Relation: coworker/friend/aqua fit friend

she will be missed dearly she was a shy, kind, hearted, spirit. I used to be always asked, “hows your hubby” by her when I said” I’m not in fact not married yet I laughed” kind of flattered by this comment. I remember her saying “well you and yours have been together a long time” I asked her how long she’s been with her hubby she said “around over 38 years now” at the time I saw her… she had beautiful rings on every finger… I remember her well… the day my grandpa died heading on the bus ride home she gave me wishing stones to cheer me up that christmas… they stay on my shelf here remain here today…

From: Elaine Stahl
Relation: Old friend from high school

So sorry to hear of Elouise’s passing. Although I haven’t seen her in a long time I have thought of her often over the years. Elouise befriended me and helped me when I was young, and took me into her home as another sister. It is something I will always be thankful for. She was a kind and caring person, always worrying about others. My condolences to Andy, their kids, Wendy, her brothers and her Mother. May the memories of her bring you comfort in this difficult time.
