Eloise was born in Watertown, WI. She attended UW-Madison School of Pharmacy. This was the start of her lifelong love of Badger Football and the Badger Band. After graduation, she moved to Milwaukee and started her career at the Lutheran Hospital and continued on until retiring from Sinai Samaritan Hospital. She was a resident of Wauwatosa for over 50 years and eventually moved to Brookfield. She held many leadership positions within the community including the Wauwatosa Woman’s Club. After their retirement, Don and Eloise enjoyed traveling, gardening, and volunteering.
Above all Eloise loved her family. She was always present in the moment for each one of them. She will be fondly remembered for always saying “What can I do for you?”.
A special thank you to the staff at Congregational Home for the love and care they provided.
