Eloise is survived by two children, Bill (Barb) Addy of Colorado Springs, CO and James (Irene) Addy of Windsor Heights; seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
Eloise spent most of her life as a volunteer teaching the Bible to those interested. She enjoyed horses and when she could no longer ride, she showed miniature horses at the Iowa State Fair and won ribbons for “Longman’s Miniature Horses.” Eloise loved her family, flowers, sewing, writing poetry and talking about God’s Kingdom.
