Elouise was born on February 23, 1924 in Toledo, Ohio, and spent some years in rural Potter County, Pennsylvania with her Aunt Myrtle and Uncle Harry Rennells. She attended Washington and Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia and has resided at her present address since 1950. She and Jack enjoyed returning to her beloved Pennsylvania mountains along with the family throughout her life. She was always enthralled with the fall foliage colors.
Elouise was a beautiful and caring person who found great joy in her family and the Truth she found with the Christadelphians. She had a deep love of music and voice, which she pursued throughout her life and loved playing the organ.
