in 1955.  Lois met Curt Stillwell while they were both teaching in Alden, MN and they were married on August 23, 1958 in Wells.  They moved to Howard Lake, and together they farmed and Lois worked as a Home EC teacher in the Howard Lake School District. The couple then moved to Fergus Falls where Lois worked at the Fergus Falls Children’s Home until her retirement.  Lois and Curt moved to their retirement home in Sylvan Township, she greatly enjoyed the serenity that the lake brought to her life.  She walked strongly in her faith and was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Brainerd.  Lois was also a member of the Senior Bowling League.  Lois enjoyed collecting dolls, purple glassware, reading, playing cards, and watching gameshows.  Lois loved animals especially her Schnauzers.  She was spunky, playful, and witty; Lois will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Lois is survived by her good friend, Joseph Kunstleben; brother, Jerry Borwege; brothers-in-law, Tate Stillwell, Jim Stillwell, John Stillwell; and many nieces, nephews, and extended family members.  She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Curt; brother-in-laws, Arnold Stillwell and Ben Stillwell; and sister-in-law, Harriet Lizut.
