    Elouise was one of the nurses I worked with in my early career as a nurse ( at Bethania). I was quickly impressed with her quiet but consistent spirit of compassion to not only her patients but co-workers as well. She became to me the icon of the nurse I wanted to emulate. I can still hear her soft little giggle and see her sweet smile. May your memories of Elouise bless you all and make you smile also. Sincerely, Cindy Rasile

    Sorry to hear about your loss. Elouise and Leroy were the best and loyal friends to my daughter, Michelle. Please know that you are in my heart, in my thoughts and my prayers.

    Mrs. Elouise was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She was always friendly and sweet to me. I miss our Friday suppers. She and her husband Mr. Leroy would serve catfish and good conversation.

    It has been a pleasure to have known "Ouise" for over forty years. Mrs. Davis was a lovely person; wife, mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother. She played the piano and always had an encouraging word. Blessed be the name of the Lord.
