Eloise loved the LORD. She loved worshipping so much that she wanted to be on the front row so she could “feel” the music. Her love of music did not stop there. She also enjoyed playing piano. Eloise loved her family especially her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. She often did crochet and solved elaborate puzzles. Her family would get her stacks of books each week to read. She was an avid reader and before they knew it she had read through them all. Her reading included reading her Sunday School lesson every Saturday night! When she was not reading or crocheting you may find her watching westerns on television. She liked the simple things in life and she loved her family. Eloise was a loving mother, grandmother, and friend. She will be greatly missed.
