Eloise was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, "Nana," great-grandmother, mentor and good friend. She was a coal miner's daughter from West Virginia who came to New Mexico in the 1940's and made it her home.
She was a port in the storm for her family and friends. Her home and kitchen were the hub for holidays and family birthdays. She was strength and comfort in times of tragedy and crisis. She celebrated triumphs with style and exuberance. She breathed life into all things.
Eloise loved to sew and crochet. She was an avid gardener; cultivating roses and superb tomatoes and vegetables every summer which she shared with her neighbors. She was a lifelong learner, a humanitarian, a lover of good coffee and clever jokes. She was all this and so very much more.
Eloise is survived by 2 of her 3 children, all her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She will be very greatly missed, remembered and treasured always.
