Recognized in the community as a pillar of faith and love, Eildred led a life filled with devotion, compassion, and joy.

Eildred was known for her unwavering commitment to her Catholic faith. As a longstanding member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, she actively participated in the Charismatic Movement and prayer group, dedicating herself to attending and teaching “Come Lord Jesus” for many years. Eildred and her late husband, John, were deeply involved in the Engaged Encounter ministry, generously opening their home to mentor couples and share their wisdom and faith.

Eildred and her husband John shared the love of travel and embarked on journeys in the U.S. and Europe during their retirement, including Medjugorje, Rome, Israel, Germany, and France. Their shared passion for spreading love and kindness impacted everyone they encountered.

Eildred’s spirituality breathed life into her worldly activities, and she experienced much pleasure in simple yet meaningful activities. She was involved with Home Demonstration for many years. Whether it was sewing for loved ones or delighting in the art of cooking, camping, or gardening – she poured her heart into everything she did. Her fondness for roses reflected the beauty she saw in the world around her.

Above all else, Eildred cherished family and children. Her nurturing spirit extended beyond her six children to include numerous foster children whom she embraced with open arms.  Eildred's role as a beloved grandmother brought boundless love and joy. Affectionately known as "Aunt Jay" to countless nieces and nephews she demonstrated with her life a tradition of strong family values and belonging.
