  3. Thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family at this time. Eloise was a wonderful person and I enjoyed her so much. I also remember your father and thought he was a great guy. You were so fortunate to have such wonderful parents. Love and prayers, Melba Jean

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with you today. I remember our
    Canada camping trip. When Aunt Eloise was warming her feet by the fire. Her shoes started smoking and she did a little dance when she stood up. In the morning those shoes were curled right up. To this day it still makes me giggle.

  5. My deepest condolences go out to the family of our dear Partridge Knoll friend, Eloise. She will be truly missed. We all gained so much from having known and loved Eloise.

  6. Dear Family,
    I am sorry for your loss. She is in a better place. I was a PT Dietitian for public health for 25 years. Eloise and Wendy recruited me. I spent many hours with her with patients. Such a wonderful caring nurse and outstanding person. She was a role model for many. My prayers for you all,
    Keith M. Carmany RD

  7. I was so sorry to hear of Eloise’s passing. Having worked for St. Lawrence County Purchasing Department, I became acquainted with both Keith and Eloise. (Keith in Sales and Eloise working in Public Health) They were both wonderful and caring people that I am glad to have known. May God comfort all members of the family. Bill Dibble
