April 29,1929,inSudbury, Massachu-
setts, in thehomeofher parents,Leon-
ard D. andObeline (Cadieux) Stiles. As
ayoung girl, Lois was atomboyand a
good hitterinbaseball.“Youhad her
lasttime, we want Stiles on ourteam,”
the boys would say. During World War
II, whenshe was ayoungteen, Lois
learnedthe difference betweenbomb-
ersand fighterplanesinorder to report
on allflights she observedfromalook-
out tower on GoodmanHill in Sudbury.
She rode herbiketothe tower, which
was tall enoughto offerviews above
the tree line. “LuckilyIdidn’thaveto
ever seeaGerman plane,”she recalled
in “How IWon theWar,” achapterin
an oral historyrecordedfor herfamily.
During thewar,her school’s principal,
Al Flynn,would releasestudentsto
help at harvest time on localfarms,
includingone owned by Lois’suncle,
Harvey Fairbanks. They received
centsabushel for potatoes at atime
whentherewereno men of militaryage
left in Sudbury to do farmwork. “Every
now and thenwe’dget bored and
throw potatoes at each other,” Lois said.
“Uncle Harvey would comeout into the
field to chewusout,and we’d soonset-
tledown.”Lois graduated from Sudbury
High School in 1947. Herplanneddate
forthe prom,aBritish doctor,had to
cancel duetohis residency scheduleat
Mass GeneralHospital.When William
S. Edgerly, whosefamily had movedto
SudburyfromSyracuse, NY in 1937,
heard Lois didn’thaveadate to her
prom, he moved fast.“So that was a
hingeoffate,”Willrecalled in hisNine
Decades memoir.“We were dancing
on airthe wholenight,and everybody
was just allsmiles. It was an incredibly
memorableevening.” That fall Lois en-
rolledatLesley CollegeinCambridge,
MA,whereshe studiedteaching.On
June 12,1948, sheand Will were
married at the First Parish Unitarian
ChurchinSudbury.The following year
they movedto Rochester,New York,
where Will had been hired to work at
Kodak.Lois wasanaccomplishedoil
painter and wrote twobooks.Tillbury
