Memories Timeline


  1. My deepest condolences to the family at this difficult time. I hope the words at Rev.21:4 bring you comfort. It says: “God will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more,neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Condolences to the family. I will Always remember Eloise for her perfect Bite Sized Ginger Snap cookies among other goodies she would bake. I got to know her being her neighbor for many years and always enjoyed the treats she would leave for me. She was a wonderful lady, one who I considered very grandma like. Always there with a smile and encouragement if needed. When she moved from the building she bestowed upon me one of her Tractors… she had quite a collection of them from her time at Steiger. It is still in my possession and reminds me of her very time I see it, She touched many souls, I am lucky to be included in this group! May she rest in eternal peace!
